Living in Chula Vista

Chula Vista, or Chula Juana (as it's fondly known to some of the locals), is the second biggest city in San Diego's metropolitan area. Aside from the glitz and glamour of Californian life, the state has some stunning features that make it an attractive prospect for any potential expatriate. Living in Chula Vista is a good place to start with your move to California. Not as big as Los Angeles, and as a result also not as daunting, the people of Chula Vista are incredibly passionate about their city, and equally as friendly to newcomers. Whether you have children with your, or you're just a big kid at heart, the massive water park at Knotts Soak City USA is a good way to mark your arrival. If you prefer something a bit more low-key, then the Chula Vista Nature Centre is probably more appropriate.

Moving to Chula Vista

InterNations' own publication, the Expat Magazine, has articles specifically geared towards making moving abroad much easier. If you're thinking of moving to Chula Vista, or you've already made the first steps towards expatriate life, then you might need some advice on how to make the move a complete pleasure. One article in the magazine for example concerns making plans before your move. The piece touches on making practical first steps, including where to get flight tickets or visas from, and it also gives advice on a reasonable time frame to start thinking about the trip. Another thing you have to think about before moving to Chula Vista is the kinds of taxes you will have to pay, and the pension information you may need to prove - the magazine has articles covering these topics as well, some written by expatriates who have made similar journeys and others by InterNations own editorial staff.

Working in Chula Vista is just the same as working anywhere else in the world, and just like anywhere else it can be very daunting on your first day. However, as an expat working in Chula Vista, not only will you be faced with a new working environment, but also with a whole new life abroad, which may seem strange and daunting at first. There are thousands of expatriates just like yourself who have left forum posts and messages in the discussion threads to describe their experiences abroad. As a member, you can browse these threads yourself in the search of advice, or leave a post of your own and wait for a response. The Expat Magazine also has a selection of articles you can read through on working abroad, each offering invaluable advice that will make your first few months working in Chula Vista as an expat a bearable experience.
