Description
Content

Traditionally, emigration was a lifelong commitment to settle in a land far away in the hope for a better life. These days, there are as many reasons as there are individuals.

This book is a very sensible concise guide aimed at European nationals who want to work abroad. The book is admirably clear in addressing the issues that arise when moving abroad.
