Questions about activities, events and challenges close to the time at which you arrive in the country in which you will be expatriated.

Roughly speaking, the beginning of the expatriation experience can be divided into several time periods: Consideration; pre-move arrangements; travel; arrival; settling in etc.

This tag is intended for questions having to do with you having just arrived in the country to which you are expatriated and having to find your "stable footing" - making initial arrangements, avoiding culture shock, and generally making it through the first several days (or at most, several weeks). Beyond that, you have already "arrived" and should use other tags.
