Chat with Eric (15 min)

Eric is living happily in Stockholm with his small family where he works as a data scientist. In 2011, he moved to Sweden to earn a master's degree and chase his then girlfriend/now wife. He's been splitting time between the US and Sweden ever since, in the process becoming an expert in difficult expat issues:

• How do I get my residence permit? 

• How do I get a job? 

• Do I really need to pay taxes in the US and Sweden?? 

• Do I need to learn the language? 

• What neighbourhood should I live in? Rent or buy? 

• Should I have a kid here? I had a kid! Now what?

Eric has spent an obscene amount of time figuring out how to successfully start his new life in Sweden, and hopes to save you some effort by advising you on your move.
