If I have questions related to ending my time as an expat, should I ask them on Expatriates?

To be clear, these would be issues that are caused by both of the following (not just one of them):

  • having been an expat in the past
  • not going to be an expat anymore

Would such questions be off-topic because I will be a non-expat, living in my native country?


If it's an issue that only an expat faces or will face, then yes. And similarly moving home is like being an expat for the second time.

For example, recent-expats may have questions about filing tax return from overseas if they still need to do so, now that they're no longer living in that country.

However, rather than a blanket statement, as there's always likely to be exceptions, basically - once again, follow the guide of - if the problem faced is not unique to an expat, it's possibly off topic. Of course no harm in asking, it can always be closed if off-topic as the site evolves. There's also the chat to ask in, if you don't feel it's suitable for the site, although it's not as busy a chat room as some of the other sites...yet.
