Here is what they say:

Have reserve money. It's highly likely something will go wrong: you might not get your first paycheck for at least a month; you may need a security bond for an apartment, or have to furnish a new place.
Be prepared for culture shock. Change brings chaos, which is only elevated in a strange environment. Culture shock can hit you when you least expect it and have you running for the nearest flight back home. Ensure you are traveling with eyes of wonder and gratitude for the differences.
Prepare your paperwork. Ensure you arrive with references and statements of services, especially if you do not have a job yet. And make sure you collect these with each new job you take on in any country. Also, have your degree certificates, resumes, police checks and birth and marriage certificates. You will often need them when setting up things like a driver’s license in your new country. It can be a massive and lengthy headache if you don't have easy access to them.

I think one of the most important aspects of being an expat and living in a country that's not your own is being flexible. Things are fantastic and happy when all is going according to your plan — but that won't always be the case, and if you're flexible and open-minded from the start, you'll be much better prepared to face challenges and situations that don't turn out the way you had imagined.
