Choosing a Retirement Tax Haven
The words "expat", "retirement" and "tax haven" are used together so frequently that you would think it possible to just open a book, pick a tax-free country from the list, and move there.

An important issue that many Expats tend to overlook when doing their initial retirement planning is whether or not their health insurance is going to be accepted in their new home.
