My husband works for a major French company in Miami and has just been asked to write his 'conditions' to move to HQ. We are giving a shot at asking for the usual expat. package:
- Rent allowance
- Tuition - very important condition as my boys, 6 and 3, are French/American and are currently enrolled in a great bilingual program here in Miami, so I'm looking into the French Int. School.
- Local health, dental, eye, meds. insurance (is this included for granted in all expat. packages or do we have to negotiate it?)
- Moving costs
- Yearly trip back home (Miami)
- I was told that here expats get a set-up allowance to furnish the appt.
Does all this seem reasonable?
I was wondering if in HK families live near the children's school. Here in Miami it is a great advantage to live near your child's school since rush hour traffic is horrible.
Additionally, I have heard that in HK having a car is not that indispensable. So how do you get around with two small children? How do you travel to see other places?
I am sorry for including so many questions in just one thread. We have to give the exects. in Paris a reply soon.
I really appreciate in advance any answers and/or comments!
