There are many things that frustrate me about being an expat in Australia: the lack of Amazon Prime, the fact that my excellent US credit score means diddly squat and somehow I don’t qualify for any credit cards or financing here, not being able to log into several of my US accounts online because they require phone verification with a US phone number, how unbelievably difficult it is to vote in US elections, and constantly having to transfer money between my US and Aussie bank accounts – just to name a few.

Among the many things no one ever warns you about moving overseas is how managing money suddenly becomes a massive headache.

Most expats I know here in Australia now use their Australian bank account as their primary money hub, since they get paid in Australian dollars and spend in Australian dollars.
