Expert Expat Advice

Sara Dyson - Croatia Consultant

If you’re looking for personalized assistance with your Croatian living experience, you can schedule a private consulting session with me, Sara Dyson, the original Expat in Croatia.

I’ve lived in Croatia since 2012 (before the country entered the EU), opened and operated 2 companies, applied for 5 residence permits as a non-EU citizen and written about Croatia and its bureaucracy extensively since 2013.  I’m well-versed in what it takes to make Croatia your home, which obstacles to look out for and how to make as seamless a transition as possible.

In just one session, I can save you weeks of researching and help you avoid road blocks and red flags.

During our chat, we will cover all of your questions about Croatia. You can pick my brain about anything; whether it be residency, citizenship, healthcare, buying property, letting accommodation, operating a business, what it’s like to live here, my personal experiences with bureaucracy or even my favorite local holes-in-the-wall. It’s all tailored to you.

As a bonus, I will follow-up after our session with additional information, links to relevant resources and contact information for local experts personally vetted by me like lawyers, real estate agents, accountants and translators. All recommendations and resources will be specifically curated based on your individual needs discussed in the session.

You can read reviews from people I’ve helped here.

Consulting sessions cost 50 Euros per half hour, prepaid in advance. This cost includes:

  • Preparation time before our session
  • Duration of our session
  • Preparation of follow up email after our session with resources and contacts

Meetings can be arranged over video chat, or in person. I’m always happy to meet people in-person in Split, but please note the minimum commitment for an in-person session is 1-hour or 100 Euros.
