I’ve created an initial wiki, which is available at

The idea is that Sinea and I are going through a lot of stuff (applying for visas, looking for a job, looking for an apartment) either now or in the near future, and it’s worth writing down the boring details of how we did it before we forget. Plus, some of the information we write down may not be totally right, or totally universal, or will change in the future, so it would be nice if other people can come and update it.

I do find lots of blog posts and forum comments of people’s experiences doing things like applying for a visa. The problem is that if someone else wants to add in their 2 cents, they do it as a comment, and you have to follow a trail of comments to get the whole story. I think a wiki format is better for consolidating the wisdom of the community. We’ll see if anything comes of it.
