Michael, there is no clear guidance but what I have done in the past is the following: try and see what the cost of living is where they are compared to a city in the US. For instance, Tokyo is similar to NYC as far as cost of living. So if the client lives in Tokyo I would use NY for my guideline in all this, the low income certification (so within 48 US states) and for the allowable expense guidelines.
