12 Tips for moving internationally

Many people have dreams of seeing the world and it comes true when an opportunity occurs to move abroad. Each person’s reasons are unique to themselves but the preparations are pretty much the same for everyone who decides to move internationally.

  1. The first consideration is of course location. This choice of destination often determines many other decisions. Consider the availability of health care, schools, highway and road access to work and recreation locations. Research the country or locale to know if it is a crime-free area and certainly keep the climate in mind.
  2. Consider the language spoken in the new country and learn to speak it fluently.
  3. Find out what you need to do in order to receive visas and work permits. Every country has different requirements.
  4. Set up mail forwarding well in advance so there will not be a delay in receiving important correspondence. Inform family and friends of the new postal requirements and charges.
  5. Choose a bank that is familiar with the old and new currencies, set up an account and order checks and charge cards in a timely manner so these are available from the very first day you arrive in your new home.
  6. Decide how you will move your belongings. There are only two choices, by air or sea. Air cargo is more expensive but many people prefer it so they have access to their own things in a timely manner. When unsure, call a full service moving company to assist you.
  7. Hire a reputable long distance moving company. Proper packing and shipping will ensure your treasures arrive intact and undamaged. A local moving company knows how to properly pack and ship as they are highly experienced. Moving and packing companies can be a lifesaver during a big move – they save you tons of time and ensure that the safety of your belongings.
  8. Prepare a file to keep on you during the move. This should include birth certificates, passports, immunization records and the like. These will be required at some point and are almost irreplaceable – or at least very hard to replace from a different country.
  9. Sell or rent your current home if you own it. Contract with a dependable real estate company or manager so you are worry-free in this regard.
  10. Pay a visit to the country you are considering. This sounds like a ridiculous suggestion to some but is critical. A lifelong dream to live in some remote region may become a nightmare once one has committed to a long period of time there.
  11. Schedule a time for utilities at the old location to be disconnected. Leaving them on, can result in a large bill to pay or even encourage squatters to move in and live in comfort at your expense.
  12. Relax and enjoy the move. Splurge on a hotel room the night before the big move so you are well rested and relaxed.

Taking time to plan well will result in a positive move, one that gives you a great start on your new life abroad.
