Moving abroad is never as simple as shipping all your belongings to the other country and settling in upon your arrival. It usually requires many hours of planning and coordinating your move and, once there, making a concerted effort to integrate into the local community. Nonetheless, nowadays relocating to an international destination is not as difficult and stressful as it may have been in the past.

With a surge of international relocation during the past few decades, countries across the globe are regularly reviewing laws, standards, and immigration procedures to attract expats and to make it less complicated to get settled in. We offer you tips to ensure your overseas move goes off without a hitch.

Take These Steps to Ensure Your International Move Goes Smoothly

Moving to a new country is only a headache if not planned properly. With a good plan, anything is possible. Not only will it help the move go smoothly, but it will also help you settle into your new community quicker and reduce the overall stress associated with moving. The tips below are basic guidelines to assist you during your relocation.

  • Make an informed decision on where you want to move. Not all moving destinations can be freely selected, as overseas moves may take place for the purposes of work and other commitments. However, you are able to select your destination, then the entire process starts as soon as you decide you want to move to a different country. Make sure you research your new home thoroughly and pay special attention to the cultures and laws of the country that you’re interested in. You should also consider how it will affect your relationships with friends and family and discuss with them how you intend to stay in touch.

  • Get all the paperwork in order. This includes documents like visas and passports. Make 100% sure that you are aware of every stipulation of your visa, including how you will obtain permanent residency (if that is what you want) and what you can or cannot do in the new country. Each country’s laws differ slightly in this regard, but you won’t be caught unaware if you did your research properly in the previous step.

  • Choose the right international moving company. When the time comes to start planning the move, you should consult with an international moving company like Elliott to find out how you will get your belongings overseas. Ensure that you communicate all your wishes to the removal company clearly. For example, notify them if anything needs to stay behind or go into storage. At Elliott, we will handle everything (including packing) to guarantee a stress-free relocation, so you just need to focus on getting yourself and your family where you need to go.

  • Adapt to cultural differences. You may struggle in the beginning, but there are ways to overcome the initial culture shock like reaching out to your local community and learning everything you can about the local cultures (by, for instance, by befriending local residents).
