1) Find a Quality Mover
2) Research Vehicle Options
Some people elect to take their vehicles abroad with them, but this comes with a set of rules and regulations that can potentially be quite complex (depending on your destination), and for that reason many others will simply sell their car, truck, or motorcycle. If you’d prefer to keep yours, look into not only what shipping will cost, but also whether your new country of residence restricts certain vehicle models or types from entering.
3) Have a Garage Salecountry to country, but there are a few constants you can count on. Prepare proof of existing vaccinations, and determine whether you may need any boosters or even entirely new vaccinations. You may want to bring full refills of your prescription medications, and back-ups of items like prescription glasses, which (until you get settled and transfer your medical records to a new physician) can be hard to replace quickly if disaster strikes.
5) Prepare Yourself Financially
One thing that many people don’t consider when moving to a brand new country is just how different financial systems can be abroad. Not only will you need to set up a new, local bank account and work with a new currency, you’ll need to educate yourself on taxation, how property is bought and managed, etc. Start with a quick Internet search to learn the basics before you even leave your old home. If you have specific questions, try bringing them to your current banker – they are often well-versed in international finance.
