Preparing to Move Abroad

Making the decision to move overseas can be exciting and nerve-racking. From leaving family and friends to learning a whole new language, being prepared to move abroad is a must. Using our years of experience moving people internationally, we’ve compiled a guide to help you prepare for your next chapter.

1. Planning ahead

Preparation is always the key to making anything run smoothly and that includes a move abroad. Make sure you start planning your move as early as possible. From researching schools to finding work, the earlier you start, the smoother the process is likely to be. 

2. Documents

One of the most frustrating elements of moving overseas is having the right documents. You’ll need these throughout the process so it's worth creating a dedicated folder so that you can always have them to hand. 

3. Checklists

Get organised by creating a checklist, this can include actions you’ll need to take from a couple of months before your move, all the way up until the day you are moving. For inspiration, explore our moving home checklist.
