    Top 5 tips for moving abroad


    Moving home is stressful at the best of times, but moving abroad takes potential stress to a whole new level. To minimise stress levels, follow these tips.

    Accommodation

    Make sure some sort of accommodation, however temporary, is ready and waiting for you. All too many people head out into foreign countries expecting their new homes to be ready only to find they are stuck without anywhere to go on arrival. If necessary, book a hotel or arrange to stay with someone you know/will be working with.

    Work and school

    Make sure you know what schools are available and arrange for your children to be enrolled there as early as possible. Unless you already have a job waiting for you, make sure to consider the job market and find out what your chances of getting work are to prevent getting stuck abroad with no job or money.

    Papers required for moving abroad

    Before moving abroad to work or retire, make sure you have all papers necessary for the country you are moving to. This may include visas, work permits, an international driving licence and/or other documents. If moving with children, you will also need to inform their school(s) and ask for transfer certificates and other relevant information.

    Vaccinations

    Some countries also require specific vaccinations not only for you and your children, but also for pets. While checking out what is required, you should also find out about quarantine requirements for pets.

    Health care

    While medical care is provided free of charge under the NHS, this may not be the case in other countries. Find out what is available and, if necessary, take out extra health insurance to cover you in case of illnesses or accidents abroad.

    These are just some of the basics you need to consider when moving abroad. You can find more detailed information at http://www.emigrate2.co.uk/emigrate-to/.

    Mishaps

    Illness and injuries abroad can happen whether you are living abroad or just visiting taking a holiday. Getting treatment or being brought home can turn out to be costly. If your injury on holiday was caused by someone else, you could be entitled to compensation. If you are, you may also be able to claim for some of the expenses you incurred because of your holiday accident.
