If you’re relocating out of Ireland to USA, Europe, Middle East, or any foreign country, you’re going to need professional international movers and various other services in order to make this possible. Moving to a brand new country can be quite stressful, and it isn’t always smooth sailing. By making sure you hire the appropriate services, you can make sure the move goes well with minimal bumps in the road along the way. Read on to figure out how you can make this move a success with our tips and service recommendations.
Declutter Your Life
Start getting ready for your international move by decluttering your life. Get rid of things you won’t want to take with you, and be vigilant. Moving absolutely everything you own can cost more money than its worth, so it could be worth just taking your absolute essentials, selling everything you own, and buying stuff new when you get to where you’re going. Of course, this will entirely depend on your situation. Just start going through your things as early on as possible.
Find A Job Abroad With An Agency
If you haven’t yet found a job, there are agencies that can help you to find a job in the country you plan on moving to. Some people already have a job with their current work in the country they are relocating to, so if this is the case be sure to find out what support your workplace plan to provide to make your move as seamless as possible.
Check The Health Care Available
You’ll want to check the healthcare available in the country you’re traveling to. You may need to take out private health insurance to be sure you are well protected. Don’t forget to notify your GP on the move, either. You might need injections before you travel, so arrange these with plenty of time.
Find A New Bank
You’ll need a new bank in the place you are moving to, so do your research. You might be able to use the online banking facility of your current bank, but you’ll want to check with them. You’ll also want to check with the Inland Revenue regarding the rules applying to your tax now you are emigrating from the UK. You will also need to check the tax policies for your destination country.
Take Private Language Classes If You Can Afford Them
If the place you’re moving to speaks a different language, it’s going to be worth taking private language classes, even if you just get down the basics before you go. This will make your experience so much more pleasant, and you can worry less about things going wrong if you arrive with a few key phrases.
Find And Back Up Your Documentation
Make sure you are aware of the documents you require, and that they are all accessible and up to date. Check that you have easy access to all of your important information such as marriage certificates, birth/adoption certificates (long forms), current up to date driving licenses, medical records, and so on. Digitally backing up these documents will ensure they are readily available, so scan and store them in the cloud.
Arrange Your Visas
Visas can be one of the most important parts of moving abroad, as without them you won’t be able to live in your new country. Your employer may be supplying you with a work permit or visa, but it’s still a good idea to meet with the immigration office of the destination country. You can do this by contacting the local embassy for your destination country in the UK.
If you’re arranging your immigration yourself, you will need to ensure paperwork is correct. An immigration lawyer can help you with this, but certain other agencies can help you too. Notwithstanding this, it is advisable to employ the services of professional international movers who are experts in the field of international relocations for companies and or their staff.
It’s also crucial that you understand the immigration laws, deadlines for submissions of forms, time frames, such as how long you can legally reside in your chosen destination and, essentially, the rules applying to importing your household goods into the country.
Relocating Your Pet
An international removal company can do a lot of things, but it is unlikely they will be able to move your pet for you. This will mean you need to speak to a specialist pet relocation company or arrange your pet’s travel yourself. Make sure you check the customs and entry requirements as far in advance as possible. Your pet may need to spend time in quarantine at your destination.
If you do choose to move your pet you’ll need a pet passport, and you’ll have to ensure you have all the documentation in place for your destination country’s entry requirements. Your vet may be able to give you some helpful information, too. Whatever you do, make sure you take your time with this process and do everything by the book as you want your pet to be just as eligible as you to stay in the country.
Hire A Professional International Moving Company
A professional international moving company with experience and testimonials to back up their services will be invaluable in helping you with your move. They will be able to take your items from A-B, and may even be able to provide other services for you, such as packing. Moving certain items can be tough – like expensive items or large items, but the right moving company will be able to do it and do it safely. They will ensure that your belongings arrive at your destination in pristine condition and that you can breathe a sigh of relief ready to settle into your new country of residence.
