Even if you’re relatively familiar with where you’re going, you’ll need to do a lot of research to plan for the big move and ease your transition into your new home. Among the many questions you should ask yourself and consider

- Is this the right place to be?
- My purpose of traveling can I achieve here?
- Can I do with the country rules?
Try to find out if the country you want to go for wheathe you can get there by road or air, if you plan to drive, you will want to consider the pros and cons of shipping your car, buying a new one, and renting a car. You may also need to get an International Driving Permit (IDP) before you move

You should go to bank in the country to find out the paperwork you need to register to set up a saving or checking account. It may take a long time for the process to be complete.
On phone providers, we advise you to ask your carrier to unlock your smartphone ahead of your trip. Once you are abroad, you can purchase a SIM card from a local carrier and replace it with the one in your phone.
