Who You'll Need to Contact When Moving Countries

Guest article by

You might think that moving to a different country is straightforward.

As long as you start doing your research early, check in with your employer, learn about the culture, find out about your tax requirements and make sure you can access your funds easily, you could think everything is fine. However, you might be surprised at which services experts you would need to contact first and how many issues can actually be solved when you do.

1. Car Shipping Specialists

You might believe that car shipping isn't that high up the food chain. However, in order to do just about anything when you move to another country, you'll need your car. Renting a car isn't usually a practical option in the long term, and depending on the country, you might not be able to rely on getting around with cabs and public transport.

On the other hand, car shipping companies are able to make your problems go away by getting your car to its new home in minimal time and save you a lot of inconveniences. Transparent, versatile and capable of providing flexible rates and exceptional quality, the best car shipping services will be there for you even when you're moving to a new country at short notice.

2. Immigration Professionals

To move to a different country, you might require a visa and other special documentation that can help you start the process of becoming a permanent resident or of obtaining new citizenship. To learn everything about that and prepare your documents on time, it's essential to contact an immigration professional who specializes in helping people move to that particular country lawfully.

Immigration experts have already done all the research, so you don't have to. They'll help with understanding immigration laws, keeping track of deadlines, sticking to all the required policies for importing various goods, and more.

3. Moving Companies

You'll need to rely on a dependable mover to get all your belongings delivered safely and in good time to your new home. If you have already bought a house in the country in question, you can travel there in advance and wait for the movers to arrive. With a dependable, licensed, and bonded international moving company, there will be no reason to wait around long or worry that your costs will be too high or that your furniture won't arrive in one piece.

4. Employers and Recruitment Agencies

It's essential to keep track of employment details when you plan to move to a new country. Even if your new job is pretty much guaranteed, it's good practice to keep in contact with the employer and/or the recruitment agency to make sure all the right documents are prepared and that everything will go smoothly regarding your transition.

Strike up conversations on legal concerns, documentation, and organizational topics regarding anything you want to know, and ask about the culture, work ethic, and unwritten rules that you might need to know before starting to work at your new job.

5. Healthcare Providers

Don't count on the fact that your current healthcare plan will still be valid once you travel to another country - much less when you move to one. Healthcare is usually a considerable issue, since the laws and services in another country will differ. Consider doing your own research and contacting local healthcare professionals and insurance agencies to find out more before making your choice.
