International Moving Checklist

  • Written by News Company



If you're planning on moving overseas then you'll need to be prepared for the big day. There is a lot to organise before you go and you definitely don't want to leave anything behind. To ensure your move is as easy and stress-free as possible, keep this moving checklist on hand and use it as a guide throughout your move.


Do your research



Before you begin to plan your journey overseas it's a good idea to do a bit of research first. Moving to a new country can mean learning a new language, experiencing a new culture, and understanding new customers and traditions. Researching your new home will mean it will be a little less stressful when you arrive.

Learn some basic words or phrases from your new language.

Look up the public transport system.

Find shops and other amenities near your new home.

Reach out to any family or friends who live in the area.


Look for work



Whether you have work lined up already or still need to find a job it is a good idea to analyse the job market before you leave. This will give you a better idea of what to expect when you arrive and will ensure you know what your rights are.

Find average salaries and wages for the industry you work in.

Ask about company relocation.

Research what benefits and leave allowances you get.

Check what the equivalent industry accreditation is for your qualifications.


Prepare a budget



Creating a budget for your move will ensure you are prepared for every expense you can think of. Although some unexpected costs may arise, if you have allowed for this it won't affect you too strongly. Make sure you factor in exchange rates to ensure your budget is as accurate as possible.

Become familiar with the local currency.

Tell your bank that you're moving overseas and provide a change of address.

Allow for at least a year of expenses.

Find out the average cost of living in your new destination.


Complete any documentation


Keeping all your important documents safely stored in a folder when you move to your new home will help you to stay organised when you arrive. If you have all the necessary paperwork on hand, your transition to your new country will be much smoother.

Apply for visas and ensure your passport is up-to-date.

Create copies of all important documents like birth certificates, wills, insurance poliices, and medical records.

Back up your documents online or on a external hard-drive.

Book all flights and accommodation.

Arrange mail redirection.


Notify service providers



Before you leave you need to ensure you have cancelled all your utilities and let the important service providers know that you are moving. This will make sure you avoid paying additional fees for services that you no longer need.

Inform government agencies such as the tax office and the electoral commission that you are moving.     

Let your real estate or property manager know that you intend to vacate if you are renting.

Cancel any subscriptions you have that are sent to your old address.

Make sure you've disconnected all utilities and the internet.
