Tips to moving abroad successfully

  • Learn about the local culture and how people interact and communicated in the area. Don’t overlook the locals and make sure you go out of your way to introduce yourself to friends and neighbours in the area.
  • Make sure you are aware of what the food is like out there. It might not be what you normally eat on a daily basis so you will need to get used to trying new foods.
  • Check what the local religious traditions are. The last thing you want to do is put your foot in it when it comes to a person’s religion.
  • Weather conditions. Whether it’s hot sun or snowy weather make sure you are fully aware of what types of weather to expect during certain times of the year and that you are fully equipped for the change in seasons.
  • Make sure that you are financially stable. The last thing you need is to fall into debt when you have moved abroad.
  • Get all the relevant visas sorted well before you leave. Check your passport is not due to expire. Most country don’t allow you in if your passport has only six months less.
  • Don’t just pack up and move abroad for the wrong reasons. Make sure that it is what you want and you aren’t just running away from problems, they won’t just disappear.
  • Use local expat forums and find out what life is like as a UK citizen living abroad. Find out about local events and communities in your area.
