Moving abroad is an exciting experience but it could be quite stressful and challenging. There are so many things to consider, organise and get done before you leave your home country. Mary Johnson has prepared some useful tips on how to begin your expat life smoothly and minimise the pressure.
1. Choose the right destination.
Moving to a new place is a thrilling adventure, so choosing the right destination for you will make the transition even smoother. Researching the customs, holidays, and cuisine can help you make up your mind on where you’d think you’d fit in the best. Keep in mind that every place is different, so drafting up a pro and con list can also facilitate your decision. If you are still undecided towards the end, you can also think about visiting the destination directly beforehand to see if it’s the right match for you.
