There are a number of important things to be aware of and take in to consideration when moving to a new country. Here are some of the main points from our experience:

  1. Culture Shock: Moving to a new country with a different norms and values can be overwhelming and stressful for many people. Be prepared to experience culture shock, which can manifest in feelings of disorientation, frustration, homesickness, and anxiety. Try to familiarise yourself with aspects of the culture as much as you can before relocating.
  2. Legal Requirements: Make sure you are aware of the legal requirements for living in the country, such as visa requirements, work permits, and residency permits. Failure to comply with these requirements can result in fines, deportation, or even imprisonment.
  3. Personal Safety: Research the crime rate and safety measures in the country you are moving to. Take precautions to ensure your personal safety, such as avoiding dangerous areas and securing your belongings.
  1. Cost of Living: The cost of living in another country may be significantly different from what you are used to, so it's important to budget accordingly. Research the cost of housing, transportation, food, and other expenses in the country you are moving to.
  2. Healthcare: Healthcare systems vary from country to country, so it's important to research the healthcare system of the country you're moving to. Determine if you will need health insurance or if you can access public healthcare. This is particularly important when moving from somewhere with a universal healthcare system like Australia to somewhere like the United States of America with a very privatised system.
  3. Support System: Moving overseas can be a lonely experience, particularly in the early days, so it's important to have a support system in place. This could include friends, family, or a local expat community. There are many expat communities that can be found through groups on Facebook that immigrants have found very helpful to build a community in the early days after moving.
  4. Mental Health: Moving abroad can be emotionally and mentally challenging. Make sure you take care of your emotional and mental health by seeking support when needed, engaging in activities that bring you joy, and staying connected with loved ones back home.
