1. Arrange a pre-visit
First things first! What could be worse than moving to a new country only to find out that it really wasn’t what you expected? Whilst a good session or two on cultural differences will certainly help you understand what to expect, you should try and visit the location for a few days before you make the move. Have a tour around to investigate the local facilities and amenities and look at a few housing areas. You could even make a couple of appointments to view some rental properties, so you can get a feel for the size and quality. Forewarned is forearmed.
