Getting ready to live abroad

Everything you need to know before going expat

Are you planning to go abroad as an expat? Whether you are leaving alone or with your family, the key to successful expatriation is preparation. To prevent last-minute panic prior to departure or unpleasant surprises upon arrival, getting ready to live abroad is a must. Begin building your new life in the host country: deal with all the paperwork in advance, learn as much as you can about your destination to avoid being hit by too strong a cultural shock and facilitate adjustment process. Getting ready to settle abroad generally is a matter of months: you will be going through administrative procedures, enrolling your children in school, organizing the international move… Also, don’t neglect the cultural aspect of the expat adventure. Take up language classes, request information on online expat communities… Go smart!

What if something goes wrong? Choose an expatriate insurance solution before you go abroad and leave safely.
