Probably the hardest decision when it comes to moving abroad is where to move to. There is a whole world out there that can offer a new life, a different culture and the chance for a secure and happy future. So how do you choose?
Most people that move abroad choose to take up residence in a country they have long been enamoured with. A place where they have holidayed regularly within a region that appeals to them and their desire to move abroad. If you are uncertain about where to move to, you could always consider a country with which you have some affiliation or even just a general interest. Make sure that you visit the country at least once before you make a final decision.
There are a number of things you need to look at to make sure the country is the right place for you and your family. Employment, education, property and financial responsibilities are important factors in the decision making process. You need to ensure you take up residency in a country that meets all your needs and can provide you with the lifestyle you long for. You also need to look at health care, religion, culture and local laws and legislations. Countries will differ greatly from the UK and moving abroad is not simply a case of basking in the sunshine every day. It is about a adopting a new way of life and fitting in with the locals.
Conduct thorough research into absolutely everything about the country and the way you will live within it before making the decision and finally the move. Make sure each family member is in agreement on the country and that they can have a good quality of life and a secure future there.
