International Moving Checklist
More than any other move, an international move requires months of planning and coordinating. It can be easy to get overwhelmed during the moving process.
From worrying about customs clearance to figuring out the important documents and medical records that certain countries require. As a family-owned company offering global moving services, our moving crews have picked up a few tips to help ensure a stress-free move.
Your visa is what will allow you to reside in your new country. For corporate relocations, your company will often assist you in obtaining one. If your move is not work-related, make sure you go through the proper channels to obtain a tourist visa. If your relocation is permanent, we recommend going the course of citizenship as soon as possible.

- Prepare Finances:
Open an international bank account before your move date. Many times debit and credit cards will be frozen or suspended in a foreign country. Having a fallback bank account helps eliminate a dire scenario. Notify your current bank of your move as well to help avoid any issues.
- Research The Country You’re Moving To:
It sounds obvious, but you’d be amazed at how much research you should do and how early you should start. Whether you want to casually research leading up to your move or create an encyclopedia of sorts, make sure you do your due diligence.
- Gather Important Documents:
In the week leading up to your move, gather all your important documents. This means birth certificates, medical records, marriage licenses, passports, etc. Make sure you keep these documents on you at all times. Don’t let them get put into a moving box and get lost in the shuffle.
