It’s hard to know exactly how much an overseas move will cost. Your international move coordinator can help you create a budget for moving overseas, accounting for things like moving costs, taxes, fees, insurance, and customs expenses.
You’ll also need to account for living expenses, and do a little research on your own. For example, you’ll need to update your shots, depending on your destination. If the climate is drastically different from where you live now, you might also have to foot the bill to outfit your entire body from head to toe. Also, you’ll need to factor in temporary living expenses to hold you over for about four to six weeks until your things arrive. Make sure to account for hotels, restaurants, public transportation, car rentals, and cabs. Call your country’s embassy or consulate, or check online to get more information.
