7 Things to Consider when Emigrating ...


Emigrating to a new country? It is an exciting and nerve-wracking experience at the same time. Here are a few golden emigration tips by guest contributor Kelly Rondinelli.

Emigrating is a huge undertaking in life. Not only is there the actual moving (the endless packing of suitcases and boxes) but there’s also lots of little things that you somehow forget and which eventually catch up with you (cancelling your phone contract being one!) Once you’ve wrapped up everything at one end, you’ve then got to face the challenges in the new country. Here’s a list of some of the challenges you’ll face during the process of emigrating, and a little advice on how best to deal with them.

1. Paperwork

This seems like an odd thing to start with but paperwork regarding your emigration doesn’t end as soon as you touch base in the new country. This is particularly true if you are applying for a visa; this can take months and months and with such a long, drawn out process, it can become really frustrating.

Speaking from personal opinion, the best advice I can give is to do your bit and let the rest go. If you’ve completed all your payments and your forms on time, or ahead of schedule, that’s all you can do. Organizations responsible for your visa and other paperwork have their own time frames and there’s really nothing to do but wait patiently. Take the time you now have free (as you’ve left your worries at the door) and invest it in yourself; you’ll need to take care of yourself now, while you get the chance, especially as you’ll be super busy in your new country of residence.
