International Moving Tips 2022

We know that the prospect of moving to a new country can be a very stressful experience, especially when a lot of companies make a big deal out of long-distance transporting, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Best Miami Movers is a customer-centric company, and we specialize in top-notch moving with thorough deliberation of clients’ demands.

Here are some essential tips to help the process go as smoothly as possible, without a hitch.


Notify the necessary government agencies before your move

Get the admin side of things out of the way by notifying relevant agencies in advance.

Some key agencies include:

  1. IRS
  2. Local DMV 
  3. USPS
  4. Federal Voting Assistance Program
  5. Social Security Administration


Create a timeline for important events & allow plenty of time to get things done.

Planning everything too far in advance can actually hinder your progress, but instead, you can opt for outlining important tasks and events, and give a deadline by which they must be done. This way, you will know what to expect, whilst also having enough flexibility for any smaller things that don’t quite go as you’d imagined.

Moving to a new country is a big step, but allowing yourself the time to check you’ve done all that you need to do will save you from a lot of unnecessary stress later on.


Ensure your paperwork is in order

There’s nothing worse than moving, and realizing you’ve forgotten important documents. Take extra care by making sure you have researched everything you’re going to need and forming a list, to avoid this problem. It’s also useful to back up all important documents online (e.g. the Cloud). See some common documents below.

  1. Passport
  2. Visa/ citizenship documents
  3. Work permit
  4. Driver’s license
  5. Medical records (including vaccination status)
  6. Birth certificates
  7. School records
  8. Marriage certificate/divorce papers
  9. Any required vaccinations for pets


Find out the COVID regulations of your destination country

The past few years have led to the enforcement of an unprecedented number of new regulations. To prevent yourself from being caught off guard, spend time getting to know the regulations of your new country. The transition will be much smoother if you know what to expect.
