Posted by on November 24, 2018 in News Flash with 0 Comments

Are you planning to move to one of the modern, immigration-friendly countries across the globe? Well, it definitely sounds exciting and you would be overwhelmed to plan and execute the much-anticipated transition. While some find it comfortable to immigrate to a bustling city, others may find it a bit challenging and daunting. However, keep worries aside. We got you covered with our five best tips that will help you settle in the new place without any hassles.

Savings should be your KEY consideration

Immigrating to a brand new city and unfamiliar surroundings is certainly not a cakewalk. It requires diligent planning. Shifting requires money to manage your everyday routine in a different place. You also need it for shipment & transportation, visa & air travel, pay to an immigration lawyer, for emergencies and miscellaneous expenses. Factor in the cost of living in the new city and your overall cost will be quite hefty. Therefore, saving money should be your primary goal. Whether you have to go green to save money, downsize your preferences or slash your daily expenses, make sure you have enough cash stashed away (6-month savings at least) to help you settle without breaking a sweat.

Hire a Competent Immigration Lawyer

I recommend using the services of a good lawyer experienced enough to make your city move effortless and stress-free. Make sure you consult with professional firms only that have experts who can handle the immigration matters for your intended destination. For example, if you are planning to move to Los Angeles, I suggest you check with a reputable attorney like LA immigration lawyer, Joshua L. Goldstein. Expert lawyers have good knowledge of the immigration rules and statues defined by the state authorities of your destination. They will enable you to get past gritty visa or passport issues including settlement hassles that can otherwise be quite vexing.

Have Your Passport & Visa Ready

Consult with your lawyer when applying for a visa or passport. Depending on your intended city of residence, the visa requirements including your passport validity details may vary. Some countries might require a 6-month validity mark for your passport before your arrival date. However, if your passport expires as you arrive, you can have it renewed at your local embassy or the US consulate general. Research thoroughly for the pre-requisites including the documentation required by the new country's government through their website. Make sure you have all material ready before you file in an application.

Check For Health care & Safety Aspects

Before you hit your new place of residence, it is a good idea to check with the local health care system if there are adequate amenities for living. Consult with your health care provider if they will cover your medical expenses in the new place or you have to pay it yourself. The local embassy provides a list of medical resources for your intended city of residence. It gives you an idea of how you can manage your medical bills. Moreover, consider registering with STEP, the U.S. Embassy's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program to get the latest updates on the safety aspects of the new city you will be living in.

Do Your Research

It is good to have a clear knowledge of the new-city culture, community, various socio-economic aspects, and city-life before you make the move. Research thoroughly and learn about the new place to ease your transition and blend in with the locals for a great life ahead.
