When deciding what to take with you, here are a few questions you should search out:

What Is The Climate In My New Location?

According to NASA – “The difference between weather and climate is a measure of time. Weather is what conditions of the atmosphere are over a short period of time. Climate is how the atmosphere ‘behaves’ over a relatively long period of time.”

Knowing the climate can help you plan your wardrobe accordingly. You will know what to take, how much to take and whether or not you will need to purchase abroad.

What Is My Budget?

Some companies will include a Relocation fee when moving a single employee or an employee with his or her family. If moving on your own, you will need to calculate your moving cost into your budget.

Your budget will also need to weigh in the option of leaving things behind (storage, with friends, donations or yard sales), what things you need to make your life comfortable and what you may need to purchase at your new location. You may find that it is less expensive to purchase some items upon arrival or shortly thereafter.

Quick Tips:

Check your cellphone provider about International calls.
Make sure that you are utilizing your online banking.

Packing for the International Flight

While most airlines only allow around a 50 lb. suitcase limit, an International flight will allow for two suitcases. At this point, you will need to decide what you “must” have with you for the next two months. 100 lbs of what do I need most?

Important Items to Pack in your Carry-On luggage

Passport
Visa Information
Tax documents
Immunization and other medical records
