The first consideration has to be why you want to move in the first place. If it is to escape something, it is worth remembering that troubles are best resolved or else they will follow you. If is for a positive reason, then this is a good starting point.

You need to decide upon the purpose of the move and how it can be achieved. You need to research the country and the available facilities properly before you go. This is now made much easier through the internet. Think about how you will fund yourself. If a job is required, try and make sure you have a job before you leave. If you have savings, work out how long they will realistically last.

You must decide on a destination that suits you. Look into visa requirements and vaccinations to save disappointment upon arrival. Also check the medical facilities and costs in case of ill health. Take religious and language elements and political stability into consideration as they can affect your happiness to a great degree.

Financial decisions need to be made such as whether you will sell your home or keep it as a back up. Research the cost of property and of shipping your goods across; the procedure may be more expensive than it initially seems.

If you have children, you need to take their welfare into consideration. Look into the standard of education and consider whether their quality of life will improve. Research whether there are other people who have made the same move that can help guide your move and provide a support network. Extensive research and preparation beforehand will enable an informed decision, and save upset and problems later.
