Are you moving abroad? If you are, then you must be excited for the next chapter in your life but at the same time stressed out hoping the move will go well. Part of the process might involve navigating paperwork and possible red tape. For this, you will have to prepare several important documents for your relocation.
Below is a list of all the documents you will need:
Ensure you have a valid passport with a minimum of 6 months validity to be allowed to enter your destination
- Visa for you and your family
You and your family will need to have the relevant and valid visas of your destination country before you make the move in order to stay in the country for a certain period of time
- Work Permit
In certain countries, having a visa does not mean you can automatically work there. You will be required to have a Work Permit in order to work there.
- Birth Certificate
This will allow you to complete official work for you and your family and requires the document in your destination country.
- School Records
To transfer the records to the new school and your child can begin without delay.
- Medical Records
Medical Records may be needed for work or your child’s school before they can enrol.
- Insurance Cards
To get health insurance in the destination country.
- Marriage Certificate
To prove a marital relationship for tax purposes and other official work.

Besides having all these documents accounted for, you will need to do two things for a smooth relocation. First, keep every document in one safe location which you can remember to avoid a scenario of a misplaced document. Second, you must bring all these documents with you in your hand carry and not pack them into the relocation boxes just in case you need immediate access to them. Once, they are all in order, you are one step closer to completing your relocation plans.
