You might be wondering, where does one begin with moving their life abroad? Here’s a step by step guide to help get you moving:
- Research your career prospects: There is plenty of work opportunity in Thailand. You don’t necessary need to carry on with the same type of work that you are currently in, but if you have a speciality that is in high-demand in Thailand (e.g., teaching, tech, marketing, etc.), then you will be able to find something suitable.
- Look into the necessary amenities: Think carefully about what you need to thrive and then start researching areas in Thailand that can tick all of the boxes. For example, if you are moving with children, you’ll want to look at areas that have decent international schools, healthcare facilities (e.g., Dental Care), and extracurricular activities. Fortunately, you’ll be pleasantly spoiled for choice.
- Search for property: The next step is to find a suitable property to invest in. You’ll find no shortage of houses for sale in Thailand. Or better yet, buy that beach-front villa you’ve always dreamed of!
- Arrange visas / work permit: If you apply for a job in advance, your new employer will be able to help you with arranging the necessary visas and work permits. It can feel a little overwhelming at first, but there are also Visa Companies that can make the process as painless as possible for you.
- Tie things up at home and jump: Once you have all of the necessary features in place in Thailand, tie up your loose ends at home and book those flights. Just go for it!
