The One Thing People Who've Been There Say You MUST Prepare Yourself For Before Moving Abroad

As you travel the world, you might hear about the many real and perceived flaws of Americans and America. You have to give Americans credit for one thing, though, between fast food, Amazon Now same day delivery, and on-demand entertainment, America rewrote the rules for service. The rest of the world, though, isn't in quite the rush. A thread on Reddit asked:

What's the #1 tip you would give to someone who wants to move abroad?


Because it's social media, there was more than one tip, but the original poster shared a story about patience. The example given was that it took a month to get a stove repaired in Germany. Most of the commenters noted that this example was extreme, but we concur that when dealing with other cultures, patience is certainly a virtue. The number one complaint all international movers receive is the amount of time it takes to receive a shipment. Movers don't benefit from keeping a shipment longer than necessary. Most of the time, the hold up is in the destination country. Employees in many countries lack the sense of urgency that seems to have become part of Americans' DNA. Of course, the slower pace of life is one of the reasons we move abroad, right?

Patience wasn't the only lesson Reddit expats shared, though

Another poster reminded travelers to keep at least one credit card open. The user didn't do that and after returning from overseas, had no credit whatsoever. They had to restart with a secured credit card. 

Here are some other great tips:

Be open to learning at least a little bit of the local language. For the most part, people will cut you some slack if you're learning and it shows respect.


Prioritise your budget - especially around accommodation, food, transport, and travel. You can afford anything, you just can't afford everything.

We ended up living in a new-ish small home, in a rough part of London. We could have moved further out - and doubled the cost of commuting, or even ended up needing to buy a car. We could have moved to a nicer area - and greatly increased ouR rent, meaning less money for travel.

But we were super clear that our reason for living in London was travelling, so we prioritised our budget around that - lots of friends, including other expats, used to simultaneously be amazed that we didn't have a much nicer home andthat we visited so many countries, without realising the two were connected.




Don’t burn any bridges. Give yourself a tentative time commitment. Have a backup plan in case things don’t work out. Homesickness is inevitable. Don’t try to hold on to a relationship or make it long distance. Invest in good footwear.




Have health insurance in place. I regret not having it as I got suddenly very sick and diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Currently trying to figure out my options now to get the health care I need while looking for work. I guess bottom line - finances. Be prepared for anything.


More than anything, people stressed the need to streamline lives and be financially prepared. One user, though, felt the most important thing was to put worries behind and just do it.
