As if the process of moving house wasn’t stressful enough already, add to that the fact that you’re moving your family and all worldly possessions to another country and you could be looking at a major headache.

There are a lot of things to take into consideration when upping sticks and moving to pastures new. If you’re moving to an European Economic Area (EEA) country things will be easier, but a trip to the British embassy is in order if you want to move further afield.

Language barrier: Perhaps the most obvious thing to consider when moving abroad is the language gap. Ideally you will learn as much of your new native tongue as possible before you head out, but that’s not always feasible. At the very least get a phrasebook to help you by as you pick up the lingo. A lot of European countries have good conversational English, but they’ll appreciate it if you make the effort to converse in their mother tongue.

Culture shock: Every country is different, and what’s OK in Oslo might be taboo in Turkey. Getting a good guide book can help you know what to expect. Be careful what you take on your move as well, certain countries don’t allow alcohol and bringing some bottles could land you in trouble. The key point here is to do your research beforehand to make sure your European move comes off without a hitch.

Health: You need to know your welfare rights abroad, some benefits are not payable if you move out of the UK. Private medical insurance is recommended to cover any issues you might have in your new home. An EHIC card can substantially reduce the cost of health care in European Economic Area Countries.
