Documents

There are many documents you will need to acquire prior to arriving at your overseas destination. First of all, ensure that your current driver’s license is valid and up to date. This proof of identification will be necessary for the application process for other forms of identification. If you don’t have a valid passport, you will need to go through the process of applying for one as soon as possible. It can take weeks to receive your passport, but it may be possible to apply with an expedited process for an additional fee.

You will need to get passport-sized photos for the passport application. When you apply for your passport, take proof of U.S. citizenship and your driver’s license or another valid form of photo identification with you to the office. For your first passport application, you must apply in person. To renew your passport, you can apply by mail unless it has been altered or damaged. For more information, see the United States Department of State website.

Once you receive your passport, keep it in a very safe place. In preparing for travel, place your passport and other identification in an easily accessible place along with your airline tickets.

Depending on your destination country, you may need special travel or work visas in order to live and work in that country. Visa requirements are different for people who enter a country for tourist purposes and those who enter for reasons of employment. There are student visas, business visas, and tourist visas, all of which conform to varying specifications and permit a person to enter the country for different periods of time. You can find out specific visa-related requirements by contacting the local consulate of your destination country; call the country’s embassy for further information.

There will also be specific requirements in terms of procuring a driver’s license in your destination country. Depending on the area you’re moving to, you may or may not be able to use your United States driver’s license. You may need to take a driver’s test as well as a written test to prove your knowledge of the driving laws and rules in your destination country.

Be sure to check with your moving company regarding customs documents, insurance certificates, and any other country-specific documentation required concerning the transport and arrival of your property to an overseas location. Info Moving.com can put you in touch with an international mover that has the knowledge and experience to make your overseas move as smooth as possible.
