Planning and preparation

Moving overseas with children

Emigrating with children is never a small decision.

Either you’ve been thinking about taking the plunge for ages and have finally set the ball rolling. Or your partner has come home from work and announced that their job is moving and therefore, so are you…

If you’re panicking slightly (or a lot!) that’s totally understandable and completely normal. ExpatChild is here to help.

Now you need to start making plans for your future in another country.

Travel with kids is an amazing experience, but does take more planning than it would if it was just you and your partner. Kids thrive on change and love a good adventure, but travelling with kids is almost guaranteed to give you a few additional grey hairs.

Don’t panic! Grab a cuppa, relax and have a read through some of our invaluable and practical advice about preparing to move abroad with children.

We will help you with the worries and concerns we know you’re feeling right about now.
