When you consider the challenges of a new job, language barriers, the loss of a support network, and other cultural challenges, moving can be quite stressful.
For these reasons, it is always wise and helpful to start planning for your relocation well in advance. The experts advise that people who are intending to relocate to have seven to nine months’ worth of expenses saved at the beginning.

- Before you move, make sure all of your debts are paid off
- Save up to seven to nine months’ worth of living expenses
- Crowdfunding can be a great option for raising money
- You can save your money in a low-risk savings vehicle such as Vesti. See https://www.wevesti.com/
