Moving To Canada From Hungary – Is It Right For You?
Hungary is a great place to live, but if you’re looking for a change, you may be considering moving overseas to Canada from Hungary. Let’s discuss the basics of the process now, and help you decide if this is the right choice for you.
How Can I Get Residence In Canada?
Most people who move to Canada from Hungary do so for a work opportunity. If you are hired by a Canadian company, you can easily get long-term residence in Canada. Studying at a Canadian university is also an option.
For more information about your options, we recommend exploring this page from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada, which has more information about your available immigration options.
How Much Does It Cost To Live In Canada?
If you do choose to move to Canada from Hungary, the cost of living will be significantly higher, but your wages likely will be, too. It’s about 81% more expensive to live in Canada, compared to Hungary.
However, the average wage for Canadian workers is about $1,000 CAD per week, around $52,000 CAD per year. In Hungary, the average salary is a little less than $30,000 CAD. You’ll pay more to live – but you’ll make more money, too.
What’s The Best Way To Move My Stuff From Hungary To Canada?
You’ll need to hire an international moving company to move your household goods and other items from Hungary to Canada. Your stuff will be picked up and loaded into a truck, taken to a sea port, and then loaded onto a cargo freighter. Then, it will be unloaded, pass customs in Canada, and be delivered to your residence or a storage facility.
You can ship your household goods to Canada tax and duty-free. However, note that it may not be possible to import a car from Hungary unless it’s over 15 years old. It’s usually better to sell the car in Hungary and purchase a new vehicle in Canada.
How Much Will I Pay To Move From Hungary To Canada?
The cost of moving from Hungary to Canada can vary quite a bit depending on your location, how much stuff you are bringing during your move, the time of year, and a number of other factors. Each person’s job is different, so it’s impossible to provide an accurate estimate of the cost of moving from Hungary to Canada without knowing your situation.
To get an informed, accurate estimate for the cost of moving, we recommend that you contact an experienced international moving company like A-1 Auto Transport.
