Tips on how to make your international move easier

Packing and preparation

Start your preparations early to avoid unnecessary delays. In fact, most shipping companies recommend that you begin the whole process about three months to the day of moving. Indeed, this will give you enough time to attend to issues that take time such as applying for a visa and a passport.

As you do your packing, go through your items and arrange them according to size to save on space. Use larger boxes to pack light valuables and smaller ones to accommodate heavy belongings. This way, no box will be crushed during transit.


Ensure that you apply for a visa and passport. You will only be required to apply for a longer-stay visa if you are planning to stay in Portugal for more than three months. This is because the nation is party to the Schengen Agreement that gives this exception to US citizens


If possible, make arrangements to visit your preferred location in Portugal. While at it, familiarize yourself with the local culture, practices, languages, rules, and regulations. Also, engage with the locals to get as much information as possible. Be sure to also tour different places and locate shopping centers, local authorities, and other vital service providers.
