Moving Abroad Checklist
Moving abroad can be stressful so the friendly lot at WanderingBrits have created a moving abroad checklist to make things easier. You can find lots of tips for packing and moving abroad in our WanderBible which is full of articles for WanderingBrits. If you can think of anything we’ve missed, feel free to add it to the comments.
Underwear (preferably at least 2 weeks’ worth)
Pajamas (If you are a wearer of such garments)
Toothbrush & paste
Devices and chargers (laptop, tablet, phone)
Suitable footwear, umbrella and coat
Toiletries – don’t waste space on things you can buy abroad
Travel Adapters (1 will not be enough)
Transport map – or at least a link to a decent one
Power pack for your mobile phone
A sim card with good international rates (see ‘Feel at Home’ deals by Three or ‘Feel Like Home’ by Lycamobile)
Emergency phone numbers written on paper – family, emergency services abroad, landlord, work
Things you can’t get abroad. Think Cadbury chocolate, a decent cup of tea or for the ladies those monthly applicators can be difficult to find.
Booking details for transfers, accommodation, health insurance and any useful addresses
Wedding/name change ….any other certificates
Hotel confirmation/ Proof of new address
Home comforts (If you have the space)
Your lucky charms
Snacks – you can even get these delivered with our WanderSnacks British food box subscription
Top tip: Check with your airline on where your laptop and liquids should be stored for your flight
