International moving from Japan isn’t an easy job, especially when it’s your first time. Keeping this in mind, we have composed a list of things you should consider before relocating from Japan to another country. So, read till the end and pay attention to each of the following points:
Pack the stuff you want to take with you
It involves packing and shipping your stuff you think is necessary. The order of things/tasks isn’t set in stone when you’re moving from a country to another. You should start packing all the necessary stuff, such as curtains, books, crockery, and other things into strong cardboard boxes, which you can buy at the local post office and they will cost some extra money. You should consider using surface mail to send these boxes to your new home in another country. It’s advised that you should send your home stuff to the intended location around two months before you move out of Japan. Your goods should arrive in 1-3 months, depending on where you are moving.
Get rid of unnecessary things
To get rid of the household items, appliances, and other furniture items that you don’t need any longer, we recommend having a Sayonara Sale and promoting it on social media sites. You can earn some money by selling them. If something isn’t getting sold, you can contact any recycling shop to get rid of it.
If you’ve pets, get their flight booked
If you have fur babies, you should get all their paperwork completed and buy their tickets before you buy your own. It involves checking the animal import requirements of the country you’re moving to and getting an import certificate for them in advance. You may also contact animal travel agencies to get the best piece of advice or do your own research on the internet.
Check your visa
If your visa is expired or about to expire, you will need to visit any nearby immigration office to apply and get a Temporary Visitor Visa. If you don’t, things can take a turn for the worse, landing you in hot water. So, it’s highly advised that you should check your visa to avoid any inconvenience along the way.
Choose the right moving company
There’s no point in hiring an inexperienced moving company. Always look for experienced names stay on the safe side. Working with inexperienced and new service providers can cost you dearly. So, it’s highly advised that you perform your research to find and choose the right moving company in Japan. You can Google their business name to see what others are saying about them or ask your friends or colleagues for their suggestions.
