What to bear in mind when relocating during the pandemic.



For the last year, most of us have been inside our homes, leaving a couple of times a week to get groceries or to go and exercise. However, the reality for some people has been very different. We now live in a world where lots of people are working from home and realising that their surroundings are in need of an update, and so moving to a new house, and possibly a new country altogether, has become a very popular choice in a very uncertain time. It is not as easy as it once was to move, and there are a few things to take into account before taking the plunge.


Is relocation possible during a Pandemic?

One thing to think about is that moving is likely to be more expensive during this time because of the lack of open travel corridors, and the necessity to obtain special permits in some countries, meaning it is important to plan your relocation well in advance and ensure you have sufficient funds. That is why hiring the right firm to help and assess you with the process is essential.


Another thing to bear in mind is the comparatively small job market in the current climate. Moving abroad might mean having to leave a job, and so it is important to ensure that you have another role lined up in the country or city you are planning to relocate to.


Some moving is essential, and it is clear that relocations cannot simply stop because of the pandemic. Finding the right firm who is going to help you expedited paperwork and permits it’s imperative.


Health is a topic that underlies almost everything happening in the world at the moment. Many countries in LATAM are already vaccinating such as Chile or Uruguay. It is also crucial to research and understand how the healthcare system works, and whether or not it is free. For instance, Argentina has an impressive free health care system. In whatever state the world finds itself, this is always going to be important to consider the availability of healthcare.


In today’s world, relocation is limited and although there are numerous factors inhibiting movement it is still possible. The pandemic presents a unique situation and means research and safety are more important than ever. So to answer the question: Is relocation possible? The answer is yes, relocation it is still possible and at Creimerman we can help you achieve it.
