Compared to domestic relocation, relocating globally is a whole different ball game. We dispel the top 5 myths associated with relocating internationally.

Dispelling 5 Common Myths of International Relocation

  1. International Relocation Dispelling 5 Common Myths WHR Group
  2. YOU DON’T NEED A WORK VISA IF YOU’RE GOING TO A COUNTRY FOR LESS THAN 30 DAYS 1.
  3. If you are going to perform productive work for an employer in a country where you are not eligible to work, then, regardless of the time spent, most countries will require you to obtain a work visa.
  4. While certain business trips are permitted, workers cannot technically work (exchange physical or mental labor for money) without a work visa
  5. ONCE YOUR ORGANIZATION APPROVES YOUR NEW POSITION IN THE NEW COUNTRY, IT’S OK TO GO THERE IMMEDIATELY AND START WORKING 2.
  6. Organizational approval of your new position is only half the battle. A work visa approval grants you the permission to begin work in a new country immediately.
  7. Keep in mind... Visa approval process varies by country Can take weeks to months before receiving your visa!
  8. "I’LL BE ABLE TO GET A VERY SIMILAR HOME IN THE NEW LOCATION" 3.
  9. A different location means different standards, including what is important in a home: Outdoor spaces versus larger kitchens Smaller everything in comparison to U.S. “norms” Housing issues vary around the world as economic standing, living conditions, and cultural norms come into play
  10. "EVERYONE SPEAKS ENGLISH, SO IT WILL BE AN EASY TRANSITION" 4.
  11. A common misconception is that English is the only language you need to know, wherever you travel.
  12. Besides being wildly presumptive, it’s also completely untrue. Not everyone in every country speaks English, let alone fluently. [Plus, learning a new language opens up other doors for embracing a new culture]
  13. EXPATRIATES COMING TO THE US DON’T NEED CULTURAL TRAINING 5.
  14. Yet another misconception is that expats coming to the US do not need cultural training. But, in fact, the US is a very different culture, and visitors are often surprised about the differences they were not expecting!
