With just over half a year to go, you can begin looking for your new home, researching local schools and medical care options, and possibly organizing a pre-move visit to your new country to gather as much information as you can first-hand.

It’s coming down to crunch time. As your move approaches, you should be arranging your pre-move survey with Gosselin, notifying friends, family, employers and schools of your impending move, and organizing financial and insurance matters.
