As well as taking out expatriate medical insurance, there are a number of other considerations people must make when relocating abroad.
According to Crown Relocations senior move manager Kimberley Millhouse, people ought to leave "plenty of time" to prepare important documentation, such as custom forms, passports and visas.
International health insurance forms, as well as legal and medical records, must be kept in an accessible and safe place, she added, noting: "Organisation is the key to a successful relocation."
Some people may wish to consider taking part in intercultural training, with the specialist arguing this can make it much easier for a new arrival to fit in to a foreign country.
It will also provide them with a "true understanding" of the country's environment and culture, Ms Millhouse remarked.
Recently, she advised people to consider the tax obligations they may have in the country they are leaving and to look into pensions and other funding options to ensure they are accessible in their new home.
