As well as international health insurance, there are many other things expatriates should think about when relocating abroad.
Crown Relocations senior move manager Kimberly Milhouse recommended that people research local schools, job opportunities and places to live when planning to expatriate.
She also advised people to consider other issues they would generally need to set up when moving house, such as phone lines, utilities and bank accounts.
"The more time you can spend on research, the better," the specialist remarked.
Ms Millhouse highlighted the importance of considering international healthcare needs.
She advised people to look into the cost of this expense, stating: "Take out health insurance if appropriate to cover private medical and dental treatment, as well as medical repatriation."
Investigating a country thoroughly beforehand can "pay dividends" in the future when the expatriate is making a visa application and can help the individual avoid common pitfalls and mistakes, the expert declared.
A Place in the Sun Magazine editor Liz Rowlinson recently claimed people moving to a foreign country can save significant sums of money by forward buying the overseas currency at a favourable rate.
