Hi Danni,

I guess the answer is, it depends

Certainly, a move overseas can offer new opportunities, lifestyles, careers and more. Leave your past behind and maybe reinvent yourself! But there can be a downside – if you have a close family, you may miss them.

You should ask yourself these key questions;

  • If you move overseas, what will be impact? negatives and positives
  • Is your vision of what it will be like actually achievable? TV programmes don’t really show the down side
  • Why are you moving? A move overseas may not necessarily solve your problems
  • Saying goodbye to family and friends? One of the most common reasons for people returning home!

I hope these thoughts help you decide whether a move overseas is right for you and you join the thousands that start a new life overseas every year.
