Planning Your Move to Sweden

Postby texkourgan » Fri Jun 28, 2013 11:00 am

Hello and welcome!

Are you planning to move to Sweden and are worried about the moving process? One of the first steps to succeed with your expatriation is to properly prepare yourself for the move.

How should you arrange the move? Can you do-it-yourself with help from friends, or do you need help from a professional international mover?

What do you plan to take and to leave? Will you need all your furniture, or will it be easier/cheaper to buy most things once you have arrived? Are electrical appliances compatible in Sweden?

How can you bring your car? Is it worth it?

What tips and advice can you share with us about your move to Sweden? If you are preparing for your move currently – what questions do you have? If you have already completed a move – what are your tips?

Thanks in advance for sharing!

Before moving to any place,it's important to know certain things about that place.Following are the important points to consider before moving to Sweden :
1.Getting a residency permit/renew it at the Migration Agency.
2.As a new resident,its necessary to get registered at Swedish Tax Agency and obtain a personal identification number.
3.A resident ID card used for opening bank accounts,credit cards etc.
4.Learn Swedish as its the first priority of language to carry out routine activities.

If you're planning to move to Sweden you might want to find a place to rent first.

Check out www.renthia.com - a website with available properties for rent.

Good luck! :)

Finding a rental to stay at in a short notice might be the easiest solution when moving to Sweden.

I'd recommend to check out http://homii.se that helps out to find a place through your social network. Even if you have a small network in Stockholm, Homii looks further in your friends networks in several degrees.

Cheers! :)
