Things to look out for if you are moving to Hungary from overseas
Moving from overseas to Hungary: if you are certain, prepare carefully and keep these expert tips in mind!
#1 Take only what you are emotionally attached to!
We know that it’s often hard to part with even one piece of furniture, but when moving internationally it’s simply not worth it to lug your entire living room across countries. It can be a financial disaster, so be selective! Keep an eye out for anything that you would never get anywhere else (family heirlooms or unobtainable items), and leave behind all the stuff that can be easily replaced!
#2 Think about the administration of your children in time!
To avoid last minute headaches, get the documents your children need before moving from overseas to Hungary. For example, make sure their papers are valid and check what documents you will need to enrol in the new nursery or school.
Also, if you are a Hungarian citizen and you want to return home (but your child was born abroad), you should think about registering your child in your home country. It is a very long process – we have spoken!
#3 Find out more about customs clearance!
Before moving from overseas to Hungary, it is a good idea to put a lot of effort into gathering information about customs clearance. Yes, mainly for financial reasons, but you can’t get away with the administrative part either. If you need help, feel free to contact us!
