Every one of us knows, or know of, at least one individual that has packed up and relocated to another country.
But how do you know if Immigration is for you? How can you know in advance that you'll be happy in your new home country? The thing is, you'll never know for sure, but there are a few questions you should ask yourself before you consider packing up all your stuff and moving halfway across the globe.
When thinking about immigrating abroad, it is essential to keep a few things in mind, like
● What are the official spoken languages of that country?
● Is my language proficiency good enough to communicate in a working environment?
● What is the ethnic contrast between my birth country and of that country?
● Are my skills sought after in that country?
● Is my resume adjusted for that country?
● Do I have enough funds to afford the move?
● Will I have sufficient funds to settle and become established?
● How will my loved ones adjust?
● Can I become accustomed to the weather?
● Will I become used to the laws of that country?
● Can I take my pets with?
These questions are important when considering immigrating to South Africa. First, you should make sure you will meet the criteria under one of the eligible immigration categories. You should be suspicious of any organisation who claims you will be eligible before even going over your certification and work history.
Secondly, you need to be sure you are likely to adapt in that country and also flourish in a working environment. A significant aspect of this success is to be proficient in the local language. This consists of reading, writing, listening and speaking. SMS language, which has gained popularity with several demographics is not accepted in business interaction or on a resume. With this type of vocabulary, people will instantly get the wrong impression of you and your professional abilities.
Thirdly, any move can be traumatic and challenging. Relocating abroad can be incredibly stressful for everyone involved, in particular, family members. The lifestyle you may be familiar within your home country might not be one that you can sustain in a new country as a result of exchange rates and cost of living. It is essential to keep each of these factors under consideration and make an informed decision before rushing into any immigration decisions.
