There are so many things to think about when moving abroad to work as an expatriate; the documents you need to bring with you can easily end up at the end of the list.
International Drivers Licence
If you are going to drive when you are abroad you will need an international drivers licence. The only exception is if you have a driving licence from an EU country and you are moving to another EU country where your own licence will be recognised.
Outside of the EU you will need an international licence which you use in addition to your driver’s licence, not instead of it. The Automobile Association in your country of residence will be able to help you with this.
It is worth bringing any important legal documentation you own with you. This could include:
- Birth certificate
- Marriage certificate
- Your will
- Power of attorney
- Income tax records
Medical, dental records and prescriptions
