Often people move and try to take with them allthe stuff accumolated over the years. Well moving to place warmer than at home could cause soe trouble just because of using your old furniture, cockroches just love it in clothes and by cloth covered furniture. Then there are other reasons and little tricks one could use. So here we go:
Real-Estate is cheaper abroad, well
most likely anyway.
There are places where you get houses
for less than US$ 30 000 but who would like to live there.
Apart of that it is not easy to move
The Language for example: How like to
learn a new language?
It is not really difficult but you need
discipline for at least a half year to learn Spanish in the Mexican
case. Or in the Venezuelan case as I live on Margarita Island,
There a several mistakes people make
when moving down to us or other places. Mostly because of the lack of
To go about the move to Venezuela or
any other country abroad many things have to be kept in mind.
Venezuela is a particularly nice
country, it has nice beaches, a world famous waterfall (Angel Falls)
Tabletop mountains and much more.
Unfortunately for the English-speaking
world, the official Language is Spanish. There are many ways to learn
Spanish but no one takes away the burden of vocabulary learning.
Can't be helped, can it?
Moving to Venezuela is quiet easy, once
you decide to do it with little or even better, no furniture, just
with six hold-alls. Let's face it, everything can be bought down
here, especially in times where the Internet removed borders.
It is a great deal of hassle to
organize a container for anyone who is not a long distance hauler.
Should there be any furniture you cannot live without, best way to
get it here is using a professional service and now you need to start
an experience-gaining trip. Which handler is reliable? Itís all for
you to find out.
The same problem arises when you get
here. People have been frauded since the beginning of time but why
you? Itís vital to have a reliable consultant, especially because
youíre not familiar with the way of working, the mentality and the
laws of the country youíre moving to.
The best thing you can do is to do the
same as you do at home. Iíve never understood the desire to move to a
community of your own kind, once you go to another country and I
think I'm not alone. I donít like such communities in my country
and there is no reason why I should like them somewhere else.
People move around carefully in New
York but wander around in shabby areas in Caracas. Sounds a bit
silly, doesn't it? And it is. Why would I behave differently here
than I at home? Whatís different here? Is it because the sun
shines, every day?
One hears stories about trusting
unknown people, helping at an ATM (Automatic Teller Machine), and
afterwards they wonder where their money has gone or their cards
have been exchanged! Would you do that at home?
Others have been convinced to give
credit or money to virtually unknown people, 'cause they are so nice.
Of course theyíll hardly get their money back! Others have
bought houses without checking if the ground is included in the price
and if the supposed owner really is who he/she says he/she is! I
don't know about you but I'd do it when Iím buying property.
I have seen people put all their
belongings in one bag and losing it 'cause muggers could figure out
where everything was. Of course crime exists here, but where doesn't
it? So don't buy a house in a neighborhood you don't know without
getting all the essential information. Another mistake is to play a
rich guy or girl. People talk and down here it is not different. It
is not good anywhere that people, mostly poor, talk about you as
someone with a lot of money. So be careful when you buy things in
your new country start with older stuff and move up.
A few things you should know is the
Visa issue: All about Venezuela.
There are several types of visas and
almost all of the visas we give a helping hand in, are best to be
applied for inside Venezuela as the renewal always takes place where
the visa issued.)
The Visas Spanish: http://www.onidex.gov.ve
Venezuelan Family Relation Visitor
Visitors with Fixed Income (produced
Family Member Visitor
Transit Visa (transit traveler)
In the Venezuelan Site
you'll find information regarding
visas. Once you ask in the consulates you'll find that not everyone
is a real source of information. Youíll find out that youíre
trying to move to a country where most people would like to leave it.
Of course their situation is a lot different as they have less change
to a bright future where we arrive with education, experience and
some money in our pockets.
Another great mistake is to go to a
different country and set up a business not having a clue if the
people would pick up on your idea. Very important is of course to be
able to communicate so no one can actually fool you or rip you off!
Speaking the language and being able to read and understand it is
essential if you want to set up a company, buy property or live in
One place where you can learn it is
