There is a lot to do before the adventure can begin, and sometimes it’s hard to figure out where to begin. Dreams Abroad hopes to provide some insight on how to prepare for predeparture before departing for your next big adventure.

Preparing for your departure can mean many different things for many different people. Some people may be about to depart for a week long vacation and are looking up some quick tips! However, there are others who are looking to make long-term commitments to new, foreign homes. Learn how travelers in your same situation prepared for similar trips by reading through our authors’ personal experiences and advice.

Planning on Traveling Abroad?

Predeparture, especially in the case of those planning to go abroad long-term, is a process that can take several days, if not months! Applying for visas, passports, work permits, finding housing, and more are all things that should be considered before going abroad to your new home. It can be challenging if you’re not sure what to expect. Our authors provide their own experiences of doing the exact same things that you may find yourself to be involved with. While it may not be necessarily challenging figuring out what you need, figuring out how to do it is an entirely different story.

Read our predeparture articles in order to figure out what our authors did to prepare for their journeys. These stories give our readers insight as to what to expect while preparing to travel abroad. While this isn’t necessarily the most glamorous part of traveling, it is certainly one of the most important aspects. Knowing what to expect while preparing can make all the difference. Preparing for your departure does not have to be a dreaded chore, especially if you’ve already gained some insight from our authors’ personal experiences.
