Move or Stay, Following Your Heart to Another Country

December 29, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 92

So you went on a holiday to Thailand and fell in love with the place for one reason or another, usually this reason has to do with relationships, you think how can we be together? Should I bring her to be with me here in my own country, or should I move there, the decision is hard and there are many things to consider along the way.

Lets look at the first option, bring your new found love to live in you own country, first there is the issue of visas to deal with, depending on which part of the world you come from it can be very hard, for instance with Australia there can be a 6 month wait whilst the visa is considered and the applicant must stay in their own country whilst the visa is under consideration. There are many migration agents and forums that can assist you with this process and how to be prepared and get the visa without too much trouble.

The next thing to consider that many do not understand is that bringing someone from another country to reside where you live will change that person beliefs and outlook and this can end up causing break ups in relationships as the change can turn the person into something different to what you initially fell in love with, so be prepared, it won't happen quickly but over a few years they will learn and adapt to the country they are residing in and act different.

The second option is moving to their country to be with them, now this means giving up a lot on your part and can create unwanted stress in a relationship as you will be in an environment that is vastly different to your own country. First you will be leaving your family and friends behind, this may seem easy at first but when you are thrown into an environment where not many speak your language, that daily interaction can be missed and also create stress in the relationship, so things like Skype and video calls can help a bit in stimulating that interaction, but it is best to make new friends and find people who can help fill that gap in conversation.

Getting a visa is not hard if you plan to buy or establish a business in Thailand, but what skills do you have at running a business, if you have only been an employee all your life seek assistance from a business advisor who can help you with planning and deciding on what to purchase and how much it can be expected to make as well as how much you will need not only to purchase the business but operate it until it starts clearing a profit, always remember though, you are moving there and will be running a business, treat it as such, it is not a holiday, if you treat it like this you will fail and end up running out of funds and having to find work, which will more than likely bring you back home as finding jobs in a foreign country is not easy.

So now you have some views of both options you can try to decide what to do, it can be a very rewarding step if you stick to your guns and follow through with things, if you be strong and plan things and be ready for any of the above issues before they happen then you will be much better prepared for a good relationship.
