What You Need to Do Before Moving to Thailand

Before you move to Thailand, check the following information that may help you kick start your moving process.

Living Costs

In Thailand, the cost of living is quite low. However, establishing a strategy is a good thing to do before you move. How much can you afford for accommodation and food? How much do you have to spend and save? Put these expenses up and add 10% more to your monthly budget.


Thai visas are fairly complicated. From understanding which visa you should get to actually applying for the visa, make sure you do your research.

Place to Live

There are various different options when it comes to living in Thailand. The south is perfect if you like the beach. But if you like to live near valleys and mountains, then you should choose the north. Central Thailand is where the capital city, Bangkok, is located. It’s busy, but it has plenty of entertainment options. There’s a wide range of locations you can choose from, so give yourself some time to think about it.


You may get regular travel insurance if you are staying for a short period of time. However, you may want to check other options than regular travel insurance, such as health insurance covering Thailand, if you want to move to the country. Remember, wherever you are, health is still number one.
