Prior to my permanent move to the United States, I had explored the “land of the free and the home of the brave” on 12 occasions, traversing over 10 different states. The profound conviction grew within me that this was the ideal place for my eventual retirement and permanent residence. It is advisable, if feasible, to thoroughly acquaint oneself with a prospective country before making the significant decision to immigrate there.

Acquainting oneself with a prospective country before deciding to immigrate is advisable for several reasons. 

Firstly, it allows you to gain a comprehensive understanding of the country’s culture, lifestyle, and societal norms. This helps in making an informed decision about whether your values align with those of the new country.

Secondly, exploring the local job market, cost of living, and available opportunities helps you assess the feasibility of a successful transition and ensures you’re financially prepared for the move.

Furthermore, experiencing the country firsthand helps you anticipate potential challenges, such as language barriers or cultural adjustments, allowing you to better prepare for them.

Lastly, by spending time in the country before immigrating, you can build connections, establish a support network, and create a smoother transition into your new life. This level of familiarity ultimately aids in making a well-considered and confident decision about permanently relocating.
