What is the current weather condition in my destination country?

Check the weather online or through news reports, friends, relatives and colleagues. This will help you prepare what type of clothing should you bring with you. This will also help you condition your mind and body to adjust to your new environment.

Be prepared for a temperature ranging from 40-55 degrees if you are going to the GCC during summer or a temperature as low as minus 10 in Europe, South Korea and Japan.

Bring with you medicines and vitamins that you regularly take or are accustomed to, which are at least good for three months, as these might not be available over the counter in your country of destination. Bring also any medical records or prescriptions for medicines for you.
