Arriving in America
In order for your shipment to clear through U.S. Customs, you will need to complete some forms. If you click the link to the right, you will be led to our Customs Forms page where you will find the necessary forms and instructions on how to fill out.
Obtain a social security number from the local social security office. You will need this number for most official forms as well as opening a bank account. All members of your family need a number.
Driving in the U.S.A.
You will be required to obtain a U.S. driving license and depending on what state you are planning on residing in will depend on how long you will be allowed to drive on an international driving permit. To obtain a U.S. driving license you will be required to take a driving test, which will involve a multiple-choice computer-driven test and being able to drive, park, and stop a car. A U.S. driving license also acts as your ID here in the states.
Medical Services/Health Insurance
Get your medical health insurance sorted out as soon as possible and register with a local doctor, dentist, and any other specialist you may require. Click the link to the right to learn more.
If you are moving to a major city you can transfer your bank account and set up a new account or maintain the same account if your bank has offices here in the U.S. If however, you are moving to a not so major city then you will have to open up an account with a local bank. It is also worth noting that you cannot open a bank account without a social security number so this must be obtained from the local social security office first.
