Timeline Planning Service
Don’t miss any important to-dos before, during, or after your move with your personalized moving checklist!
Think you're ready to move abroad? Think again!
While you may believe all you have to do is throw your clothes into a suitcase and jump on a plane, the reality is that there are many more difficult decisions and challenges for you to overcome in your journey abroad. It can be overwhelming to try to stay on top of everything, not to mention figuring out where to start!
We're here to help
As lifelong expats, we have been through the process of moving across the world many times already. We know the stress of making sure that we have done everything we need to do before leaving our homes, during the move, and then after arriving in a brand new country.
To take this burden off your shoulders, we will compile the most important steps for you to take in your transition to life abroad in a single spreadsheet so you can mark them off as you complete them.

Frequently Asked Questions
The Timeline Planning service is essential for everyone wanting to move abroad, no matter where they are from and where they want to go. In addition to expats moving to a specific country, the service is also designed for digital nomads who want to know what to do before and after leaving their home country. We’ll adjust the content of the spreadsheet according to your situation.
Free checklists 1) leave out many important steps, 2) are not specific to where you are moving to, 3) are not specific to your situation, and 4) are not interactive. Rather than relying on unhelpful PDFs, use our personalized interactive checklist to stay on track for your next move abroad.
We’ve already helped many clients around the world to plan their journeys abroad with the Timeline Planning service. We created this service because we know how anxious we were that we’d forgotten to do something when moving abroad, and so we want to help you avoid losing your time, money, and peace of mind as your moving date approaches.
Because our services do not include any bespoke additions to the comprehensive templates we’ve already built, we personalize this service by only including the tasks that are necessary for you based on your citizenship(s), the country you’re moving to, whether you have school-aged children or pets, etc. Before starting work on the deliverable, we’ll send you a questionnaire so that we can tailor it to your unique situation.
We will not make changes to the content of the spreadsheet after it is delivered to you, but you can change it on your own as you see fit. You can change things like the moving date and the number of days used to calculate the suggested completion dates in the sheet and it will update automatically.
Yes, the workbook includes two tabs for your timeline – one with a simplified view and another with a detailed view. The detailed view includes all the information displayed in the simplified view as well as the in-depth Details and Relevant Websites columns. You can use each tab as much or as little as you like to prepare for your move!
Not all tasks will be specific to your situation or location. There are many tasks in the spreadsheet that have been adjusted to provide location-specific information – these tasks have “Local” in the “Category” column. There are also tasks in the spreadsheet that are not adjusted for location-specific information – these tasks have “General” in the “Category” column.
The number of steps depends on the specific situations of each client, but our timelines usually have between 60-80 steps in total, so the content is very thorough.
Yes, we’ll send you an in-depth video explaining how the spreadsheet works and will be available to answer any remaining questions you have via email.
Just let us know and we’ll be happy to answer it for you!
