1. Get to Know the Region

Chances are you’ll have already visited the region you intend to move to, but how well have you got to know it? Trust us when we say the more you know about Gothenburg and its surroundings, the more excited you’ll be to start a fresh life in Sweden!

2. Seasons and Public Holidays

Ask the locals and they’ll tell you Gothenburg (and much of the country in general) is at its most beautiful in the spring time. For the smoothest and most enjoyable transition possible therefore, it’s worth getting to know both the seasons and the most important regional/national holidays and celebrations alike.


3. Look for Work

You could begin searching for work when you arrive, but there’s really nothing to stop you getting a head start way before you even set off. It’s also advisable to look into important aspects of your move like work permits, salaries and so on, which in some instances vary from one region to the next.

4. Prepare for All Seasons

As the Swedish often say: “there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing”. Meaning that the locals around Gothenburg aren’t in the habit of using the weather as an excuse to cancel plans and stay indoors. To get the very most out of your new home, it’s best to be prepared for all seasons at all times!

5. Compare Schools

For families relocating with children and/or teenagers, it’s of the utmost importance to familiarise yourself with the Swedish educational system ahead of time. You also need to put plenty of time to one side to research and consider the local schools, colleges and universities in your vicinity.

“I just wanted to say thank you for organising our move to Sweden. We are yet to unpack everything but was great to have our things delivered the day after my arrival. A very special thanks to Tomas and Liam who delivered.
They worked so hard carrying, sometimes as the rain was pouring down and it was warm and sticky. Both very young men, polite and professional and great advertisers for Schepens. Everyone we’ve been in contact with from Schepens has been very helpful. Best regards from Mona – London to Sweden”

6. Consider Healthcare Options

The standard healthcare system in Sweden is outstanding, but there are also plenty of private options you may wish to consider. Hence this being another important aspect of your new life to look into – ideally before your new life begins!

7. Get Social

Last but not least, there are countless forums and social media groups dedicated specifically to those looking to embrace the culture of Gothenburg and its surroundings. What’s more, getting involved in these kinds of groups can be a great way of making new friends and contacts before you even touch down. So whether simply looking to learn more about the area or make it easier to meet the locals, this is a great way of making it happen!
