Resettling

How will the children manage?

We like to encourage our clients to keep their children well informed of their relocation plans from the beginning so they have time to adjust to the idea. We also encourage involving them in the planning process and we offer material that will assist children to learn more about Zambia.

What if I have a pet?

Moving away from home not only impacts our family, but also  our Pets. If you decide to bring your beloved four-legged family member with you it is important to discuss this with Simply Relocate Zambia as soon as possible, so that we research and process any importation and quarantine issues.

Simply Relocate Zambia is able to assist with your pet’s transportation and any quarantine boarding or kennelling that may be required upon arrival. We encourage you to also research the regulations for importing pets from your home country to Zambia and understand any requirements for inoculations and quarantine both at destination, and upon repatriation.
