A Journey to Bangkok


Yesterday we reached a milestone in our life. We were reallocated to Thailand. It is Bangkok mainly. I have started working for a big company in Thailand on 1st September 2021. I have begun worked remotely and was expecting to move physically to Bangkok by early September.

However, our plan was adjusted from early September to 10th September yesterday. We had to sort out paperwork, such as the tax clearance, working permit clearance and EPFwithdrawal. It all happened in the same week as our departure to Bangkok. It was a challenge, and it has been an adventure for us.

This is the first time we have moved all together from a country to another country. We were not expecting that it would be this challenging. We sorted out how we sold our car there. We manage to find a shipping company to do the sea freight service to us, visa application, exit clearance from the previous company, settle down the housing tenancy, scheduling the departure to our destination.

Due to this pandemic, the challenges were also unavoidable, such as the PCR Swab test for our pre-departure. We had to pay some amount of money to obtain travel insurance to grant the Certificate of Entry. Alhamdulillah, Allah is the Greatest. His assistance has lead us to our situation today. We arrived at the hotel in the evening and sorted all of the journeys with our two children.

I will try to put each of the processes into detail to share what we did and how we managed to do it. 

Alhamdulillah. We are also grateful how Allah managed everything for us...
