International Moving Information For Moving To Denmark

Jul 25, 2008
Denmark, an ancient land founded by Vikings, combines the modern technology of the world today with the quaint feel of a rustic village. The city of Copenhagen, because of expanding world trade and its position as Northern Europe's largest domestic market, has become a popular destination for international moving. Connected to Malmo, Sweden by the Oresund Bridge, this comfortable city is a pleasant place to live and a good location for doing business in Europe.

To begin the international moving process you should first shop around for a reputable international moving company or relocation expert. Moving to another country isn't like going a few streets or even towns away. Personal belongings must be packed in a certain way, inventoried for inspection by customs officials, and transported safely by sea or air if you are going to another continent. International moving companies are knowledgeable and experienced in all of these areas and can make your move headache free.

The national language of Denmark is Danish and their local currency is called the Krone (Crown). You will find that English and other languages are spoken frequently there but it's always a good idea when engaging in international moving to have at least a basic command of the national language. Denmark is a member of the European Union so Euros are accepted in many business establishments but they are not the preferred currency.

A passport is always required when international moving takes place. Other entry requirements involve a complete medical exam and the payment of import taxes on your belongings. If your move is temporary, retain your original citizenship from your native land and find out where your embassy is located. The American Embassy in Copenhagen is at Dag Hammarskjolds Alle 24, DK-2100 Kobenhavn 0. The country code for telephone calls is 45 and there is regular internet access available throughout the country. Contact your local service providers before you move and ask if your cell phone and internet can be moved along with you.

An international moving experience can be an exciting adventure or a stressful nightmare. Hiring a professional to help you and gathering some information about your destination ahead of time can make it a pleasant and rewarding undertaking. International moving can expand your business, personal and educational boundaries and provide you with memories that last a lifetime. Denmark was the birthplace and home of Hans Christian Anderson and the setting for the Shakespearean play Hamlet. Anderson was a success in his own lifetime and Hamlet was a tragedy. Your international moving experience could be either. If you do it right with some professional help you'll reap the rewards.

For additional information on international moving and the country of Denmark you can look online or contact a local travel agency. The United States Post Office has passport information and applications and you can contact the United States Customs Agency for information on import taxes and regulations. An international moving company can provide you with packing and shipping tips and entry requirements for Denmark.
