Moving to

The United States

Through decades of experience in relocation, we have formulated the most efficient ways of properly moving you and your family to the United States. We can assist you with a safe and stress-free international move to the land of the free.

Culture

The United States is home to many cultures and a wide variety of ethnic groups, traditions, and values. Americans have traditionally been characterized by a strong work ethic, competitiveness, and individualism, as well as a unifying belief in an “American creed” emphasizing liberty, equality, private property, democracy, rule of law, and a preference for limited government. Americans are extremely charitable by global standards.

Geography

The United States is the world’s third- or fourth-largest nation by total area (land and water), ranking behind Russia and Canada and nearly equal to China.

Economy

The United States is the largest importer of goods and second-largest exporter, though exports per capita are relatively low. The United States has been a leader in technological innovation since the late 19th century and scientific research since the mid-20th century. Methods for producing interchangeable parts were developed by the U.S. War Department by the Federal Armories during the first half of the 19th century. This technology, along with the establishment of a machine tool industry, enabled the U.S. to have large-scale manufacturing of sewing machines, bicycles, and other items in the late 19th century and became known as the American system of manufacturing. Americans collectively possess 29.4% of the world’s total wealth, and Americans make up roughly half of the world’s population of millionaires.

History

The prehistory of the United States started with the arrival of Native Americans before 15,000 BC. Numerous indigenous cultures formed, and many disappeared before 1500. The arrival of Christopher Columbus in the year 1492 started the European colonization of the Americas. Most colonies were formed after 1600, and the early records and writings of John Winthrop make the United States the first nation whose most distant origins are fully recorded.[

Government and politics

The United States is a federal republic of 50 states, a federal district, five territories and several uninhabited island possessions. It is the world’s oldest surviving federation. It is a federal republic and a representative democracy, “in which majority rule is tempered by minority rights protected by law.” The 50 states are the principal administrative divisions in the country. These are subdivided into counties or county equivalents and further divided into municipalities. The District of Columbia is a federal district that contains the capital of the United States, Washington, D.C. The states and the District of Columbia choose the president of the United States.

For entry into most countries, on a long-term or permanent basis, it will be necessary to have the appropriate Visa and passport requirements. You should contact the Consulate of the country to which you are relocating to ensure that your documentation is in order, and that entry of both yourself and your goods is allowed. Some countries apply strict regulations to the importing your household effects and heavy financial penalties can be applied if the appropriate Visa’s or work permits are not in place. Overseas Moving Scene cannot advise you in respect of immigration and the Consular Representative should be equipped to advise you of all documentary requirements and how to apply for appropriate Visa’s and work permits.

The varied sizes, shapes and structures of household furniture create inherent risks, and, despite our special packing materials and careful handling by our staff, these risks cannot be fully eliminated. Overseas Moving Scene has a limited liability policy which can be extended to cover wider forms of liability if required.
