Settling in—Supporting your international employee transition in a new location

Moving into a new home is always daunting. There is a huge number of tasks and chores to do before you begin settling in. When your employees are relocating, you can engage Santa Fe’s team to help them. We provide timely and efficient assistance with practical matters, which means so much when people adjust to a new environment.
A relocating employee has to be compliant with the immigration requirements and all local regulations of the destination location. You can configure our comprehensive menu of Settling in services to meet your policy requirements, location-specific requirements and your assignees’ needs. The programme is typically delivered as a 1- or 2-days programme and may include some or all of the following:

Pick from the following Settling in options 

  • Comprehensive and interactive online session with a destination consultant
  • General location briefing
  • Information on local registration requirements and accompanied or unaccompanied support
  • Transport information, driving license exchange requirements, car registration requirements, parking permits, etc.
  • Information and best practice on setting up your utility bills, TV & Internet, mobile phone setup, and broadcast taxes, postal services and mailbox registration
  • Health care briefing and information on medical facilities, registration with doctors
  • Insurance briefing, car and property insurances
  • Information on transport, shopping, restaurants, leisure activities, cultural life, traditions, holidays
  • Bank account opening, accompanied or unaccompanied, depending on the location
  • Basic local registration (do not include immigration compliance)
  • Customised e-welcome pack


  • Supports the family, so that the assignee can focus on their new role 
  • Flexible and built around your assignee’s needs 
  • Reduces anxiety and the time it takes to settle in 
  • Integrates with the home search service 
  • Reduces costs through consulting

Our support continues beyond the settling-in period. Santa Fe offers your employees support and information whenever needed for the duration of their assignment.

Our team provide advice and full support with these local registration procedures where requested so your relocating employee remains compliant with all local regulations.
