Relocation Services

Upstate International’s Relocation Program is designed to help individuals and families relocating to the Upstate, especially those coming from international locations. The move to a new country can be stressful and overwhelming. Having qualified assistance eases the strain of the relocation process, increases the efficiency and effectiveness of the settling in process, and adds to the excitement and joy of new adventures.

Our program offers coordination and guidance to those who may need help with social security and licensing, utilities, schools, banking, and more. We can assist you with where to go, whom to contact, and proper documentation. Services are tailored to the individual family’s needs. The extent of the assistance varies from a few hours to several days.

Services provided by our relocation specialist include:

  • Obtaining a Social Security Number
  • Obtaining a Driver’s License
  • Automobile Licensing and Registration
  • Setting up Utilities (gas/electric/water/cable)
  • School Tours and Registration
  • Selecting and Establishing a Bank Account

In addition, we can take your family on a tour of the local area, pointing out shopping locations, specialty stores, recreational facilities, museums and libraries, parks, post offices, entertainment venues, medical facilities, and governmental offices.
