We know it can be difficult to keep in touch with friends and family back home after immigrating to another country, but there are some ways to overcome these difficulties and stay in touch with them.


An effective method is to establish a regular communication schedule, which can be by phone or video call. Social networking and messaging apps are also a great way to share photos and videos and keep up with the latest news from friends and family.

Another way to keep in touch is by exchanging letters and packages, as this can help maintain meaningful personal connections. You can send gifts and souvenirs from your new country that will help you keep in touch with your loved ones.

It is also important to look for communities of people who immigrated to the same city or country. These communities can help you connect with people who have been through the same experience and can offer support and friendship as you adjust. You can join online groups or attend events organized by these communities to meet other expats and make new friends.

In short, keeping in touch with friends and family back home can be difficult, but with a little effort and planning, you can overcome these difficulties and stay in touch with the important people in your life. Whether it's regular phone calls, social media, letters, and emails, there are many ways to keep in touch and continue to be an important part of their lives. Also, don't forget that it's important to give yourself time to adjust to your new environment and enjoy new opportunities and experiences.
