The first step is having a passport! If you don’t already have a passport, apply for one NOW. 
Then you can move onto research. Research the country you want to stay in.

  • Do you need a visa to live there? If you do, how do you get a visa? How much does the visa cost? How long can you stay in the country with a visa? Does it allow you to work?

  • Are there job opportunities there that will sponsor your visa and help you with relocation?

  • What is the cost of living in the place? How much money do you need to survive there?  

  • What are the local laws I need to be aware of so I do not end up in jail? <---seriously.

These are the main guiding questions that will start you on your journey and plan for living in your target country.
Beyond that, it's so important to have a community to help you with your research!  So if you haven't yet, we heartily recommend you join our worldwide Break Diving community on this website---we have many others also pursuing the Adventurer - Expat dive from around the world.  We even have people who are from your target country who can give you advice on cultural norms, language, restaurants, and more!
