Can I Move to Sweden Whilst I’m in a UK Debt Relief Order?

“Dear Jon,

I am in a debt relief order at the moment. I am thinking of moving to Sweden in the summer, whilst I am still in the DRO.

If I move to another country and get a job whilst still in the DRO, will I have to repay the debts I owe from there?

There are no travel restrictions whilst in a DRO, however, if your income or circumstance changes during the period of the DRO, you are required to report this to the Official Receiver.

If your income changes enough that you could contribute something to the debts, the OR could revoke your DRO and allow you to enter into some other payment arrangement. As you would be out of the UK, a debt management plan could be an option.

I hope this helps.
