How do I apply for a job for two months from now?

I'm relocating in 2 months and currently doing the job search. How do I handle current job postings which do not specify a start date: apply anyway and state my arrival time (or don't mention it)? Is there anything I can do in the application/interview process to increase the likelihood that an employer might hold a position for me, or how do I broach the subject? Is it worth applying to a job that has a start date earlier than my arrival "just in case"?

There is no possibility of me arriving earlier (unless they paid for a new plane ticket). I of course want to be completely honest with employers, but I also want to avoid my inquiries being dismissed out of hand because dates do not match up.
