Are you thinking of getting a job abroad due to economic problems in the United States? Have you considered moving to the UK where the language barrier is not too great? Here are some tips for moving to the UK:
1. Consider whether you, your spouse or children need an access permit (visa) and / or work permit to get to and work in the country. Apply for a visa and / or work permit for at least 8 weeks before the UK employment period.
When you go to the UK you may need to register with the UK police (depending on your nationality and purpose of the visit).
3. If you are not sure you are in the right place, rent a place for six months before renting a house. If you are a foreigner who does not live in the UK for tax purposes, seek professional advice before making a purchase.
4. If you are going to the UK for more than a few months, it makes sense to open a UK bank account and get at least one debit or credit card in the UK. Requirements for opening an account vary, but you will usually need to fill out an application form and provide proof of identity, such as a passport.
5. If you plan to stay in the UK for more than a year, you may need to obtain a UK driving license. Car insurance is mandatory and if you are planning to import your vehicle to the UK, do some claims research before going to the UK.
6. The first thing you need to do when you come to your home in the UK is to register with a GP. You can register with a family doctor in the private sector or with the state health service. The state provides free medical care funded by the state.
7. For parents with school-age children, the original task is to find schools that may be suitable. The transfer service offers a comprehensive school search service to help you find the schools that suit your needs.
Explore the UK by browsing the internet or reading books to find out about weather, culture, crime rates, currency exchange, and more.
If you decide to move to the UK, be sure to plan accordingly and most importantly, enjoy your time abroad. Health.
