The United Kingdom is one of the most attractive destinations for expatriates; encompassing England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. UK is full of historic and cultural attractions, diverse landscapes, major sporting events, city nightlife venues, and an abundance of quality restaurants and eateries specialising in a variety of local and exotic flavours. With its proximity to the rest of Europe, there are no shortage of reasons for moving to the UK.
The dynamic ethnic tapestry seen in the UK today has been a result of the country’s diverse economy, liberal immigration policies and links with the commonwealth. In recent years however, there has been a toughening of immigration policies that have resulted in specialist skilled expats being given priority. For more information on work visa requirements, visit the UK Immigration and Visa website.
The UK Government’s Home Office is also responsible for monitoring and managing the import of personal belongings to the UK and has some restrictions in place that should be checked prior relocating.
The United Kingdom, particularly London, England, is known for its high cost of living. However, depending on employment and spending decisions, there are plenty of opportunities to maintain a comfortable lifestyle. Despite the impact of the global economic downturn, the UK has started to make steady economic growth. The British Pound (GBP) is the highest valued among the major world currencies and one of the most commonly converted.
To make your transition simpler, Grace has partnered with OzForex to provide you with fee free, competitive and convenient foreign exchange solutions.
