Members assist Members in the UK Expat Forums

Our trust-based community was developed to help expatriates in the United Kingdom swap suggestions and advice on all expat-relevant enquiries, e.g., ʺAm I automatically entitled to NHS insurance and medical care?ʺ or ʺWhich diseases do I need to have my pet checked for before bringing it along to the UK?ʺ. In a community that’s all about expat living in the UK, from roast beef to various bank holidays, the participants of the expat forum UK can find fellow expats and internationally minded locals to receive trustworthy and up-to-date responses. On the InterNations Expat Forum for the UK, there will always be another expat member to make life abroad easier.

From expat insurance to medical precautions: The Expat Forum UK leaves no Question unanswered

If you require even more information on expat topics like education and children in London or culture and sights in Glasgow, you could also browse our UK Expat Guide, another useful resource in addition to the expat forums. Moreover, in our World Forum you can talk about international politics, culture shock, third-culture kids and other general expat issues. However, for expat assistance on all local matters - from expat insurance to medical precautions - just join the InterNations UK expat forums.
