Working and living in the UK – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in the UK requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of British expat life. Living abroad in the UK raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to the UK?ʺ, ʺAm I automatically entitled to NHS insurance and medical care?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in London should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the British municipality in Glasgow?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in UK is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for the UK aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in the United Kingdom. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from education and children, to local organisations & companies or culture and sights, up to housing & household. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺWhich diseases do I need to have my pet checked for before bringing it along to the UK?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.

Of course, InterNations is active far beyond UK. Please feel free to explore our expatriate guide on living in Portugal or living in Malaysia.
