Make the most of living and working in Edinburgh

Expat living in Edinburgh raises plenty of questions, for instance: ʺWhat are the requirements from British authorities to get a residence permit?”, ʺWhich diseases do I need to have my pet checked for before bringing it along to the UK?ʺ, or ”Who can recommend expat insurance providers in town?”

Finding all this expat information about living and working in Edinburgh takes a lot of time. Our Edinburgh expat guide is there to make your relocation to Edinburgh as easy as possible. Starting with culture and sights to information about local organisations & companies, the guide covers all the different aspects of expat life in Edinburgh.

We certainly do not limit ourselves to Edinburgh, though. Our guide includes many more expat hotspots, with advice ranging from live in London to move to Paris.
