RENTING AND DRIVING AROUND IN THE UNITED KINGDOM
Although the United Kingdom has inter-connected public transport, it is still a good choice if you have a car to commute around. By far, almost every family in the United Kingdom has a car.
You can also drive your own car especially if you’re planning to drive through the rural roads. It has some of the best scenery but, of course, you have to show proper and valid documents to be able to drive in the country. Similar to other parts of the world, this means that your car has to follow the safety and environmental features set by the British government. Alternatively, you can also rent a car in the UK for somewhere between $23 to $116 per day.
Visa Application for the United Kingdom
Before moving to the United Kingdom, applying for a work visa is a must. It may seem difficult (but not impossible) for expats coming outside the European Union. If you’ve landed a job with one of the many approved companies in the UK, you can opt for a tier 2 general visa around three months before your move. For stays longer than three years, a visa will cost you around £1,220.
Here are some documents needed for a visa application:
- Certificate of sponsorship (from your employer).
- Proof of being paid an “appropriate rate” (around $36,000 a year).
- A bank statement that shows you’ve had £945 in your account for ninety days before your application.
- Your travel history over the past five years.
- Evidence showing you’re capable and allowed to travel.
