Situated on the River Thames in the south east of England, London is famous for a number of English icons. These include the Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace and Wembley Stadium. London is also home to four world heritage sites including the Tower of London. The London Underground system is the oldest underground railway network in the world.

If you are a European Union National you do not need to get a visa to live in the UK. If you have family members from non- EU countries then you need have suficient documentation of being an EU national living in Europe.

You must prove that you are exercising Treaty rights by being:

  • employed or self-employed
  • studying
  • economically self- sufficient
  • job seeking
  • retired
  • have stopped working in the UK due to a permanent incapacity

Immigration visas are available under the following categories:

  • Tier 4 – students
  • Tier 5 – temporary workers

Visa requirements and regulations for approvals are constantly being reviewed and amended. With any type of international move, it is always a good idea to check with your local embassy to ensure the visa requirements and check for the latest information regarding travel and changes

Employment in London

The size and location of London make it a central hub for UK, European and global businesses. Many major companies have head offices located in or close to London across all areas such as finance, insurance, government and more.

It is reported that there is a skilled workers shortage in London, with the occupational areas of engineering, medical practitioners, dentists, nurses, scientists and teachers being some of the main areas of shortages.

Cost of living in London

As with most major cities, the cost of living in London is one of the most expensive in the country. As with any type of property purchase or hire, the price you pay is very much dependent on exactly where you are living, the size and type of home and the condition of the property.

London is one of the most expensive places to live in the UK. However, salaries and job opportunities are also generally higher. Some of the popular areas for expats include Shepherd’s Bush, Notting Hill, Camden and St John’s Wood. No matter where you choose to live, your main concern in addition to the price, will include the safety of the area, along with the proximity to amenities such as public transport and other facilities.
