Moving to Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland is loosely termed ‘province’ of the United Kingdom comprised of six northern counties in Ireland with a population of 1.8 million people. Belfast is the capital city of Northern Ireland and home to one third of the population in N. Ireland. The territory is currently still considered a territory of the United Kingdom and the British pound is its main currency. Even though the Northern territory has not officially been handed over to the Republic of Ireland, peace and economic stability have risen greatly since 2006.
The climate of Ireland as a whole is Oceanic and kept steady year around by the Gulf Stream that blows across Ireland making it mild and free from sea ice during the winter. The average daily temperature in the winter is between 4°C- 7°C, it generally rains often but never has extreme weather like tornadoes or hurricanes or snowy conditions. It can freeze quit often in the winter from cold air conditions but almost never snows. The summers are mild to warm and have dryer pleasant conditions.
Rainfall is quite noticeable in Ireland and you can expect to see anywhere between 151 to 225 wet days out of the year with an average of 3 hours of sunlight per day in the North. To deal with the wet grey conditions, people in Ireland are quite friendly and social. The Irish love anything that includes getting out and joining friends and neighbors such as having a drink at the local pub, attending a festival or joining a sporting club or interest group helps to get their mind off the weather. It might be why there are no shortages of golf courses or pubs in Ireland.

Visa requirements for Northern Ireland
Getting a long term visa for Northern Ireland is a bit tricky depending on where you are coming from. If you are moving from the UK or European Union then no problem, you will not need a residence visa. Ireland and the United Kingdom are European Union Member and EU citizens are free to travel and work within the European Union without a visa.
If you are coming from a non EU land or the UK and need to apply for a longer term visa or work permit to Northern Ireland, then you need to request a visa through the visa and immigration office in the United Kingdom. I would advise considering a 3 party visa service to help process your visa as the rules have changed recently.
