Hello! I too, am planning a move to Northern Ireland mid summer 2015; my son is in high school, and until he is out my boyfriend and I plan on me living in NI for 6 mos out of the year, and the other 6 mos here w/ my son .... Hi Selena! I am reaching out to you because I'm hopeful that 1) you can relate and 2) you actually might be able to help. My boyfriend and I met in 1986 when he traveled to Virginia to train w/ a wrestling coach at my high school. We fell in love, but then he moved back ... and we fell out of touch ... fast forward 30 years and now we are back together - madly in love. We've been together as a couple since the summer of 2013; I've traveled to Northern Ireland where he;s from and lives, and he's traveled here. He has younger elementary aged children, and my son is almost 15. Our plan is for me to live in NI for 6 moths of a year and here in VA for the other 6 mos while my son finishes high school. Our main question is do I apply for a work VISA for my 6 month stays, and then in a few years time, go for the family / fiancee VISA? My main concern is to do it "wrong" and "anger" the Immigration VISA Gods such that I am disallowed to move permanently to the UK with my then husband .... Or do we go for the family VISA straight out of the gate and live as marrieds in separate countries for the next few years? I envision that as a potential tax nightmare??? I wish you luck!!!!

Hi everyone, We are a family of four preparing for a transfer to the UK, Chester area. We have been asked to prepare a proposal of what we want to move, allowances, etc. but have no idea where to start. Any suggestions? Thanks, Crissy

Don't know so much about relocation to the UK BUT one thing to make sure you have in your contract is a relocation back to where you have come from/home town. 3 years down the road and suddenly you may not gave a job and you have to pay your move back is not a good idea - know friends who have been caught out by this :-(

Hi We are moving from Edmonton Canada. The company hasn't done many overseas transfers so has asked us to make a proposal. We aren't really sure what to ask for. Thanks for any help, Crissy

Hi Everyone I've been offered a role based in Canary Wharf. We are two adults and a three year old based in Dubai. We love it in Dubai and have no experience of living in London and are a bit apprehensive about the move. We are keen to know is out the areas we should consider living in. We want something with easy access to canary wharf with a suburban feel. A quiet area with good schools, parks and family friendly facilities. Any suggestions please?
familytolondon replied most recently with:
Hello Ms77, Consider Greenwich across the river. It is a nice borough with nice parks and a lively high street with shops and restaurants. The median monthly rent for a two bedroom property is £1,200 and £1,400 for a three bedroom. For a top end property expect to pay over £3,000. Good luck! Family to London

Get a map of London and a tube map. A good place to start is along tube lines that lead to Canary Wharf. You also have to come up with a budget and what you expect to get with that budget. Think about how much of a commute you're willing yo make.

excederinpm initially posted:
Hi! My name is Charlotte, my boyfriend and I will be moving to London for his job in first quarter 2015 ( sometime in January-March). I am currently in Medical Device Sales in the United States and I am concerned about finding work once we get there. I understand sponsorship is required; I was wondering if anyone had any contacts or information for anyone who is in healthcare in London. My background is medical sales which is a dynamic business regardless of what country, and I would like to stay in the healthcare industry if possible. I appreciate any communication! Thanks
gah26 replied most recently with:
You need a visa before you can move to the UK. You can't look for a job whilst in the UK on a tourist visa. Unless your job is on the shortage occupation list which it isn't, then an employer must prove there is no one who doesn't need visa sponsorship who can do the job. That's a pool of 500 million people as it includes everyone in the EU. The chances of you finding an employer to sponsor you are pretty slim. If you have been living with your boyfriend for at least 2 years in a relationship akin to marriage you might qualify as a dependent on his Tier 2 visa. You will need to prove joint responsibilities like joint tenancy, bank accounts and bills. If that's not the case then your only option is marriage to be a dependent on his visa.
