Why move to the UK?

Everyone has a different personal reason for moving to the UK. Work, a relationship, more space. The most common reasons to move or emigrate to the United Kingdom are summarized as follows:

  • An unique British lifestyle
  • The exciting cities
  • Stationing as an expat for an international company in, for example, London
  • A beautiful nature
  • The rich English culture
  • Study at the University of Cambridge or Oxford

The United Kingdom can therefore be an interesting country to move to.

Emigrate to United Kingdom

A few things to take into account:

  • For a stay of longer than 6 months, a residence permit is required for Dutch citizens who want to emigrate to the UK.
  • Applying for a National Insurance number (NI number) is then also necessary. This allows you to arrange, for example, the opening of your bank account
  • If you are moving to the UK to work, you will probably need a work permit depending on the length of work and type of work

How much does moving to the UK cost?

Every move is tailor-made. The answer to the question is different for every move to the UK. For example, emigrating to the United Kingdom is a different approach than moving to the United Kingdom. Your specific wishes, desired dates for your move to the United Kingdom, unloading location and loading location also play a role. Are you moving to the heart of the city? Then, for example, costs for parking permits will be added.
