Visa

The process of applying for a UK visa  depends on your home country, which visa you are trying to get, and the country in which you are currently living. You can access the website at ukvisas.gov.uk, to get information about different types of visas, how to file an application, and supporting documents you may need to acquire for the visa process.

Accommodation

For the accommodation in the UK, find an estate agent can save you a lot of time. However, you may not get the best deal as they usually charge you certain amount of administration fee. Another way to find accommodation in the UK is via Loot, a classified ads newspaper, which also has its own website and regularly advertises property. In general, the Internet is a good source, you may find websites like Gumtree catering for the taste and budget.

Driving

People drive on the right-hand side of the road in most of the countries, but that’s ot the case in the UK. British people drive on the left side, and the steering wheel of British cars is on the right.

Other than that, there are no obstacles to drive in the UK as long as you are over 17 years old and have a valid driving license. While living in the UK, a driving license issued in your former country of residence only remains valid for up to three years (EU/EEA countries) or 12 months (other countries). At the end of this period, you´ll need to get a British license (EU/EEA countries) or a provisional license and pass a driving test (other countries).
