9 Reasons why the UK must be on your immigration radar

1. Skilled Worker Visa Opportunities

You can acquire a Visa in the UK for working in a variety of occupations, such as being a chief executive of a corporation or a production manager. You also may find construction management, marketing, sales or advertising, and public relations director or manager positions. Finance, hospitality, and restaurant and emergency rescue or law enforcement include some more opportunities. Travel, leisure, sports, healthcare, and more include other sectors that you can work in if you become approved for the UK work Visa.

2. Affordable Healthcare

The National Health Service (NHS) offers healthcare that starts out as free. You can also subsidize the cost of your medication, so it may not cost as much in other countries. UK has also partnered with the European Economic Area (EEA) countries, including Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway. By the way, the UK and these three countries are not a part of the European Union. Anyone visiting can also use the free NHS emergency services when they arrive.

3. Free public education

Students as young as three years old up to age 18 can receive their education in five stages.

This starts with the early years, primary (stages 1 and 2), secondary (stages 3 and 4), and Post-16 education (stage 5). Many of the learning institutions receive state funding, and they prepare students for achieving the International Baccalaureate® (IB), which has a similar weight to a high school diploma in America.

4. A lively pub and music scene

Liverpool still remains number one on the UK music scene list. The Beatles is one classic British rock band that made this city famous. The Zutons, The Wombats or La’s are a few more of many. The Shipping Forecast, Cavern Club, or Bierkeller Liverpool are some places where live bands have played. London comes in at number two for the liveliest music scene. The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Queen, Led Zeppelin, and Elton John are some big names that made this city famous. Popular live band venues include the O2 Arena, The Union Chapel, Brixton Academy, and The Moth Club. Other cities with lively pub and music venues include Manchester, which has featured New Order and The Smiths, and Sheffield, which featured The Human League, Def Leppard, and Arctic Monkeys.

5. A Place for Sports Lovers

Association Football (soccer) by far seems to outweigh in popularity other sports. World Cup tournaments have taken here. Rugby, which can be described as a “rougher” form of American football, is also quite popular in the UK, and so is hockey. Badminton, cricket, and tennis are also popular.

6. Easy Air and Train Access

It’s not uncommon for people to take two-hour flights in and out of UK and EU locations such as Glasgow, London, Manchester, Paris, and Amsterdam. Other places you can quickly travel include Cologne, Geneva or Barcelona. UK visitors and locals also frequently travel by train. In fact, the passenger rail systems in most major cities are more advanced than in other countries, including the U.S. People sometimes even take the train all over Europe instead of flying.

7. Not as Much Snow

Some winter days in the UK are more like autumn than they are in winter. This area only experiences a maximum of approximately 45.4 inches (115.2 centimetres) of snow per year in Aberdeen. Some areas measure as low as 2.1-18.3 inches (5.3-46.4 centimetres) in Tiree, Inner Hebrides, Stornoway, Outer Hebrides, and Edinburgh.

8. Holiday (Vacation) Pay

Apparently, most people would receive up to 5.6 weeks of paid time off regardless of the type of work they do. This includes full-time and part-time positions, and it could include agency or irregular-hour positions. If you plan to work in the UK, you can figure out your estimated paid time off entitled to you by the government if you use this calculator.

9. Purchase Prices Less Confusing

Sales tax (VAT) in the UK is usually included in the purchase price in stores. On invoices and retail websites, you might see figures both with and without tax. This makes life easier when shopping.
