Expats in the UK

So, you've decided to move to the UK.

That's the easy part. Now, you've got to apply for a visa, open a UK bank account and think about where you'll live and work in London. Luckily, you're not the first Australian, New Zealander or South African to move to London, and most of us at TNT have been in your shoes.

We can offer advice on finding a doctor, insurance, transport, and more. We also have tips to bolster your budget, including how to claim a tax refund and National Insurance rebate. Good stuff.
