Hi i am from NY

New to Forum. Based in london


I am Patty from Guatemala. I live in England now and I help people settle here. At the BME Network in Weston-super-Mare we give free English lessons and help people find work and access services.

Specially if you are from a tropical country like myself, we aim to help people to learn how to use heaters and eat seasonally. Where is so much stuff different in England and the culture is important to know (have you heard about the invisible queue at the pub?)

I'm a french guy who live currently in Normandy.

Hi fahad here living in leeds

My name is Kim Mollitor...recently became engaged to a native of the Liverpool he is not in a financial position to support us both I don't wish to relocate without a job in place..having a difficult time navigating visas and other immigration issues regarding marriage requirements...any and all advice would be greatly appreciated..

Hi Kim and welcome to the Forum. :)

The UK has placed restrictions on the ability on non EU passport holders coming to live and work there.  There is a list of "shortage occupations" on the UK Government website; this link will take you there.  If you fit into any of those and can find a job where they are willing to sponsor you, then you should be able to get in.

Hope this helps.

Thank You for the link

Hello Everyone!  :)

Hello. My name is Priscilla. I am from Jakarta, Indonesia. I'm visiting UK from 24 Jun until 8 Jul, this would be my first time. I'll be staying nearby London generally.

I know some people and some of my acquaintances in the UK. But it would be great if I could meet some Indonesian fellow, and also non-Indonesian, to make new friends, meet some new people.
Please let me know if you might have free time, so we can arrange to meet up, or maybe you can advise me places to visit.

I'd be glad to hearing from you. Thank you, guys!

Hi! I am Venezuelan, with a British boyfriend, I would like to find the way to stay longer periods of time in the UK in a legal way...I have a tourist visa, so I have visited the UK a few times already. Is there any Venezuelan around?

My name is Whitney Douglas. I'm 24 years old. I'm working in Moshi, Tanzania at a volunteers hostel called Hostel Hoff with my boyfriend Tom. He's from Taunton,England. I've signed up to this website so i can ask questions and learn some stuff which are going to be useful for my future life/studying in England. I'm looking forward to chat with you guys :)

Hi Whitney.
Good luck with your plans. It's not easy but it is possible. See the Uk visa govt site for official information.
To stay permanently you need to show your marriage to your husband either common law marriage or official. Thereafter he has to show he can support you there. Then you will have to apply and pay all the fees.

Not that easy not that hard
Wish you good luck

I am Namuddu irene kiiza, together with my husband we  want  relocate to England

Good day all
My name is Johan Muller.  I am a 27 year old South African looking at the possibility of immigrating to the UK.

Its something I've always wanted to do but it just seems impossible as you dont even know where to start at.

I am finishing up my degree (Bcom in Law) at the end of the year and as such I think that puts me in a slightly better position when attempting to find employment in the UK and then making the big move.

Would love some input and help on how one makes such a move, where to find employment, where to live, etc.  Such a daunting prospect but its something I really want to do.

I am also an avid Arsenal supporter (yes I know, sad) and an all round sports lover, so the chance to go watch some games over a weekend, watch some rugby, play some golf, etc is really appealing to me.
