Moving Country is Challenging & Turns out to be the Best of Better Decisions – Moved to London, United Kingdom

If any amendments are required, please write to prm @ or DM at Facebook

We have tons and tons of things while moving to another country from a home country. This is highly challenging, and most of us don’t have a clear idea as what to do and what not to do. I was under significant pressure to have things right. You can read about my issue here. This is not an extensive full list, but as a solo migrant, this should be perfectly fine.

  • Collecting your BRP (Biometric Residence Permit)
  • Opening a Bank Account
  • Registering with the GP (NHS)
  • Get online access (Patient Access) with NHS
  • Get your Oyster Card
  • Seek appointment for National Insurance (NI) if it isn’t in your BRP
  • Get Rain Coats & Umbrella for the entire family
  • Setup Mobile & Internet services. It usually takes 15 days.
  • Register for Voting with your local council.
  • Apply for your Provisional Driving License (LLR). You can drive in the UK with Indian Driving License and no need for an International Driving Permit.
  • Change Social Media location to #London, #UnitedKingdom and have a Display Picture next to the London Bridge or Tower Bridge. (Note Tower Bridge and London Bridge are different from each other – it took me 3 months to realize it)
  • Register for Council Tax.

The above list is not full and not in order. But do let me know if I missed something by messaging me on my Facebook.
