Re: Moving back to scotland

Just to add to SanDiego girl, if your sister holds a UK passport there should be no question regarding right to work and access to NHS health care as far as proof. If no passport, it would be best to...

Re: Moving back to scotland

We also found Ontario everyday life to be expensive, especially housing. Toronto was a forget it, so we tried a small Ontario rural town where housing prices were much more reasonable. But the...

Re: Brits in Poland

I wish there was a subforum for Poland. Since my spouse is Polish with relatives there, some thought is being given to retiring in that country. In our case, that would be the central city of Lodz. I...

Re: Sex for rent issues in Dublin

I imagine this happens elsewhere too. But during a housing crisis just seems so unethical (leaving morality out of it).

Re: Healthcare in Ireland

At least with Ireland staying in the EU, good, qualified EU doctors and nurses can easily come and bolster the medical staffing needs at hospitals and clinics. It seems with Brexit, the UK will face...

Re: Healthcare in Ireland

Sorry, CFS = chronic fatigue syndrome? Also, I wonder if HSE asks for the UK NI number for those who had lived in the UK to merge health records and history.

Re: Healthcare in Ireland

Interesting and unfortunate situation. It reminds me of something similar here in the states. Many people, mostly with diabetes, living close to the Canadian border organize regular bus trips to...

Re: Healthcare in Ireland

Oh I see, yes good point. Here in the US quality also varies dramatically, especially between large cities and rural areas. But it sounds like in Ireland it's the waiting lists that drives many to...

Re: Healthcare in Ireland

Are you sure about NHS no cost eligibility conditions? I understood that any UK citizen who is ordinarily resident is eligible for the same free coverage regardless of past residency or tax...

Re: Healthcare in Ireland

Thanks much! I'm surprised to hear there would be any difference at all. It sounds like many in Ireland take out private insurance to avoid the public system, despite the additional costs. Still...

Healthcare in Ireland

As a lifelong UK citizen abroad, I'm wondering how the healthcare system in Ireland compares with the NHS in the UK. If not qualifying for the Irish system's Medical Card, I see there are basic fees...

Re: Moving back to the UK after living abroad over 5 years

I'd just add it's really not that hard to renew or get a first passport even when living outside the UK. It would make identification for health care and any other benefits that much easier for...

Re: The rose tinted glasses are off.

Link looks very good for retirement options. Will need to schedule a visit once overseas travel opens up. EU is definitely a huge plus. Again, many thanks!

Re: The rose tinted glasses are off.

Thanks much, Moses. This information is exactly what I was looking for. I just shared your post with my spouse and we see this as something also for us. The photos of the countryside there are...

Re: The rose tinted glasses are off.

Eye opening and always good to hear many perspectives and experiences in moving back. I'm of similar mind. Not at all thrilled with the values here in the US, and pretty awful these last 4 years. But...

Re: "Underbelly" and the privatisation of Edinburgh

Quality of life is right. Disneyfication is a real threat to choosing and moving to a place that's genuine and real. It reminds me of the flocks of tourists going to Romania not to discover the...

Latest housing prices and location question

We're finally getting closer to our move to Ireland from the US in retirement. As I plan to visit and look for best places and housing costs, is there still a huge difference between house ownership...

Re: Sex for rent issues in Dublin

Sounds like these landlords need services found in special districts of Amsterdam or Frankfurt. Leave these poor renters alone. They certainly have enough worries!

Re: $ -£ exchange rate

US pension and SS will go a long way as $/£ edges closer to parity. It is tempting for expats in US to return for this reason. But then you're left with the Brexit aftermath economic and political...

Re: Brits in Ireland post Brexit

Ok, thanks for the very informative link. It does help clarify where we are today in policy. Although freedom of EU movement and employment is missing (obviously) and that's definitely not...

Re: Brits in Ireland post Brexit

Again, I certainly hope your thoughts on maintaining the existing CTA agreement holds up. But I don't see how there can be a liberalization of immigration when freedom of movement with the EU is...

Re: Brits in Ireland post Brexit

Yes exactly, and interesting points. Scotland for sure will clamor for another departure referendum and may be successful this time. The UK economy will take a hit, and perhaps for quite a while. In...

Re: Brits in Ireland post Brexit

Not intending to keep resurrecting this informative thread, but things seem a bit worrisome lately (to me, anyway). With Boris Johnson now appearing willing to crash out of the EU by end of October,...

Re: Stay in LA or return to UK? Will appreciate thoughts

Maybe Chicago as an alternative? Much more diverse culturally and very European compared to the rest of the US, especially LA.
