Re: Best relocation areas in the UK?

We’re selling because we want a property with more land and equestrian facilities. My comment was a throw away one though, as it absolutely wouldn’t be suitable for a family looking for city life....

Re: Emigrating and medication advice

If you look at the link the OP has given for the insurance they intend to buy, it’s not travel insurance at all but insurance for new immigrants, so they are looking at the correct thing.

Re: Eca

You can't get an ECA for vocational qualifications, what you need to do for extra points is get provincial certification instead. Assume you're planning on applying under FST?

Re: Emigrating and medication advice

re: Emigrating and medication advice

Once you are no longer resident, you aren't eligible for subsidised medication under the NHS. So no, you can't say you're on holiday for 3 months or get a friend to collect it for you.

But you...

Re: Is It Wrong To Want To 'Look' For An American Girlfriend

As you're about to move to the US, and will soon find yourself surrounded by USC's, I'd just wait until you get there personally. Hopefully the woman of your dreams will be right around the corner.

Re: Best relocation areas in the UK?

Our house is currently on the market (wanna buy it?!), and our estate agent fee is 0.75%. It's a 'normal' estate agent, but you can use agents such as Purple Bricks that don't charge commission too,...

Re: Is it realistic to expect an ItA with 438 CRS points?

Yes, I’m aware there is no minimum. But I disagree that ‘they’re not targeting people based on their CRS points anymore’, as most draws are still based on exactly that. Targeted draws are rare and...

Re: Is it realistic to expect an ItA with 438 CRS points?

You do have 60 days to submit a full application, but then once the LOI is issued you have a year from the date of that to actually enter Canada and activate it. So if you had an ITA last summer...

Oh bum. For future ref, once you get an IEC you have a year to activate it, so could have used it this year.

It’s a relocation agent you need for that, not an estate agent. Very different things in the UK!
