Moving to England?
« on: 29.08. 2014 18:06 »
Hey guys, I'm thinking about to move to England.

Not for me, but my BSA miss home. :)

Seriously, I can't handle this place anymore. We thought about Germany but if my english is bad, my german is zero.
We always love England, maybe its a possibility. There's a few problems. How to send my stuff (like my motorcycle and maybe one car) but it's not the real problem, the problem is about houses. We have 2 Dobermanns who live outside at the garden.
Seems like the dogs used to live inside the houses by the wheater or lack of space.

The prices is also a problem, but I know with a few tips I can found something great to rent and live.

Well... that's it... just sharing some thoughts... :)

First do much research, everything form restrictions regarding dogs to property\rent prices. Europe can be difficult and expensive. If one could get a job first that would make a difference, and plan any permanent moving afterwards. Use the internet and try to find out what kind of skills and work experience the different countries may look for. But already many people out of work in Europe.

Yes, we want to move with a job already. Is easier move to Germany but only my wife speak german.
Some country where I can use english is better. The US is much more difficult because we need a lot of money to get an green card. To europe is easier but expensive.

We have a really good life here, a nice house with a big garden, cars, motorcycles... our place is near of everything by foot.
But we don't have security. Has been a long time since we stopped to hang out at night afraid of robbery.

At the end of the last year, at day 22, coming back to home from a lovely night with friends, almost 10 blocks from home we've been robbed. The bandits hit us with a car (we were in only one motorcycle) we came to ground and when we are recovering, thinking it was an accident, they announced the robbery. The christmas and new year was in bed recovering the harms in our feet and knees. So we don't want this anymore. If we want raise kids or have a quiet life, we need to go away.

São Paulo is impossible, and the other cities also. We can go to inland, but the people behavior is still the same. Most of people don't have respect, think only in themselves, don't care about the city cleaness or other people.

Well, that´s a little picture of the reasons.
Sorry about the emotional outburst.  *sad*

Hi Daniel, can't speak for the UK but in Belgium we have a shortage of technical people like builders, mechanical engineers, electricians, plumbers, welders, roadworkers etc... If you are skilled in one of those area's, it shouldn't be to difficult to get a job.
Have you already checked at an embassy? They can provide you all information regarding immigration. EU country's all have more or less the same rules when it comes to migration. Within the EU there is a free labour market so once you have found a job and got settled in one country, you can move and work in whatever country you like.
Good luck!

Failing all that there's plenty of room over here and you get to keep the same seasons and weather.

Hey everybody, thank you very much.


I can't speak for the INS, but you're welcome here, as far as I'm cocerned.


Richard, it's OK with the INS if I have U$500.000,00 to apply for an Green Card. But I haven't. (Yes, I'm trying the lottery but Isn't work so far)

.....and if the UK or USA doesn't work out ,well, why not consider coming to Canada  *smile*


Scotty, I have considered Canada. Everything is fine there but the wheater. Here is so hot and Canada is SO SO COLD! :-\

Hi Daniel, can't speak for the UK but in Belgium we have a shortage of technical people like builders...


Morris, but in Belgium I gonna have the language problem, don't I?
My wife have German citzenship and that's why is easier go to UE.
Probably we gonna to Germany / London in november and I'm thinking about rent a car and make a little trip trought Belgium. I'm gonna see with other eyes the country and everything.

Failing all that there's plenty of room over here and you get to keep the same seasons and weather.

Muskrat, Trevinoz and Kiwipom...
Yes.... Australia is an lovely option. Specially by the weather. I'm also considering but It's so far from almost everything... I mean, seems to be, I don't know exactly. In Europe you can get your car and ride across 4 diferent countries in some hours. But ok, Brazil is really big, If we want go by car to other country, the nearest from São Paulo is Paraguay after 1.100Km. Considering the distances between (example) São Paulo - London or Sidney - London, will be the same.

Well, there's a lot to thing about and consider. But thanks everybody, I enjoyed a lot reading the suggestions.

  p.s. shame about the world cup. 

Yes, everybody love this thing here. I'm gonna tell you, I haven't watched one single game. I was cleaning my house when the game with germany was happening and my wife says: It's very quiet outside there, not a single goal yet? Let me check...
When she turn on the TV It was 3 x 0, and right away comes the 4th.
Then I started to watch and laugh a lot.   *lol*
