Take the uncertainty, stress and risks out of your move to the UK

Congratulations. You've just stumbled across what you've been looking for.

This is the single biggest source of helpful and useful information that you're going to find in your quest to move to the UK - guaranteed.

Securing the correct visa is seen by many as being the Holy Grail in the process. This is true for the early phase of immigration, but it's what happens once you've cleared immigration control that matters most to you in the long run. Visas are thoroughly explained in the guide, although in the bigger scheme of things the visa is the easy part. Once you're in the UK your problems change to the challenges of settling in and achieving the things you're hoping for.

Think about your own country for a moment. Would you think it likely that an immigrant would succeed just because they have a legal visa? They clear passport control at your local airport and they're immediately living the life they hoped for? It doesn't work that way in the UK either.

Why not have a detailed, up-to-date and accurate UK immigration map? A map that shows you the way from start to finish. A map that tells you what you should do and when.

A map that lets you know where there is danger as well as opportunity. A map that provides a solution to every UK immigration problem.

Sure you can get involved with immigration advisors, lawyers and relocation agents, but they charge thousands for information that you can get right here, right now.

Whether these are your visa options, employment possibilities or accommodation needs, your concerns are fully catered for in this guide.

It's a safe, cheap, fast and powerful way of finding out whether you're equipped for the challenge of UK immigration and what is REALLY involved.


In addition to the unrivalled guide, you will also receive:

BONUS #1: A special report explaining the UK schooling system. This 16-page report is written specifically with two types of readers in mind: parents with school-age children and people wanting (or needing) to study in the UK. For some people the latter may be their only visa option.

If you have a child needing schooling, everything that you will need to know about educating them from the age of 4 to 16 is detailed. How the complicated UK education system works, its regional aspects, local characteristics, curricula, relevant contact details and much more are to be found in this report.

For some people the only way that they'll be able to spend time in the UK is if they're on a student visa. So if you want to be one of the 800,000 international students attending an UK college or university this year, experiencing the British life, then the second half of this report is essential reading for you. Issues such as: how to choose a course or college, your employment rights, state healthcare benefits, etc., are clearly explained. Student visas are dealt with in the main text of the guide.

You also get 3 vital pieces of weaponry in your armoury that you have to have before setting out to look for work in the UK:

BONUS #2: A Curriculum Vitae (CV) that is in the British format - which is nothing like a resume. This document is the record of your employment history and has to market you successfully in the highly competitive UK labour market. This format is what is expected by UK employers, recruitment agents and even immigration officials for certain types of visas. Anything other than this format will not get you the attention that you deserve. A template is included that helps you fill in all the necessary details where they have to appear. You also become privy to a few proven tips that make your CV stand out above your competitors. The value of this template to you is unquantifiable.

BONUS #3: A complete separate British job interview guide crammed full of interview tips that will help you to navigate through the unfamiliar waters of British job interviews. You will have to contend with a culture very different to your own when you're job-hunting in the UK. Innocent cultural mistakes will cost you dearly. This interview guide on its own is 77 pages - yes, it's THAT important. Don't leave home without it.

BONUS #4: An unique and practical guide on how to successfully deal with culture shock - the often overlooked factor that can easily sink your plans and ambitions in your new country. We all buy in to stereotypes and when the reality is shown to be somewhat different, this leads to confusion and anxiety - which is culture shock. It is a demotivating phenomenon that slows us down at a time when we need to be at our very best. This happens to us all (including those accompanying you in this move), but it's how we deal with culture shock that matters. Why not have this handy guide which can minimize the energy-sapping effects of culture shock and keep your plans on track?
