From India to the UK - what should you know

Culture clash is a big issue when moving abroad. When you are undergoing a relocation to a foreign land, there are a lot of things you need to learn about before you can start living comfortably in your new home. And if you are moving home from exotic countries like India, then maybe you should hear first what you need to know about your relocation and then what can you do to make the stay in the UK more than just bearable – rather, how to make yourself feel at home.

Get the Visa as Soon as Possible
Visitors can stay in the UK for up to six months. But if you want to be a permanent citizen, then apply for visa as soon as possible. Visit the site of the British government and see what the regulations for applying for visa from India are. Then start filling blanks and wait for the positive results.

Find the Community
You might be surprised to hear it, but the Hindu community in the United Kingdom constitutes over 25% of the British population. The country houses over a hundred Hindu temples, 30 of them are in London. And speaking of London, there is a large concentration of Hindu people so if you want to feel right at home and deal with culture clash gradually, find the community there.

There are a few things that every new visitor should go through in order to make living in the UK easier. One of them is getting an Oyster card – it’s the fad today and it will make payments that simpler. The other one is figuring out the London Underground. If you will be situated in London, then get used to the tube and travelling about. UK public transport as a whole should be explored and you will be pleasantly surprised by it as well.

When your house removal to the UK is completed, you will feel mostly at home. The culture clash is not that severe and there is plenty in terms of community to help you deal with it. Once you are settled and found all your favourite spots to enjoy, you can spread out and start learning more about British culture as a part of the country.
