Ties with SA: Given the UK’s historic relationship with South Africa as a former British colony, many South Africans find resonance with the English way of life. The fact that English is the country’s lingua franca also means that migration to the UK comes without any language barrier related challenges, especially within a professional or business context.
Cultural hub: The UK is home to foreign migrants from across the world. As one of the world’s premier super cities, London has a lot to offer – you could spend a full year exploring it and still not have seen it all.
Free healthcare: Once you become a legal UK resident, you’ll gain access to the National Health Service (NHS). The UK is one of the world’s leading jurisdictions when it comes to medical research, and their hospitals rank among some of the world’s best.
Geographical hub: Strategically positioned within Europe, the UK is just a stone’s throw from a host of EU countries. Air connectivity to London Heathrow is excellent, with many low cost local and regional carriers flying into the city on an hourly basis.
Natural beauty: The UK’s dramatic coastline and Lakes district feature some of the best scenery in the world.
Arts and entertainment: The cultural and music industries in the UK are booming. For live music lovers there literally is not a better city to live in than London.
