Teapa in Anglia UK – Cum sa recunosti si sa te feresti de cele mai dese tepe

Din pacate numarul celor care isi iau teapa in Anglia este in continuare foarte mare. Acesti tepari profita de naivitatea si disperarea Romanilor plecati in UK, si de multe ori te lasa nu doar fara bani, dar si cu informatiile personale furate si vandute mai departe altora. Aceste informatii pot fi folosite pentru a infiinta firme si lua imprumuturi consistente pe numele tau. Din pacate multi s-au trezit cu inspectorii fiscului si politia la usa, fiind investigati pentru firme si afaceri care nici nu stiau ca le au. Haideti sa vedem cele mai dese tepe in Anglia si cum sa ne ferim de ele:

  • Ofer rezidenta PRE SETTLED fara dovezi
teapa cu rezidenta in UK Pre settled

Probabil cea mai des intalnita teapa de cand cu Brexit-ul. Am postat de nenumarate ori in trecut si pe multe grupuri: Daca nu ai fost in Anglia inainte de 31 Decembrie 2020 sau nu ai rude de gradul 1 deja stabilite in UK, nu mai poti lua rezidenta in Anglia si UK! Fara rezidenta nu poti inchiria, nu poti locui si nu poti munci in Anglia UK! E foarte simplu, Brexit-ul a inlaturat acest drept tuturor Europenilor, nu doar Romanilor. Am explicat foarte clar in articolul despre IMIGRARE ANGLIA 2021 DUPA BREXIT, cine mai poate veni acum in Anglia si care sunt caile legale de a veni acum cu viza de lucru.

Cum caut casa de inchiriat in Anglia UK

[How to find a house to rent in England – UK – English article here]

“Caut casa de inchiriat”, “caut flat de inchiriat” – acestea sunt de departe mesajele cele mai des intalnite pe grupurile de Romani din Anglia / UK. Intotdeauna m-am intrebat de ce acesti oameni nu se uita niciodata la agentii pentru casa, in loc sa apeleze la diferiti combinatori si samsari care le dau case la suprapret, fara contract si fara nici un drept legal. Raspunsul nu e intotdeauna simplu. Multi pur si simplu nu stiu Engleza si ezita sa apeleze la agentii, multi nu au de gand sa stea mult in UK si vor ceva repede sezonier, multi nu au sau au impresia ca nu au actele necesare sa inchirieze legal o casa, si multi pur si simplu nu stiu cum se face sa inchirieze o casa prin agentie. Pentru cei din urma va voi arata dedesubt pas cu pas cum sa cauti o casa de inchiriat in UK si cum sa o si iei.

Nu va faceti griji in privinta actelor, de cele mai multe ori aveti deja actele necesare si nici nu stiati ca le aveti. Daca nu cumva abia ai aterizat in Anglia si nu ai nici un act, (practic e aproape imposibil dupa Brexit) sigur vei avea un fluturas de salariu, un carnet de conducere, o scrisoare de la doctor sau de la consiliu, o factura sau un extras bancar cu numele tau si o adresa de Anglia UK. Oricare dintre acestea sunt dovezi de rezidenta in Anglia si pot fi date la agentie. Tinand cont ca ne-am mutat de 3 ori in tara asta, cred ca am ceva experienta in domeniul. Iata procedura completa cum sa cauti casa in Anglia si sa o si iei:

Ce zic cei intorsi din Anglia in Romania? E mai bine acasa in tara ta?

THE ROMANIANS THAT LEFT THE UK FOR ROMANIA – WHAT DO THEY SAY? IS IT BETTER HOME OR WILL THEY COME BACK? – EN Article

I-am intrebat in articolul anterior pe Romanii din Marea Britanie UK despre viata lor aici – despre Brexit si daca se merita sa mai vii in UK , oficial in 2021 suntem aproape un milion de Romani aici, veniti nu doar din Romania, multi chiar din Spania sau Italia. M-am gandit ca ar fi corect sa ii intreb si pe cei care zic ca e mai buna viata totusi acasa in Romania, pe pamantul tau natal. Haideti sa vedem cum se descurca cei intorsi din Anglia in Romania, care au plecat din Regatul Unit (UK) inapoi acasa, ce fac ei astazi si cum e viata lor in Romania.

V.P. – stat 6 ani in Marea Britanie UK

-Ce te-a facut sa pleci din Marea Britanie UK si sa te intorci in tara?

  • Nu mi-a placut atitudinea oamenilor, discriminarea, nivelul de trai. Ca sa poti trai decent in UK … nu prea mai ai viata personala.

How to change your EU driving license to a UK Driving license

For EU expats established in England UK, the act of changing their driving license in to an English or British one, is often a mandatory step due to work requirements. Possession of a British UK driving license is also the first and easiest way to obtain proof of residence with a picture and address here in England UK. This is one of the few documents accepted by banks, real estate agencies or employers. The others are more difficult to obtain (bank card, local council bil / utility bill or British passport).

The procedure to change your driving license in England UK is fortunately very simple and relatively quick. All official information can be found on the British government website here. As it is clearly written on the website, the citizens of any EU state have no legal obligation to change their driving license and are allowed to drive with the European license until the age of 70. For those who have obtained their driving license in a country outside the European Union, the driving license must be changed to a British license within 12 months of arrival in England UK.

Immigration from EU to UK England after Brexit – Work and Family paths – Who can do it and how?

[IMIGRARE ANGLIA DUPA BREXIT CU CONTRACT DE MUNCA SAU REINTREGIRE FAMILIE – CUM SI CINE POATE? ro articol]

It seems that some people still don’t understand that the UK has left the EU and that you cannot enter England after Brexit without having to answer to border officials regarding the purpose of your visit. So let’s see what are the legal ways to come to England after Brexit if you do not have a residence permit (aka Settled Status).

First of all, you can say goodbye to any thought of visiting England and looking for work during your visit. Many were refused entrance in to the country at the airport on a PERMANENT basis if the customs officers even sniffed that you came to work and not just to visit. The British authorities started asking EU nationals for a return ticket, proof of accommodation during the visit and proof that you have enough money to sustain yourself for the duration of your stay. If you’re lucky enough, nobody will ask you anything at the airport, but are you really willing to take that chance and risk flying for nothing?

In addition, all (legal) British employers and all employment agencies are now required by law to request from candidates the so-called “share code” which is an internet link generated by the UK government’s website to the page proving that you are resident in England UK. It doesn’t matter if you have Settled or (Pre) Settled Status, they both give you the right to work and live in England. I explained in the last article how to apply for Settled Status. The deadline to apply for residency was June 30, 2021 (there are very few exceptions in exceptional cases for those who live in England before 2021 or have family here but did not have time to apply before June 2021, the list of exemptions is here). But let’s say you still want to come to England and you don’t have a NINO, residency or any work history or studies in the UK. Let’s see what options you have:

Is it better to live in Germany or UK on the long term? Why?

The war is long over, but who won in the end, Germany or UK England? Historians say that the United Kingdom and the Allies, but the modern reality on the ground says otherwise. In addition to official data, we will also look at the experiences of those who actually live in these two countries. I live and work in the UK – England since 2018, and my friends here have been living in various areas of England (London, Manchester) for more than 6 years. I have not lived in Germany personally (just in France) so I asked friends who have live there for research material. Three of them responded, out of which one is a doctor in the Dusseldorf area for 11 years, one works in retail in the Stuttgart area for more than 15 years and one came more recently (3 years) also in Dusseldorf metro area to work in the hospitality sector. Here is what I gathered from all of it:

  • Wages in Germany were already considerably higher than in the UK even before the Brexit referendum, which led to a decline in the value of the pound sterling, and this trend will continue in 2022. In 2020, the average gross wage in Germany was of EUR 47928 or GBP 40866 (at today’s exchange rate). In England UK – the average salary in the country is about 30000 Pounds per year or 35180 EUR at today’s rate. And the pound might continue to fall in 2022 due to the lack of strategy on the part of the British government and the general lack of management of the entire Brexit process; It is true that you pay more taxes in Germany, but even so, your NET income for the same job will still be higher there, no matter how you look at it (there are of course exceptions).

How is cycling in UK? Is the Bicycle reliable?

We’ve all heard that England is a friendly country towards cyclists, but what’s it really like cycling in UK England? After years of hesitation, I finally mustered the courage to buy a second-hand bicycle. On fb market, I found this baby for just 60 pounds. Not bad, right?

Bicycle in England UK

I haven’t ridden a bike for many years, but I slowly worked it out. First through the local neighborhood, and then through the city. For a beginner cyclist, I must admit that the road infrastructure for cyclists and the car driver’s behavior is very encouraging. There are literally everywhere segregated routes from car traffic for bicycles, clearly marked dedicated lanes that are usually physically separated by some kind of barrier (green space, curbs, stanchions, etc.). But by far the most encouraging factor is the behavior of car drivers towards cyclists in UK England. Every time or at least 8 out of 10 cases, when they see you approaching an intersection, they slow down or come to a complete stop and signal you to pass. And if you have to share the road with cars, the drivers stay calm behind you until the opposite lane is clear, and then they overtake you with generous clearance to the bicycle. That is, without horns, close calls overtaking, without harassment, verbal abuse, etc, you know the usual in Romania and East Europe in general.

HOW IS CYCLING IN UK? IS THE BICYCLE RELIABLE? English Article HERE

Am auzit toti ca Anglia e o tara prietenoasa pentru biciclisti, dar cum de fapt cu bicicleta in Anglia? Dupa ani de ezitari, am facut in sfarsit curaj si am cumparat o bicicleta la mana a doua. Pe fb market am gasit aceasta minunatie la 60 de lire. Nu e rau nu?

Bicicleta in Anglia

Nu am mai mers de foarte multi ani pe bicicleta, dar usor usor mi-am facut curaj. Prima oara prin cartier, si dupa prin oras. Pentru un biciclist incepator, trewbuie sa recunosc ca infrastructura rutiera pentru biciclisti si compartamentul soferilor auto este extrem de incurajant. Exista literalmente peste tot circuite separate de traficul auto pentru biciclete, benzi dedicate clar marcate si deobicei separate fizic de un fel de bariera (spatiu verde, borduri, stalpisori, etc). Dar de departe cel mai incurajator este comportamentul soferilor fata de cei pe bicicleta in Anglia UK. De fiecare data sau macar 8 din 10 cazuri, cand te vad ca apropii de intersectie, incetinesc sau opresc si iti fac semn sa treci. Iar daca cumva trebuie sa mergi pe carosabil impreuna cu masinile, soferii stau calmi in spatele tau pana se elibereaza banda opusa, si te depasesc cu spatiu generos fata de bicicleta. Adica fara claxoane, treceri la milimetru, fara hartuire, injuraturi si ce se mai intampla prin Romania.
