About Florida & Moving to Florida From The UK

Florida is well known for its many theme parks and leisure facilities. It’s nicknamed the “Sunshine” state, because of its year round sunshine and warm climate. Florida has over 1,800 miles of coastline making it an ideal location for activities like fishing and water sports. It also offers wild wetlands, mangrove islands and a number of interesting artist colonies.

Visa Requirements When Moving to Florida From The UK

Since 9/11 US policy changes have resulted in much more selective immigration regulations, getting a visa to work is now nowhere near as easy as it was. If you want to work in the US you can apply for several types of visa:

• A H1-B non-immigrant visa is for skilled, educated people working for a sponsoring employer in specific occupations such as maths, engineering, law or medicine

• A H-2B is for temporary non-agricultural workers and is available for foreign workers doing seasonal work where there is a shortage of local workers.

• The J-1 Visa Exchange Visitor Program for people looking to study, teach or carry out research in the US.

• The green card – this will entitle you to become a permanent resident. You can obtain a green card through a job or job offer, provided there aren’t enough US workers who can do the job.

• There is also the annual green card lottery; each year 55,000 people win permanent residence

Visa and work permit requirements may change at short notice; it is advisable to contact your respective embassy or consulate for the latest details.

Property Prices When Moving to Florida From The UK

As a general guide you will find property prices in Florida are influenced by location and demand. Your choice of location will be influenced by many things such as your place of work, where family and friends live or to be close to a good school.

Local agents will be the best place to start. The process of buying any type of property or land in Florida is strictly regulated. The services of certain professionals are required for the process. The local estate agent should be able to give an estimation of all fees and the property charges the buyer will be responsible for when they become the owner.

Travel & Moving to Florida From UK

Most people feel it is necessary to own a car in Florida. Car prices are less than in the UK and the price of petrol is also cheaper; although you will probably find that you are driving a lot further.

Public transport around Florida’s larger cities and communities is easy and you will have plenty of choice. Do what an increasing number of locals do and make use of the buses, subway or light rail system. Travelling in this way can be an efficient, affordable, safe, and eco-friendly option, particularly in areas where traffic is heavy and parking difficult. Many transport systems let you buy multi-day passes; check ticket options online before you arrive to get the best deals.

The Florida regional public transportation system is called LYNX and is a public bus system that services all of Central Florida. If you are looking for LYNX bus stops, they are often marked by a round sign with either a pink paw or pink bus symbol and are usually easy to spot.
