Unless you have certain ties to an EU nation, or your parents were born in and EU state and you can become a citizen of the EU then don't bother wasting your time and rent money in London!
If your father was born in the UK/EU then get a British passport because you wont need to waste money on a stupid visa.
You can get a British ancestor visa (if your grandparents were from the UK) and that lets you live and work in the UK for 5 years without restriction, but after that you need to apply for Permanent residence. Plus you are not allowed to get access to the UK pension. Still everytime you enter Heathrow or the Schengen zone you do have to get stamped back into the UK or Europe But EU's citizens do not get stamped in Schengen at all.
The Youth visa only gives you 2 years of working in the UK and after 2 years you either need to get sponsored for another visa or go back home. But If you lived in London for 2 years you just don't achieve anything.
I do want to live in the UK but i was sick of all my cousins from New Zealand wasting their years living in London. I mean the cheapest rent in London is like 60 pound a week and compare that to Birmingham where its 45 quid a week.
Plus one of my estranged New Zealand cousin was discouraging me moving to the UK when i have a British passport, a British family up north and i am allot more British than my cousin who obtained an Irish Passport because of his Great grandfather. My father was born in Mainland UK not a DOMINION or Colony
In the end he was wasting his time and Rent money in London and id rather get a job in Birmingham and pay 45 pound a week in rent. But if i was only paying 60 quid a week in London then i guess i wouldn't be wasting my rent money. But still 15 pound a week is a huge difference
Also in the next 12 month i am going to spend 3 months living in Sofia Bulgaria. I am only going to spend less than $300 AUD on rent and bills a month and i am going to write my 3rd & 4th Volume's of A Metalhead Solo Travels
I don't like living in Australia because everyone in Europe seems to get by on low wages and low rent. So ill get the hell out of here soon and do the reversal migration what my father did and after all i don't give 2 shits what anyone thinks.
Because you don't tell the Somali or the Eritrean not to flee their country so you don't tell the man with a British passport and a British family not to move back to the UK!
