What to arrange for before going abroad >>

In the EU, you can travel only with an ID, but in terms of arranging the formalities in offices or at the bank, then only one identity document is not enough. In the bank, there is an ID, passport and sometimes driving license, if you have one, required. The more documents the better. All documents shall not be valid for less than 12 months. For dealing with official matters even a birth certificate or marriage certificate can be useful. It is necessary to take into account that you do not have any past in the country and in the beginning, it can also be difficult to prove where you live.  

In Great Britain, a rental agreement does not serve as a proof of address, there are bills, bank statements or official letters required. Therefore, the first document should be an invitation to NINo (National Insurance Number) or directly a letter with this number. Bank statements from your home can also help. If you consider buying your own vehicle, ask your insurance company for the issue of driving history and have it translated. This document can then result in a significant reduction of compulsory insurance. If you work in a specialized field, then will not forget your vocational certificate, diploma or recommendations from previous employments. If you work at an unqualified force, you will probably not need these documents.
