Do you already have an offer? If not, you should be prepared for about 60% of your current pay. The salaries are lower in the UK. Cost of living - its comparable to Manhattan or San Francisco. Its the combination of lower pay and higher cost of living that hits you.

Got it. Any desi fishes living in the UK right now, who could help with the above? Would love to talk and understand from someone who is living there

Living cost: similar to NYC. Canary wharf, Greenwich, tower Hamlet's, Canada water have relatively newer apts. If you are by yourself I would recommend a flat/apt share. Look at apps like spare room, right move, etc. You would not need a car, esp. if your planning to live close to Central London or the city. PR depends on your type of Tier2 visa. For instance, your time on a Tier 2 general visa will count towards getting a ILR post 5years but tier 2 ICT wouldn't.

Agree with M1. If you want to reduce cost further, you could stay on the end of jubilee line (for canary wharf) like Stratford..

Thanks much m1. Is there a number I can contact you at? Going through a tough time due to h1b rfe rejection and planning to take the UK offer, wanted to talk specifically on tier 2

Thanks strategy 1

M1: in either tier 2 situation, can my wife work asap/on landing if I have the relevant tier 2 Visa approved?

Yes she can OP

OP: she would be able to work as a dependant on your Tier 2 visa (both ICT/general). Happy to provide more information if needed. Can be reached at burnerfishb114@gmail.com

Thanks m1. Dropped you a burner. Let me know if you can chat
