    Hello @Ivan1015 Thank you for your post.

    I believe you will need to visit and talk to some one like a official from the British Embassy.

    What requirements you need to be applying residency in the UK.

    Understand this might include everything around being a resident of the UK.

    including visas. Plus additional information. You may have to show the official from the embassy.

    Such as finances, how will you support yourself in the UK.?  Where will you live.?

    Extra costs and wellbeing health. 

    Something to consider.

    Hope that helps.

    Take care.

    @steve51 Good Morning Steve.

    I have to talk to deaf my friend in the UK. He says the UK is difficult to seek a job in the UK because the UK seeks high Qualifications but I don't have high Qualifications I have just matric and experience a Data Capturer, bit wood handwork. It's truly difficult to seek a job with a disability in the UK? I want a goal in the UK job and permit. I will go to Brisith Embassy on Monday but wait to hear from u. Let me know anything, Please. Thank. 

    Thanks

    Hello!

    What are your skills? Do you have any qualifications? Often companies have a website where they have information on any job vacancies currently available. I’d start there. Good luck!

    Hi @Ivan1015

    Good Afternoon, I have just read my good friend’s @thespiceman posts & I do think that going to the “British Embassy” over with you too see if they can help you is the best course action??

    Hi @Ivan1015

    Good Evening.

    Yes Disabilities have becoming more high profile nowadays.

    Unfortunately I can’t say that you will go straight into a job straightaway.

    The British Embassy is still the best way forward for you I would say.
