Working outside the USA

I am planning to move to London for a few months and was hoping to experience some work over there. Anyone know how to go about doing that?

Congrats on the opportunity to work abroad! Definitely contact the governing agency before you go and find out what kind of paperwork you will need to get before you leave. I live in Switzerland and had to get all kinds of stuff that would’ve been easier had I known I needed it before I left. You may need paperwork certified by your school, or you may need to have some documentation with an “apostille,” which is kind of like a notary, which is obtainable from the Secretary of State where you live or went to school.

You say you’re moving for a few months – will you have an appropriate work visa? If you enter a country on a travel visa, you will not be eligible for employment.

I’m assuming you’re American (based on the title of your post), and be aware that you are required to report worldwide income to the IRS – this means any and all income you earn outside of the USA. You may also have a difficult time finding a bank that will open an account for you because of FATCA – I have an American girlfriend that lived in London for 10+ years and her bank suddenly closed her account because of this a few years ago (and there is only 1 bank in Switzerland that will accept me as a customer because of my passport). This website has some great info for American expats and taxes (look under FAQ) http://www.greenbacktaxservices.com/

That said, I love living and working in Europe. It’s easy to take a long weekend and go somewhere amazing and it’s easy to get almost anywhere. Nothing is impossible if you have determination and enthusiasm – good luck!

I would start with taking a look at their professional websites, then contacting them directly for questions. Here are some links: http://www.bsdht.org.uk/res/Dental%20Hygienists%20and%20Dental%20Therapists.pdf http://www.ifdh.org/wk_abroad/uk.html
