Post Migrating to Isle of Man

Hi expat friends,

I'm just wondering what's the cost of living in Isle of Man(Douglas)? I've got a job offer at hand and my employer will sponsor my work visa(with family) to the island. I would like to know the cost of living for 2 person. 2nd question is, my spouse is working in Australia as a registered pharmacist. Can a registered pharmacist from Australia work in Isle of Man? The problem we have right now is how my spouse can find work in Isle of Man..

I'd estimate the cost of living on IoM to be higher than Northern England (as everything has to be brought over from the mainland), but lower than SE England and London. You should be reasonably comfortable with a combined income of 50,000.
IoM will probably follow the UK rule on recognising overseas qualification, and she will need to register with General Pharmaceutical Council: https://www.pharmacyregulation.org/r...ed-pharmacists
The Manx Government site is informative: https://www.gov.im/

Hi Joppa, thanks for the quick response. appreciate it. We are going to read the links you've shared over the weekend.

1 more question, let's say I already working (with work permit) in IOM, am I allowed to travel to UK? is visa still required? We will definitely looking to have a holiday vacation in UK in future.

Yes, you can, as IoM and UK are both in common travel area.

Remember the work authorisation/visa for IoM doesn't automatically give you the right to work and live in UK - you will need to investigate if a fresh UK visa is needed. CTA only covers visits and temporary stays.

Hi Joppa, Yes. We are only planning a vacation/holidays in UK area. We have no intention to work or live in UK.

Your comment/feedback is really valuable. Thanks again!
