    Default Costs of Emigrating from UK - LIST!

    Thought we could come up with the ultimate costs list!

    Try to keep this mainly in list form and cut, paste & edit, to add to the original list, if you think of a cost but don't know how much then put it down and someone else can fill it in later.

    Please look to the END of the thread for the latest version(s).

    Where costs vary just put a range and state why. Its fine to have a few different costs for the same thing as long as we know why they differ.

    From Belmont Babes Thanks! ( http://www.enz.org/forum/showthread....923#post153923 ):

    EOI is $400 since 30 July this year, so about 155 now (or at least at the beginning of the week when I submitted mine)
