Yay! Congratulations. Do you know when you're planning to POE?

I'm hoping for sometime between Sept 2nd and 8th, but it all depends how quick I can ditch my possessions aha.

Do you know if I need to inform any UK authorities/groups/government that I'm leaving?

Not really.

If you work and you won't be for the UK anymore, you might want to complete and send in a P85. It just tells them not to be expecting any of your tax monies any time soon. ;)

Congrats!!! I am just waiting for mine to be delivered today. Its only 9:07, so probably will be waiting a little longer for the courier to knock the door yet. Im getting so excited for the delivery! Was the sealed envelope that you have to give to an officer at POE included in the package with your passport when it was delivered?

Oooh, congrats to you too!

Yeah the sealed envelope was there, although very unimpressive compared to what I was expecting. And huge. I have no idea how I'm going to carry it in my hand luggage!
