8. Culture and local law

Working overseas can be an opportunity to immerse yourself in a completely different culture and live in a completely different way to that which you normally experience in the UK. In order to not experience difficulties it is important to remember you are in a culture with different laws and etiquettes to that which you are use to at home.

We recommend you research the local laws and customs before leaving for your work assignment.

Please see the country factsheets and government travel advice for more country specific information.
