So, the UPS man delivered my passport today with my UK work visa stamped in it. Now all that's left is for me to remember to carry it along en route to London. The paperwork was surprizingly easy now that everything is done online. No horrendous queues to stand in, for one thing. This almost felt like "Take Out Service"--like receiving my passport and visa in the mail the same way I receive pizza from Dominos.
Once I sign up for Aetna's Global Insurance coverage which is provided courtesy of my employer, NYU, I shall be set for the year--hopefully it will be a healthy one and I will not have to avail of the services of the the UK's Public Health System (which is supposedly very impressive overall).
