When salaries are paid? In my country are paid every month .
I have heard that in U.K. Is possible to get paid even every week. Is that true ? Or it's just a rare case?

Depends what you do.

Some places it might be every week (typically minimum wage jobs), some places might be fortnightly, in rare cases it's every 4 weeks, but for the majority it's the last Thursday or Friday of the month.

It depends on the company. Some pay every week, others every two weeks, others on the same day each month, others every 4 Fridays, others on the last Friday of every month etc. Totally depends on what the company wants to do.

But if an employer pay every month , is possible to ask to get paid every week or bi-weekly ? Or is it something that's better not to ask ? Because for expats getting paid every week would be wonderful especially when you just moved from your country and you face a lot of expenses (rents, deposit ect.)

Not normally. No. You might be able to get an advance, but it'll depend on them.

In my experience, most professional jobs pay monthly (UK).
