Thinking about taking a year out for a working holiday in the UK? Here’s a few things you’ll need.

Do you want to go on a holiday in the UK and work at the same time? Through the UK work visa or Tier 5 (Youth Mobility Scheme), you can go on a working holiday in the UK.

How to Apply for a UK Working Holiday Visa

To apply, you must first check for eligibility. If you are aged 18 to 30 and lives in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Monaco, New Zealand, Republic of Korea or Taiwan, you can apply for the UK working Visa. The same is true if you are a British citizen or national overseas or a British overseas territories citizen.

Only first-time applicants can apply. If you’ve already been in the UK under a similar scheme, you’re no longer eligible for the UK working Visa. You can’t apply if you have children who lives with you, and whom you are feeling really responsible for.

If eligible, you need to provide a current passport or other ID valid for travel, and proof of income or bank statement, showing that you have a savings equivalent to at least £2,800. Depending on your circumstances, you might be required of additional documents.

Any documents that are not in English or Welsh must come with a certified translation. If you hail from a country where a tuberculosis test is required, you also need to provide the test results.

Once you lodge your application, you need to book a Biometric appointment. This is where the government collects a copy of your fingerprint to be used on your Biometric Residence Permit when you arrive in the UK.

Visa application should be lodged outside the UK.

It is important to note that you must start your application at least 3 months before your planned departure.
