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.
