The Youth Mobility Scheme is a form of Tier 5 Visa which allows sponsored young people from participating countries or territories to experience a life in the UK and work here for up to two years.
This only applies to a small number of countries whose nationals are eligible to apply for this visa. If the visa is granted, it will allow you to enter and work in the UK in a temporary role without a job offer.
There are a number of different type of Tier 5 Youth Mobility Visa, including the government exchange route which allows nationals of participating countries to work for foreign governments in temporary, organised schemes.
Our immigration lawyers can advise you on whether you are eligible for a Youth Mobility Visa. One of our lawyers will check your age, nationality and qualifications against the Youth Mobility Scheme requirements.
He/she will also prepare a Letter of Representation for your application. This letter details your case and its merits as well as referencing relevant UK immigration laws in support of your application. He/she will also ensure that your documents are sufficient and complete your application form to the highest standard before submission. Get in touch now and one of our immigration lawyers will be able to provide you with more information before beginning your application.
