Working Holiday Visa - Working Holidaymaker Visa UK **NOTE - This is now withdrawn.
    The Working Holiday Maker scheme allows a Commonwealth citizen aged between 17 and 30 (inclusive) to immigrate to the United Kingdom for an extended holiday of up to two years, with the intention of taking paid work in Britain as a part of their working holiday visa. Since February 2005, the scheme has been geared towards making the employment undertaken incidental to the holiday of which it forms a part, and not the key reason behind this type of UK visa application. As a result, candidates may only work for 12 out of the 24 months duration granted.
    Additionally you may only switch to a UK work permit application if the profession in which you have a job offer features on the Skills Shortage Occupation List. However, switching to the Highly Skilled Migrant Programme or HSMP is still permitted.
    UK Immigration consultants at Global Visas can provide a complete service including immigration lawyer expertise to help you determine whether this route is right for you. We can assist you at every stage of you relocation whichever immigration visa service you choose and we can provide a complete package of on arrival services.
    A working holidays visa differs from UK work permits and skill based immigration services such as the Highly Skilled Migrant Program, in that its main purpose is not to bring immigrants to the country to fill job vacancies but to grant leave to enter the UK to those interested in working overseas. Like similar schemes in Commonwealth nations such as Australia, The scheme is intended primarily as a holiday option, with the added advantage that for half of their time in the United Kingdom, holidaymakers may earn money. Because of the nature of this visa for working in the UK, no points assessment is required and no specific job offer needs to be in place before you can come to Britain, as would be the case with a UK working permit.
    However, it is important to remember that this route to the United Kingdom may only be issued once per person and unlike a Work permit visa application to work in the UK, it cannot be extended or repeated. The scheme is temporary in nature and will not lead to indefinite leave to remain in the UK (ILR) often referred to as UK permanent residence, nor will there be any progression towards British naturalization through UK citizenship.
  1. You must be aged between 17 and 30 years, (inclusive)
  2. In order to be eligible for this type of UK work visa, applicants must be able to fulfil the requirements set out below:
  3. Applicants must be either a commonwealth citizen, a citizen of a British Dependent territory or a British overseas citizen.
  4. Employment must not be the primary motive for living and working in the UK.
  5. You must be either single, or married to a person who qualifies for the scheme in their own right and will be joining you on the holiday. You do not have any dependant children who are either over the age of five years, or will be before the holiday ends
  6. Like HSMP UK visas of this kind require you to be able to support yourself throughout the duration of your holiday and for your return trip, without recourse to public funding.
  7. You must intend to leave the country at the end of the duration of your visa.
    You may only work in Britain under this class of British visa for immigration for a maximum period of two years from the date you enter the country. Any time spent outside the country during this period, once the permit has been granted, will be counted as part of the two-year duration.
    Types of employment:
    Visas for immigration to the UK of this kind allow a holder to undertake most types of work whether paid or unpaid voluntary work. However, working holidaymaker visa applicants are not permitted to begin or run their own business venture or work as a professional sportsperson. The itinerary of the holiday, in terms of when work is undertaken and which parts of the 2-year duration constitute a holiday are left entirely to the preference of the applicant. However, within the 24 month period, it is only permitted to work a maximum of 12 months.
    Spouse immigration is permitted under this scheme, but your spouse or unmarried partner will need to qualify under the regulations of the scheme in their own right. The scheme does not work like a dependency visa or a marriage visa, based on being a partner or dependant of someone with settled status as a permanent resident of the United Kingdom. Each person embarking upon this immigration service must be able to demonstrate that they independently satisfy the conditions of the scheme.
