» Tier 5 Temporary Workers
The Tier 5 Work Visa category is for temporary workers in the UK including the new Youth Mobility Scheme, which replaces the UK Working Holiday Visa.
The Tier 5 visa category is for people outside the United Kingdom who want to come to the country to work temporarily.
There are five categories under the Tier 5 Temporary Worker that require an applicant to have a sponsor:
Applicants under these categories must be coming to the UK with a job offer for specific, short-term employment with a licenced sponsor under the points-based system. You must have both a sponsor and a valid Certificate of Sponsorship before applying.
The Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme is for young people to experience life and work for up to two years in the United Kingdom, and does not require a sponsor or specific job offer. The young person is sponsored by his or her own Government.
If you have any questions, please request a call from a UK Visa Bureau Migration Consultant.
