The Tier 5 - Youth Mobility Scheme allows young people to come and experience life in the United Kingdom for up to two (2) years. Young UK nationals will also be able to benefit from similar opportunities in participating countries.
Applicants who are granted residence under the Tier 5 - Youth Mobility Scheme are allowed to live and work in the UK. This visa is granted for two (2) years and no further or subsequent grant can be made under this category.
Successful applicants will be free to undertake any type of employment throughout their stay in the UK with the exception of self-employment (subject to certain exceptions), working as a professional sportsperson or as a doctor in training. Visa holders may also engage in privately funded studies, voluntary work and au pair placements.
In addition to meeting the basic visa requirements, applicants must also pass a points-based assessment. Points can be claimed in areas related to an applicant's age, English or French language ability, work experience, qualifications and ability to adapt to life in Canada. The current pass mark for the Federal Skilled Worker visa is 67 points.
