Tier 5 - Temporary Workers Visa Basic Requirements

The basic requirement for this visa is to score a minimum of 40 points for "Certificate of Sponsorship" and available maintenance (funds).

In the first instance, a prospective sponsor will apply to the UK Home Office in order to be granted a licence. When successfully licensed, a sponsor can apply for a number of certificates of sponsorship, which they can then present to the people whom they intend to sponsor. Once a prospective employee has been allocated a certificate of sponsorship, he or she will be eligible to apply for UK entry clearance.

Within this category, subcategories include visas for creative and sports professionals, charity and religious workers, government authorised exchanges as well as youth mobility schemes.

Tier 5 - Temporary Workers Visa Entitlements

The maximum duration of leave is 24 months and switching to other visa categories is not permitted. Eligible dependents will be admitted but will only be permitted to work in the UK if the principle applicant is afforded more than 12 months leave.
