What Is the UK Tier 5 Visa?

"Jeannine Milano" (2019-03-05)

The primary reason why the UK Tier 5 visa exists is that in the past, many young people from Commonwealth countries came to the UK with no visa and wanted to travel and work. They worked illegally or under the table because those were the only jobs available to them. This visa makes it a lot easier to find a job, plus you will have legal protection while you are in the UK.

In addition, unlike many other working visas in the past, the UK Tier 5 visa does not require you to have a job already lined up for you when you get to the UK. If you do have a job, that is great, but if you dont, you will be able to take your time to find the job of your dreams. Some people get this visa so that they can travel for a year and Ky Nghi Dong Duong then work for a year, while others already know right where they want to live and what they want to do. It is completely up to you.

If you will be applying for the UK Tier 5 visa, then you will need to prove that you have 1,600 GBP (or the equivalent thereof) in a bank account in your name. This account needs to be established at least three months prior Ky Nghi Dong Duong to the application. You must be between the ages of 18 and 30 and able to travel without a dependent. Also, you must not have ever traveled in the UK before under another visa program.

These are fairly easy requirements for any young person to meet, but it still worth getting professional help to fill in the application and arrange the biometric scan. Once you have done this, you should expect an answer from the British High Commission within one to two weeks, after which time you will be free to travel. Then all you have to do is simply enjoy your next two years abroad.
