T5 Youth Mobility

Officially part of the Appendix T5 (Temporary Worker) Youth Mobility Route. Replaced Part 6A Tier 5 (Youth Mobility Scheme) Temporary Worker.


The T5 Youth Mobility Visa is an overall great all-rounder visa option if you are a national of one of the countries participating in the scheme, and you are aged between 18 and 30.


The T5 Youth Mobility Visa has a distinct advantage over most other UK visa categories thanks to the great flexibility it offers. You may study, work, set-up business, and the visa fee is  relatively affordable. Furthermore, your visa will not become invalid if you change the nature of your activities while in the UK.


The downsides of the T5 Youth Mobility Visa are that it is limited to 2 years, that you can only benefit from it once in your lifetime, and that there are strict quotas if you are a national from certain participating countries.
