Youth Mobility Scheme Visa

Young people aged 18 to 30 from a specific list of countries can experience living and working in the UK for up to 2 years by applying for the Youth Mobility Scheme visa. This visa is one of the sub-routes of Temporary Work visas, but unlike the other categories, the Youth Mobility Scheme visa does not require a Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS).

Your Youth Mobility Scheme visa will be granted for two years.


You can apply for a Youth Mobility Scheme visa if you are from one of the following countries:

• Australia
• Canada
• Monaco
• New Zealand
• San Marino

You must be selected in the Youth Mobility Scheme visa ballot before you can apply for your visa if you are from:

You can also apply if you are a:

Finances to Support Yourself

You must have at least £2,530 for your maintenance in your bank account for 28 consecutive days before you can apply.

Other requirements

You may need to undergo a tuberculosis test if you are applying from a listed country.


Once you receive your Youth Mobility Scheme visa, you should note that the following conditions will apply to your stay in the UK.

You will be permitted to do the following activities on your Youth Mobility Scheme visa:
