One of the first things you will need to consider when planning a move to the UK is whether or not you will have the right to work. For those of you that don’t hold a British or EU passport, it will mean having to apply for a visa to work in the UK.
The visa categories and qualifying criteria are constantly under review in the UK, so it’s always best to seek up to date information before making your decision. The most typical visas available to people wanting to live and work in the UK are Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme and UK Ancestral Visas.
The Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme (YMS) visa is the ideal solution for Australians and New Zealanders aged between 18 and 30 (inclusive), who are wanting to work and travel in the UK.
