Uvision Australia don’t only offer migration services for migrants to enter our country, but we also offer the same services for Australian citizens who are looking into migrating for working, holiday or studying purposes to the United Kingdom (UK) and Canada.
The Working Holiday program (also known as Youth Mobility Scheme) encourages cultural exchange by allowing young Australians (aged 18-30 years), to have an extended holiday in the UK and/or Canada. (During these holidays they may engage in short term work or study.)
United Kingdom (UK)
The UK government allocates a number of places on the scheme for each country and territory.
Applicants who are granted residence under the Youth Mobility Scheme are allowed to live and work in the UK. This visa is granted for two (2) years and no further or subsequent grant can be made under this category.
The basic requirement for this visa is to score a minimum of 50 points for attributes including sponsorship, age and available maintenance (funds).
Successful applicants will be free to undertake any type of employment throughout their stay in the UK with the exception of self-employment (subject to certain exceptions), working as a professional sportsperson or as a doctor in training. Visa holders may also engage in privately funded studies, voluntary work.
Canada's International Exchange Program visa allows eligible foreign students and young workers from designated countries to work and live in Canada temporarily in order to learn new skills and gain valuable exposure to the Canadian culture.
International Experience Canada enables Australian citizens between the ages of 18 and 30 to:
- stay in Canada for up to two years;
- legally work in Canada;
- experience another culture.
In order to qualify for a Working Holiday visa, applicants must meet the requirements depending on the program.
If you wish to find out more information on requirements or receive a free assessment to determine your eligibility to work and visit abroad contact us today for a free consultation.
Uvision Australia is a private Migration firm providing immigration advice & representation, and is not affiliated with the UK or Canadian Government. All decisions for granting a visa remain with the relevant Government Authority subject to the applicant lodging a valid application and meeting the relevant criteria.
