Tier 5 Immigration Solicitors in London

We understand that the UK visa process is time-consuming, frustrating, and confusing. For this reason, Davenport Solicitors offers bespoke advice and guidance on Tier 5 visa applications. Our immigration solicitors can assist you with your Tier 5 Temporary Worker Visa or Youth Mobility Visa application to simplify the process for you.

We can help you with any questions you may have about working in the UK under the Tier 5 points-based system.

What is Tier 5 Temporary Worker Visa?

Under the Tier 5 Temporary Worker Visa points-based system, you may be able to come to the UK with your family and work here for maximum 12 months (although this can be extended depending on your circumstance). This will enable you to work in the UK in sectors such as charity, sports, the entertainment field, and religion. To work here temporarily, you will need to be sponsored by a UK employer who has a sponsor licence and is able to issue you with a certificate of sponsorship.

What is Tier 5 Youth Mobility Visa?

The Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme allows citizens of Australia, Canada, Japan, Monaco, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Republic of Korea, and Taiwan aged 18-30 to work in the UK for up to 2 years. Some categories of overseas British citizens in the same age group can also come to the UK under this scheme. Unfortunately, this scheme will not allow you to bring your family or extend your visa.
