Youth Mobility Scheme extended from 30 to 35


About the Youth Mobility Scheme

The Youth Mobility Scheme (YMS) allows eligible individuals from specific countries, including Australia, to live and work in the UK for up to two years. As of January 2024, the visa will be available for individuals aged 18-35.

The process is pretty straightforward. Here's a short list of eligibility criteria.

  • Must be aged 18 to 35

  • Hold a valid Australian passport

  • Cannot have dependents

  • Prove ability to support oneself financially during the stay

  • Arrange for adequate healthcare coverage

  • Apply for a Tier 5 (Youth Mobility Scheme) visa
