If you’re taking your skills as a professional contractor overseas to the UK, there are a few things it is necessary to consider and prepare first. Among what is arguably the most important of these is having your UK visa properly sorted before you take off.
As with most things travel-related, applying for this important documentation can be tedious if you’re not across what options there are and what you are eligible for. If you are not fortunate enough to have a British passport, there are still a few UK visa options you can enter the UK on. The most common of these are Ancestry, Spousal or the Tier 5 visas.
The British ancestry Visa is available to Australian or New Zealand citizens who can prove one of their grandparents was born in the UK, which includes Southern Ireland prior to 31 March 1922.
The Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme visa is a great option for Australian and New Zealanders aged between 18 and 30. For those who want to work and travel in the UK, this visa can be applied for up until their 31st birthday as long as you have no dependents. The tier 5 visa is the quickest and cheapest visa available that would allow the approved applicant to work in the UK for up to two years.
