UK Tier 5 Visa Now Open to Taiwanese

It was announced late last year that Taiwan will join Canada, Japan, Monaco, Australia and New Zealand in the UK’s youth mobility scheme.

Taiwanese citizens aged 18 to 30 who have already received a certificate of sponsorship from the Taiwanese National Youth Commission will now be able to obtain a UK visa and live and work in the UK for up to two years.

The criteria for consideration include:

  • Holding a Taiwanese passport with a personal ID number;
  • Receiving a certificate of sponsorship from the Taiwanese National Youth Commission;
  • Having £1 600 available in an appropriate bank account no less than one month before submission.

The initial registration period has now closed but a second period of registration will be announced should the 1000 places not be filled from the first registration period.
