For young adults aged 18 to 30 from Japan, Hong Kong (with a SAR passport), South Korea and Taiwan, who wish to travel, study and work in the UK, it’s time to start preparing to apply for the Youth Mobility Scheme ballot.

Starting on 17th January 2023 at 00:01am and ending on 19th January 2023 at 00:01am in your local time, you can enter the ballot to subsequently apply for the Youth Mobility Scheme visa and reap the benefits of a working holiday in the UK.

If you require support in applying for the visa and planning your working holiday in the UK, we are here to help, please contact us here.  We partner with English language schools and hotels, restaurants and bars across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole on the South Coast of England to help you find lessons and/or work to settle into life in the UK.

If you are unsuccessful in the January ballot, a second ballot will take place in July 2023.
