If you wish to work in the UK on a temporary basis, then you will need to apply for a UK Tier 5 (Temporary Workers) Visa.

To talk to us about obtaining a Tier 5 (Temporary Workers) Visa, please phone our office on 01212482850.

Categories of Tier 5 (Temporary Workers) Visa

There are currently five categories (or Schemes) under the Tier 5 (Temporary Workers) Visa.  These are:

  • Charity Worker Category
  • Creative and Sporting Worker Category
  • Religious Worker Category
  • Government Exchange Category
  • International Agreement Category


To be eligible to apply for a Temporary Workers Visa, you must have an offer of employment by a recognised UK sponsor.

You also must be able to show that you have held funds of £945 in an account that is acceptable to the Home Office for a period of 90 consecutive days. Alternatively, you do not have to provide any evidence of funds if your Tier 5 sponsor is A-rated and is willing to confirm on your Certificate of Sponsorship that you will not claim public funds during your stay in the UK with Tier 5 immigration permission.

The five Schemes will generally allow you to work in the UK for a period of 12-24 months.
