Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme - important changes to the Rules!

20 January 2012

As previously published, Taiwan has now been added to the countries eligible to apply under the Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme. However, prospective applicants  should bear in mind that their application will be dealt on a first come first serve basis and  there is a strict limit on number of places available for each participating country.

 From 9 January 2012 these allocation figures are listed against each country in Appendix G. Please see below:

  • Australia - 32,500 places
  • Canada - 5,000 places
  • Japan - 1,000 places
  • New Zealand - 10,000 places
  • Monaco - 1,000 places
  • Taiwan - 1,000 places

In addition, the Statement of Changes to the Immigration Rules has introduced the concept of “deemed” sponsorship status whereby all countries listed under Appendix G are considered to be low risk countries by the UK Border Agency  and as such  their nationals no longer need to apply and provide  the British Embassy with a Certificate of Sponsorship as part of their entry clearance application with the exception of Taiwan.
