The UK government has committed to providing opportunities for young people and facilitating cultural exchange.

The Youth Mobility Scheme is a temporary route which provides young people, from participating countries, with an opportunity to experience life in the UK. The maximum length of time someone can be on this visa is two years.

Eligible applicants must be aged between 18 and 30 at the time of application, have £1,890 in savings and citizens of countries within the arrangements or are a British Overseas Citizen, British Overseas Territories Citizen or British National (Overseas). 

The scheme exists between the two countries, which enables young British citizens to benefit from similar opportunities overseas. 

The UK currently operates eight youth mobility scheme arrangements with Australia, Canada, Japan, Monaco, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Republic of Korea and Taiwan.
