Temporary routes
  1. Temporary routes

    There are various immigration routes which allow people to come to the UK for a temporary period of up to two years. 

    The most well-known category is the Youth Mobility Scheme which gives young people from certain countries aged between 18-30 an opportunity to come to the UK for a period of two years to study, work or be self-employed (subject to some restrictions). 

    Our team can also advise on other temporary routes, including the categories Charity Workers, Secondment Worker, Service Supplier, Government Authorised Exchange, Religious worker or Creative and Sporting.

    The Government Authorised Exchange route is a popular option for those who have been offered a work experience placement or internship with a UK company which will last up to 12 months.

    We will also be advising in relation to the new High Potential Individual route, which allows applicants who have graduated from one of the top 50 global universities in the previous five years to come to the UK for two or three years without the need for a job offer or sponsorship. This route launches on 30 May 2022.
