From 7 March 2013, the UKBA at the visa application centre in Taiwan will accept Tier 5 (youth mobility scheme) visa applications from Taiwanese nationals.

The youth mobility scheme visa allows those eligible Taiwanese nationals aged between 18 and 30 to live and work in the UK for up to two years.

Those who wish to apply for a youth mobility scheme visa will first meet the eligibility requirements and register for a certificate of sponsorship through the Youth Development Administration iYouth website between 19 February and 25 February. An allocation of 500 certificates of sponsorship will be made available at this time. A further 500 will be made available and allocated in May 2013.
