UK Border Agency issues its first Youth Mobility Scheme Visa in Korea

The Youth Mobility Scheme is a reciprocal scheme which allows eligible South Koreans aged between 18 and 30 to live and work in the UK for up to 2 years. They don’t need a job offer first. Every year an allocation of 1,000 visas will be available for interested South Koreans.


First of all, eligible South Koreans have to register for a Certificate of Sponsorship from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MOFAT) in Korea.


The application of Ms Schin was one of the first two YMS applications to be received at the visa application centre in Seoul on August 6th. Ms Schin has been already been studying curating at the Royal College of Art in London and wished to have a gap year for work experience in the UK.


Without doubt, the Youth Mobility Scheme offers excellent opportunities for young people from both Korea and the UK to experience new cultures and reach their full potential. We look forward to more South Koreans taking advantage of this opportunity and making this application through us.


If you are a South Korean and want to come to the UK or are a British Citizen wanting to go to South Korea under this scheme, or any other immigration application, please contact us or call us on 0845 126 1350.
