The Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme is under the points-based system and is for young people for certain countries eager to experience living and working in the UK for up to two years. Every year the government allocates a number of places on the scheme for each country and territory. The countries currently participating in the scheme are Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Monaco, Taiwan and Republic of Korea. On this type of visa, your government will be considered your sponsor during your stay in the UK.
