  • How Does The UK Work Visa Work ?

    • The whole process starts with filling out out our online application form and uploading your supporting documents. Our licensed working holiday visa migration consultant will work with you on a one-to-one basis, making sure all of your supporting documents are 100% correct, which will guarantee you get your visa the first time you apply. As part of the application process we will help you pick the start date for when your visa will begin. Keep in mind that this date must be within three months of when you complete your application.
    • Once completed we will book your biometric appointment. This appointment is required by the government and is where they collect a copy of your finger prints, which will be used when arriving in the UK on your visa. You’ll be asked to give (usually one finger) to them when being processed by customs. The entire appointment takes all of about 30 - 45 minutes (be there 15 minutes early) and you will need to bring you supporting documentation. Before you attend your biometric appointment you’ll need to pay the Immigration Healthcare Surcharge (IHS), if applicable to you (if you are from Australia or New Zealand there will be no fee).

    Important Information About The UK Bank Account Biometric Residence Permits

    The Biometric Residence Permit is proof of the holder's right to stay, work or study in the UK. It can also be used as a form of identification (for example, if you wish to open a bank account in the UK). The holder is not required to carry their permit at all times, but they must show it at the border, together with their passport, when travelling outside of, and when returning, to the UK.

     

    What Is A Biometric Residence Permit?

    The biometric residence permit is a residence permit which holds a migrant’s biographic details (name, date and place of birth) and biometric information (facial image and fingerprints), and shows their immigration status and entitlements while they remain in the UK. Biometric residence permits are issued to foreign nationals from outside the European Economic Area who are granted leave to enter the UK for more than six months.

     

    When Will I Receive My Biometric Residence Permit?

    If you are successful in your application to enter the UK for more than six months, you will obtain a biometric residence permit upon arrival in the UK.

     

    How Do I Travel To The UK Without My Biometric Residence Permit?

    Successful applicants will be issued with a vignette in their passport which is valid for 30 days from your intended travel date. The vignette is proof only of your permission to enter the UK and will allow you to travel to the UK. If you do not travel to the UK within this 30-day period, your visa will expire and you will need to apply for another 30-day visa. You will have to pay a fee for this. Your full leave conditions are contained on your Biometric Residence Permit, which you must collect on arrival in the UK.

     

    How Do I Obtain My Biometric Residence Permit Upon Arrival In The UK?

    You must collect your biometric residence permit within ten days of arrival in the UK from the Post Office branch detailed in your decision letter. If you do not collect your BRP within ten days of arrival in the UK, you may be subject to a financial penalty or cancellation. The Post Office branch you have been allocated is linked to the postcode you submitted in your visa application. We advise you not to book any non-urgent travel before you have collected your permit.

     

    How Do I Collect My Biometric Residence Permit From The Post Office?

    Your decision letter will tell you the date from which your Biometric Residence Permit will be available for collection, as well as the Post Office branch holding your Biometric Residence Permit. The date from which the biometric permit is available for collection is based upon the date you indicated as your intended travel date in your visa application.

    The Post Office branch you have been allocated is linked to the postcode you submitted in your visa application. You must collect your Biometric Residence Permit within ten days of arrival in the UK from the Post Office branch detailed in your decision letter. If you do not collect your BRP within ten days of arrival in the UK, you may be subject to a financial penalty or cancellation of your leave. You do not need to make an appointment to collect your BRP.

    When you attend the Post Office branch to collect your biometric residence permit, you must bring with you the passport or travel document which contains your 30-day visa. You should also bring your decision letter with you if possible, as it will help the Post Office staff locate your BRP quickly. If you do not bring your passport or travel document, you will not be able to collect your BRP. Details of Post Office locations offering this service and their opening times can be found at www.postoffice.co.uk. 

     

    Can I Collect My Biometric Residence Permit From A Different Post Office Branch To One In My Decision Letter?

    Yes. If you, or a nominated party who has been authorised by the home office to collect your BRP on your behalf, wishes to receive your BRP from a different branch to the one in your decision letter, you or the nominated party should go to the Post Office branch from which you would like to collect the permit and speak to a Post Office employee. You will have to pay a fee for each and every permit you wish to re-direct to that branch. Not all branches offer the collection service. Details of Post Office locations offering the service and their opening times can be found at www.postoffice.co.uk.

    If you are part of a family group that has travelled to the UK together, a family member can arrange for all the biometric residence permits belonging to that family group to be re-directed to a new Post Office branch for collection. The family member requesting re-direction must present the travel documents (and vignettes) of everyone whose BRP they wish to re-direct. They will also need to present these when collecting the permits.

     

    Important Information About The UK Bank Account

    Although most banks and building societies expect you to have a UK address before you can open a bank account, there are some specialist products, that have been designed for foreign nationals, that can be good alternatives if you do not meet standard account criteria. The WorkingHoliday Club™ has options for you!

    For those of us who have lived in the UK all our lives, having proof of residence can still be a problem if, for example, you have been renting a property with a partner and all the bills are in their name, if you've rented a room in a shared house and don't pay any bills, or if you are not on the electoral role for some reason.

    Foreign nationals were working temporarily in the UK often can only be offered a basic bank account, due to a lack of banking or credit history. But basic bank accounts will not allow you to have a cash card or a debit card. But if you go with The Working Holiday Club™, we can guarantee you a bank account that enables a functional debit MasterCard.

    Before applying for a bank account, be aware:

    • Passports, National Insurance cards and birth certificates are not classed as adequate proof of address 
    • Passports, National Identity cards and travel documents must be current
    • Letters should be of recent date, or in the case of students; the course dates stated in the letter of acceptance should reasonably correspond with the date of the bank account application
    • All documents must be original

     

    What Can I Use As A Valid Proof Of Address To Open A Bank Account?

    • Utility bills
    • A gas, water, electric, TV or landline phone bill (not mobile) that's less than three months old
    • A local authority tax bill issued within the current financial year
    • A UK bank statement that's less than three months old (Internet statements aren't acceptable)
    • A UK credit card statement that's less than three months old (Internet statements aren't acceptable)
    • A Housing Tenancy Agreement or Council Rent Book (must be current)
    • A UK photo card driving licence with current address and full paper counterpart

    About Your UK Bank Account

    Opening a UK bank account can seem nearly impossible when you first arrive. But as they say, every day without a bank account is another day without pay. The amount and types of identification required to open a bank account have increased since June 2015. If you are just about to arrive in the UK, chances are you won't have the necessary documents you need, such as a tenancy agreement or utility bills. We will get this sorted for you in your first few days. Our specialised products have been designed for working holiday makers looking to start as quickly as possible one they arrive at the UK.

    We will:

    • Do an online application for your new bank account
    • Secure an appointment for you to attend, where you can show supporting documentation
    • You will use the accommodation arranged for you before arrival as your proof of residential address

    What Is A National Insurance Number?

    Your UK National Insurance number is a unique personal identification number allocated to you, used to identify you to HM Revenue & Customs and the Department of Work and Pensions. It ensures the Government correctly records any contributions you are entitled to or any taxes that you might need to pay to the government. Your National Insurance contributions go towards the UK social security and the state pension system. Everyone who works in any capacity in the UK will need to register for a National Insurance Number.

    • You will attend an orientation session where you can use our equipment and fill out your online application for your NI
    • You will use the accommodation arranged for you before arrival as your proof of residential address so that you can receive your National Insurance forms by post

  • How To Upgrade To An Ancestral Work Visa - 5 Year UK Working Visa

    The Ancestry Visa option is for citizens of Commonwealth countries who have a grandparent who was born in the UK, including the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man. Please note that the applicant is still eligible, even if the grandparent is deceased 
     
    To qualify you must:
    • Be aged 17 or over
    • Have your birth certificate
    • Have your parents' birth certificates
    • Have your grandparents' birth certificates
    • Have adequate funds (approximately $5,000 AUD)
    Visa Conditions
     
    Successful Ancestry Visa applicants are given five years to live and work in the UK. After five years in the UK, you may be eligible to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain, and then later, UK Citizenship. Individuals who currently hold ancestry visas that are valid for four years may apply from within the UK to extend these.
    Don't risk your UK visa being declined – not only will the British High Commission ask for you to pay their $732 fee, plus any biometrics appointment fees, again, but you will also be required to complete the whole application, which will take you another four-to-five weeks.
     
     
    Our fee to do this for you is $299
