How can I work in UK?

The UK working holiday visa is called the Youth Mobility Scheme visa (formerly known as the Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme visa). It allows Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, Monaco, Hong Kong, Republic of Korea, San Marino, Iceland and Taiwan passport holders to live and work in the UK for up to two years. If you meet the ancestorial criteria and are a Commonwealth or British Overseas citizen, you might also qualify for a UK Ancestry visa which allows you work in the UK for up to five years.
