Getting into the United Kingdom has not always been as easy as it should, and the British are notorious for turning people away at their borders. If you don't enter the country with an appropriate visa, you could find yourself on the next plane right off the island! For Commonwealth citizens who are between the ages of 18 and 30, a Working Holiday Visa is the way to make sure you are gain entry to the country and are also able to work while you are there.

Some people might tell you that the only way to get a job in the UK is to try and work "cash in hand", but that is no longer the case. If you are an English-speaking citizen of a Commonwealth country, have money in the bank, and pass the other application requirements, you will be given a two years visa that allows you to travel freely and work in any job you may find in the UK. This means that you don't have to work under the table, and you can find a good job with good benefits.
The Working Holiday Visa is only for younger people (there are other visas available for those over the age of 30), and is extremely popular because it suits the needs of younger people. You don't need to have a job lined up before you get there, you don't need a sponsor or a family member waiting to pick you up at the airport either.
With a Working Holiday Visa, you can arrive in the UK, find a place to live, find a job, and start building a life. You may choose to spend your entire two years living and working in London, or travel throughout England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, working whenever and wherever you want to.
