Living in England, Scotland, Wales, or Northern Ireland is something everyone should have the opportunity of doing in their life. Of course, not all of us have the funds available to travel without working along the way and that is where UK working visas come in. There are a number of different visa programs available for commonwealth citizens who want to travel and work in the UK.

Finding the right UK working visas for you will likely depend on your age, your experience, and your goals. First of all, if you have ancestry in the UK, you can obtain a UK Ancestry visa, which will allow you to live and work in the UK for up to five years, without restrictions.
If you are over the age of 30, have a degree, and are looking to establish roots in the UK, then a Tier 1 Highly Skilled visa may be for you. This program allows highly skilled adults the opportunity to live and work in the United Kingdom for up to three years, with the potential for a two year extension.
Perhaps the most popular of the UK working visas is the Tier 5 Youth Mobility Scheme. This is a visa program for people between the ages of 18 and 30, and allows them to live and work wherever they like. There is no need to have a pre-arranged job or a sponsor, and there are no restrictions on the type or length of employment. This is the ideal visa program for young people who simply want to see the sights of the UK, while working to provide income for themselves along the way.
There are a number of other visas available that will allow you to enter the UK or Ireland and stay for an extended period of time, without having to work under the table while you are there.
