Also referred to as the ‘Working Holiday’ visa, this is our most popular UK visa package. The Tier 5 Youth Mobility Visa package is available to Australians, New Zealanders and Canadians and gives you the amazing opportunity to live and work for a full two years in the UK, that’s right, TWO years! Most other working holiday visas only allow one year, that means more travel and good times for you!
Around one-in-five visa applications get rejected, so getting it right the first time will avoid costly delays. Don’t leave yours to chance, our awesome visa consultants will guide you every step of the way. They will complete your visa application for you, check all your supporting documents and only submit when everything is in order. Spare yourself the ‘will I, won’t I get it’ stress and trawling through countless confusing forms by letting us ensure your application goes through first time around. You will have your own dedicated visa consultant plus unlimited advice and support via email and phone calls (the British High Commission charge around $3.50 per min for this). Furthermore we offer a ‘No-Visa No-Fee’ guarantee – so if you don’t get your visa we’ll refund your package!
Please note that this package does not include the ‘Entry Clearance’ Fee and ‘International Health Surcharge’, which is payable directly to the Government once your application is complete and ready to submit. This will then entitle you to unlimited access to NHS healthcare in the UK for the full duration of your visa. This means that you will receive fee-free access to NHS hospitals and GPs, as well as heavily subsidised dentistry.
To qualify for the Tier 5 Youth Mobility Visa, you must be:
• A New Zealand, Australian or Canadian passport holder
• Be over 18 & under 31 when you apply
• Have the equivalent of £1,890 in available funds when you apply
We offer a ‘No Visa No Fee’ Promise – so if you apply for your visa and don’t get it, we’ll refund your package. That’s how confident we are that with our help you’ll have your visa stamped in your passport and back in your hands!

Organised or in complete disorder? Excited or at panic central? Can’t wait to jump on the plane or are you looking at the cancellation terms! Whatever stage or emotional state you are in there is always something incredibly reassuring in talking to someone who understands where you’re coming from. Whether you have a million and one questions or just want to hear more about what lies ahead, this is a great chance to get advice, answers, ideas and inspiration.
If there’s one area that will have you reaching for the Calmomile tea it is the topic of UK Bank Accounts. With opening criteria that changes with the tides, it is no wonder this area has many on the brink of a mental breakdown! Luckily BritBound has been around for years, we know how the banks work and we can go to the very top if we need to get things fixed for you! We’ll ensure you get a UK account! There are a number of options available; the choice of bank account we recommend will be determined on your passport and visa type. However all options we offer are a same day account.
This is something you may not even have thought about yet…how do you get your money from one country to another? How do you ensure that when you get here you have a bank account with funds you can access? Because using ATM cards overseas can be costly, very costly. Well the answer is with an International Money Transfer. But transferring money can be an expensive undertaking. Banks usually charge a fee to carry this out for you; then the receiving bank charges too. Ouch! There are lots of options out there but as a one off transaction you really cannot beat the exchange rate of an online money transfer company.
All of our packages include a UK Sim Card and we provide your number straight away so you can give it out to your family, friends and any employers or recruitment agencies even before you leave. Being contactable from the word go is a huge benefit especially when it comes to getting work here and pretty sure your nearest and dearest will be relieved to know they can get hold of you once you’ve arrived and turned your phone on. Your SIM will be waiting for you to pick up on arrival into the BritBound Base. Or you can upgrade and select for it to be posted to you home address before departure.
All of the SIMs are mainstream network providers. There are a whole host of SIM brands that piggy back off the networks – trouble is many are here today gone tomorrow brands that look like a great deal but are actually riddled with hidden charges and fees. But if you are looking to live and work here for an extended period you need a network that has great coverage and competitive contract offerings. These SIMs are set up on a Pay As You Go system but the numbers are portable so when you have enough credit history and can move onto a contract you won’t need to change numbers.
It is a legal requirement when you work in the UK to have an NI number so we will ensure that you get your number set up as quickly as possible. Your NI number is similar to a social security or tax file number and works as a unique ID number that you have for the rest of your life. It also gives you access to a whole range of services including a reciprocal health scheme with our National Health Service.
