⇢ Are You Eligible?

In order to apply for the extension, you will have to be living in the UK under your current Youth Mobility Visa as a national of 

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • New Zealand

In addition, you must

  • Hold a valid passport with a currently valid Youth Mobility Visa. 
  • Have not had any criminal convictions in the last 12 months

UK Visas and Immigration prefer you apply in the last 28 days of your YMS visa, however, this is not a mandatory requirement.   Given that they will take 8 weeks or longer to process a standard application, we recommend applying well before this, to ensure there are no issues with your employer or landlord. While you will still be allowed to work and rent accommodation while your extension is being processed, some employers or landlords may not feel comfortable with this, especially if you are due for a renewal of a lease or contract during this period.   

Criminal Convictions:

If you have a past criminal conviction on record, you may or may not be eligible depending on the circumstances. If this is the case, please don’t hesitate to contact us so we can assess your case.

So, are you made of the right stuff? Do you tick the appropriate boxes? If so, your dream of living in the British Isles could be close enough to touch! It’s just a matter of applying for the UK Youth Mobility Scheme visa, and that’s where we at Restless World come in.

⇢ How much does it cost?

The current cost for the UK Youth Mobility Visa is £298GBP

*Fees correct as of April 2024 and subject to change without notice. The visa price above is independent of our Restless World Visa Service fee and does not include the Immigration Health Surcharge, applicable fees, or Biometric Appointment fees payable at a processing centre in Australia. These are all UK Visa and Immigration fees that you pay to obtain your UK visa.

⇢ Mandatory Biometric Appointment
As part of the application process, youth mobility visa applicants are required to participate in a mandatory biometric appointment which involves having your fingerprints and a photo taken at a visa application centre in the UK.  This is a standard part of the process. 
⇢ Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS)

All applicants will be provided with access to the National Health Service (NHS) for the duration of your visa. You will still need to pay for certain types of services such as prescriptions, dental treatment, eye test, and assisted conception. The immigration health surcharge of £776 is payable at the time of purchasing the UK Youth Mobility Scheme visa.  You should take your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) when you access health care in the UK.

⇢ A Word of Warning
Unless you pay the priority fee, your application is likely to take 8 weeks or more.  Do not plan to travel during the processing time, or your application can be withdrawn.    If you make a mistake on your visa application or unknowingly fail to provide the correct supporting documentation, your application will be refused, and UK Visas and Immigration will not refund your visa fee. Restless World’s experienced staff have an in-depth knowledge of UK visa categories as well as processes and will ensure that your application is a successful one.

*All NV/NF refunds are assessed on a case by case basis. Visas rejected based on past criminal records, traffic offences, previous refusals, any undisclosed information or historical immigration discrepancies relevant to your application are not eligible for a refund from Restless World. We reserve the right to waive the NV/NF guarantee should your circumstances warrant it, but this will be agreed in writing before progressing with your application. All applicants with a criminal conviction and/or traffic offences are not entitled to the NV/NF guarantee.

**All applicants are required to disclose any/all past criminal and/or serious traffic related offences and previous visa refusals for any country. Failure to disclose this information could lead to your application being rejected by the UK Visas and Immigration and could lead to a subsequent 10-year ban. Restless World cannot be held responsible for rejections or bans imposed by the UK Visas and Immigration on account of undisclosed information. If your visa application is rejected or denied based on a mistake made by Restless World staff, your original service fee will be refunded in full, and Restless World will pay for the cost of your re-application. Visa re-application is only applicable if we deem your application to be valid upon the correction of the original mistake made. In the event of an approved NV/NF re-application, we can only re-apply for the same visa as the original denied application (you cannot switch visa categories).

***The following visa services are exempt from the NV/NF guarantee: UK Visit Visa, UK Charity Visa, Registration for British Nationality, UK EEA Family Permit.
