The UK/Hong Kong Youth Mobility Scheme is now in its fifth year and allows young people aged between 18 and 30 to live, work or study in the UK for up to 2 years.
British Consul General to Hong Kong and Macao Andrew Heyn said:
The UK/Hong Kong Working Holiday Scheme will give young people from Hong Kong an excellent opportunity to broaden their horizons and gain overseas work experience. We hope that even more young people from Hong Kong will seize the chance to experience life and culture in the UK in the Year of the Dog.
From 2014, up to 1,000 HKSAR passport holders can qualify for the Youth Mobility Scheme each year. HKSAR passport holders need a Certificate of Sponsorship to apply for the Youth Mobility Scheme.
For further information on eligibility and how to apply for a certificate of sponsorship please visit the Hong Kong Labour Department website. Information on the Youth Mobility Scheme can be found here.
British National (Overseas) passport holders are already eligible to apply for a visa under the Youth Mobility Scheme to the UK and are not subject to any quota or sponsorship requirements.
