If you wish to work in the UK on a temporary basis, then you will need to apply for a UK Tier 5 (Temporary Workers) Visa.

To talk to us about obtaining a Tier 5 (Temporary Workers) Visa, please phone our office on 0121 248 2850.

Categories of Tier 5 (Temporary Workers) Visa

There are currently five categories (or Schemes) under the Tier 5 (Temporary Workers) Visa.  These are:
  • Charity Worker Category
  • Creative and Sporting Worker Category
  • Religious Worker Category
  • Government Exchange Category
  • International Agreement Category


To be eligible to apply for a Temporary Workers Visa, you must have an offer of employment by a recognised UK sponsor.

You also must be able to show that you have held funds of £945 in an account that is acceptable to the Home Office for a period of 90 consecutive days. Alternatively, you do not have to provide any evidence of funds if your Tier 5 sponsor is A-rated and is willing to confirm on your Certificate of Sponsorship that you will not claim public funds during your stay in the UK with Tier 5 immigration permission.

The five Schemes will generally allow you to work in the UK for a period of 12-24 months.

'My friends, the Patel family, were referred to Harminder Meht of Sultan Lloyd in September 2013.  We met Harminder when circumstances were very challenging and Harminder explained the available options very clearly, helpfully and with evident empathy and understanding.  Thereafter she and her colleagues helped us at every step including securing legal aid despite the fact that a previous solicitor had not identified that this was possible. Harminder was instrumental in securing the release from detention of one member of the family and following a difficult judicial review process she obtained a Home Office decision that allows the family leave to remain in the UK, to work and study here for the next 30 months. We are all delighted with Harminder and Sultan Lloyd and we are very happy to recommend Harminder and Sultan Lloyd to future users of their services.'
