You can only stay in the United Kingdom for two years as a working holidaymaker. We will count any time you spend outside the United Kingdom during that period as part of the two years.
What type of work can I do?
There are no restrictions on the type of paid work you can do. You may do any paid work you choose for as long as you want while you are here, but you should still intend to take a holiday during your stay. You may also do unpaid voluntary work that meets the terms of the National Minimum Wage exemption for voluntary workers.
Can I extend my stay as a working holidaymaker?
You can apply to stay longer if you satisfy these conditions: - you entered the United Kingdom with entry clearance as a working holidaymaker; and
- an extension would not make your stay longer than two years.
We will not give you permission to stay as a working holidaymaker if you did not enter the United Kingdom with an entry clearance as a working holidaymaker.
Can I extend my stay as a Work Permit holder?
You can apply to extend your stay as a Work Permit holder if you satisfy these conditions: - you have been in the United Kingdom for more than 12 months as a working holidaymaker; and - you continue to meet the conditions for holding a work permit.
