You must apply for a visa at your local British Embassy or Consulate. You cannot
apply to remain as a working holiday maker from within the UK.
You will have to meet the particular requirements at the British Embassy or Consulate.
It has in the past been the case that it has been easier to gain entry in a Country
with a high average standard of living. It remains to be seen if following the changes
in 2003 there will be more working holidaymaker applications from people in poorer Countries.
If your visa is granted there will be an endorsement in
your passport granting you leave to enter the UK. This is called an entry
clearance certificate. You can request that this visa is valid for up to three months.
It is unlikely that you will be refused entry to the UK if the visa is issued. Normally,
people are refused entry if you have made false statements when you made your
application or failed to disclose important facts in your application.
It is also possible that the application will be refused if your
circumstances have changed since you made the application.
It is probably a good idea to have a copy of your visa application with you in your
hand luggage when you arrive in the UK in case you are questioned by an immigration officer.
If you are an employer looking to hire working holidaymakers or if you are a working holidaymaker looking for work why not try the workpermit.com Employment Center.
