Length of stay

Usually until one month after the period of work stated on your certificate of sponsorship, and up to 1 year with extensions.

Funds

Tier 5 Charity Worker visa applicants must have funds of at least £945, unless their Tier 5 sponsor can guarantee their maintenance with the UK Home Office. Only 'A rated' sponsors have this option.

Restrictions

Workers on this visa cannot receive any payment for their work.
