This category is for people coming to the UK to do voluntary work for a charity. The work must be directly related to the work of your sponsor's organisation. In order to apply under this category you must have a valid Tier 5 certificate of sponsorship from a licensed Tier 5 sponsor charity.
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.
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.
Workers on this visa cannot receive any payment for their work.
