The International Agreement Worker visa (T5) is a temporary worker visa. You can apply if you'll be contracted to do work covered by international law or treaty while in the UK. This visa has replaced the Tier 5 (Temporary Worker - International Agreement) visa.

If you or your family are from the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein

If you or your close family member started living in the UK before 1 January 2021, you may be able to apply to the free EU Settlement Scheme. Otherwise you need a visa to work in the UK. Irish citizens do not need to apply for a visa or to the EU Settlement Scheme.

International Agreement Worker visa (T5) key requirements

You can apply for a Temporary Worker - International Agreement Worker visa (T5) if you have:

  • a certificate of sponsorship reference number
  • enough money to support yourself in the UK - you'll usually need to have at least £1,270 available (unless you're exempt)

You must also meet all the other eligibility requirements. Please contact us for initial assessment to determine your eligibility, and to discuss the options.

Certificate of sponsorship

A certificate of sponsorship is a unique reference number that holds information about you and your job. It’s not an actual certificate or paper document. Your sponsor will give you the certificate of sponsorship. Your sponsor will also give you the information they used on your certificate about your job, your working hours for example. Your sponsor must be recognised by the UK government to issue certificates of sponsorship.

Your certificate of sponsorship is valid for 3 months from the date it is assigned to you.

Your partner and children

Your partner and children can apply to join you or to stay in the UK as your 'dependants' if they're eligible. If their application is successful, their visa will end on the same date as yours.
