The religious worker category is for people coming to the UK to work temporarily as a religious worker.

Religious workers can do:

  • preaching, pastoral work and non-pastoral work;
  • work in the UK in the same way you are working in an overseas organisation (although your duties in the UK may be different). The job should be done during a break from your job overseas; or
  • work in a religious order with community which involves a permanent commitment like a monastery or convent. The work in a religious order must be in the order itself or outside work directed by the order. You can apply if you are a novice whose training means taking part in the daily community life of the order.

Before you apply under the religious category, you must have:

  • a sponsor; and
  • a valid certificate of sponsorship.

When you apply you are awarded points based on your sponsorship and available maintenance (funds).
