Tier 5 (Temporary Worker - Charity Workers) category is for people coming to the UK to do voluntary (unpaid) work for a charity. The work must be directly related to the work of your sponsor's organisation.

If you are coming to work temporarily in the United Kingdom as a charity worker, you should only be doing voluntary activities and not paid work. You should intend to carry out fieldwork directly related to the purpose of the sponsoring organisation.

In assigning a Certificate of Sponsorship, the sponsor will have guaranteed that you:

  • intend to undertake voluntary fieldwork directly related to the purpose of the charity;
  • will not be paid or receive other payment for your work (except reasonable expenses outlined in section 44 of the National Minimum Wage Act);
  • will will not take up a permanent position; and
  • will comply with the conditions of your permission to stay and leave the United Kingdom when it expires.

Visa is granted for a maximum period of 12 months, or the time given on the Certificate of Sponsorship plus 14 days after the end date given on the Certificate of Sponsorship and up to 14 days before the start date, whichever is the shorter.

If you are outside the UK, you may have to apply for entry clearance (visa) to the British Embassy/High Commission/Consulate before you can come to the UK under Tier 5 (Temporary Worker - Charity Workers) category.
