My application for my visa has been approved! I am officially all ready to fly to London at the end of August. Under this visa, I have permission to be in the UK for two years as a Tier 5 (Youth Mobility) Migrant.
For anyone from Canada, Australia or other qualifying countries, the process wasn’t as bad as I expected. I hear applying for the BUNAC visa is a bit more difficult. The most painful part was the ~$1200 fee comprised of application and health surcharges. There was a fee to use the Ottawa Visa Application Centre (VAC) as well.
Luckily I was home when the New York UK Visas & Immigration Office returned my Canadian passport via DHL mail service. All in all, the process from start to finish took just over a week.
Now all I have to do is collect my Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) from the local collection point from where I will be staying in London after I arrive.
I’m excited to meet new people, and if any UK bloggers feel the same, it would be great to eventually meet up/collaborate!
Anyone in or around London, England from September to December?
