Step 1

Step 2

Welcome Phone Call:
After payment is made we will give you a call within 2 working days to welcome you to the program and answer any questions you may have. Then we can move on to the next step of the application.

Step 3

Visa application:
After the welcome phone call you will be sent the UK visa guidelines for either the youth mobility or ancestry visa (your choice).
We will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to complete the application. You will fill in your details, book a biometrics appointment (fingerprints and eye scan) and then pay the visa fee.

Once you have attended your biometrics appointment you will need to either drop in or courier your completed visa application to IEP.

IEP will review the application to make sure there are no errors and then submit it to the UK Border Agency on your behalf.

NOTE: If the UK Border Agency finds an error on your application they will deny your application and not disclose where the error was made. You will have to re-submit the application and pay the visa fee again. IEP GUARANTEES you get the visa on the first go!

Criminal Record Form:
If you have ever been arrested, convicted or given diversion you will need to obtain a police check and additional documents to support your application. IEP will be able to advise how you should go about obtaining these.

Step 4

Support Docs:
You will be sent some support documentation outlining how to open a bank account, obtain a tax file number and links on where to find accommodation and employment.

Step 5

Work Visa Issued:
Your passport will be returned back to you by the UK Border Agency. You will need to send IEP a copy of your work visa. We ask you to do this so we can review it to make sure it is issued for the right duration of time.

Step 6

Now that you have the work visa you will need to get travel insurance to cover you for your time overseas. IEP has comprehensive policies on offer. For a quote please contact us at
