Seasonal Worker Visa UK

You can apply for a Seasonal Worker Visa to come to the UK to work in horticulture for up to 6 months.

Requirements

You must be 18 or over when you apply and have both a certificate of sponsorship reference number and enough money to support yourself in the UK – usually £1,270 (unless you’re exempt).

Certificate of Sponsorship

A Certificate of Sponsorship is a reference number that holds information on the job and your own personal details. It’s not an actual certificate or paper document. It’s a number that corresponds to the job you’ve been offered. 

As well as the reference number, your sponsor will also give you information to help you to apply for the visa, for example how much you’ll be paid. This helps to prove you meet the job and salary requirements for the visa. 

How long can you stay?

You can stay in the UK for up to 6 months.

You can enter the UK as soon as your visa is valid (up to 14 days before the start date of your job).

How much does a Seasonal Worker Visa cost?

The visa costs £298 to apply for, and you will also need to prove that you have enough money to support yourself in the UK.

The amount to support yourself is usually £1,270 (unless you are exempt). Also, you will need to have had this money in your bank account for 28 days in a row, and within 31 days of applying for a Seasonal Worker Visa. 

However, if your sponsor is going to cover your costs to help support you upon your arrival in the UK, then you will not need to provide proof of your own funds. This will be shown on your Certificate of Sponsorship once your sponsor has completed the section dedicated to it.
