Get Nz and Uk government to collaborate for T5 visa leniency due to COVID-19

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!


Thousands of young kiwis have lost out on their once in a lifetime opportunity of taking a 2 year working holiday in the uk.

 

HERE WE CAN COLLABORATE TO SIGN TO ASK THE GOVERNMENTS TO  CREATE ACTIONS TO ASSIST US IN CONTINUING OR REFUNDING OUR VISAS THAT WERE NOT BEGUN OR CUT SHORT DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS GLOBAL PANDEMIC. 

 

For majority of T5 youth mobility visas this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, it is an extremely expensive, challenging and time consuming process. 

For those who have already landed in the UK we are requesting a restart of our visas so that we can continue our working holidays when the environment of the world allows it as safe to do so, we were called home by the Nz government and a vast majority wish to return to our lives and jobs in the uk ASAP. Un for some their visas have the potential of expiring before the opportunity arises and is solely dependent on the freedom of movement and economic demand with both countries. 

 

For those who have not yet landed or are within 3 months of their vignettes, we are requesting if they are no longer in the UK or couldn't arrive to begin with a complete refund of ALL fees including the immigration health surcharge. 

 

The cost of this visa, the move, setup of life and flights can be around 10000NZD and is an exorbitant amount of money for youth in New Zealand. We work extremely hard to get these, we have to qualify and we have to offer a contribution as a temporary resident. 

We are devastated and are begging for the opportunity to continue this relationship with both nations, representing New Zealanders overseas and contributing to the partnership between the UK, their workforce, their economy and culture. 

 

Every signature is to vouch for ongoing opportunities for young new zealanders, now and for future intercontinental relationships.
