    Default extending a working holiday visa

    I am 23, from the uk and 7 months into my one year working holiday visa. I have a job as a fitness instructor, and I would like to continue working beyond its expiry date. Whats the best way for me to stay on for another year or so, whilst I decide if I want to stay permanently? I cannot get another holiday visa, and I don't think its possible to extend it. Should I apply for residency now or approach my emplyer for sponsorship?
    Many thanks.

    Default extending a working holiday visa

    If you want to extend your stay for another year or so, then you could apply for a work permit.

    If a fitness instructor isnt permissable as a skilled shortage under the work permit rules, then your only other option would be residency.

    If you need help with either application, come back and let us know :icon_biggrin:

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
