Am I eligible for an Overseas Domestic Worker visa?
You will be able to apply for a UK Overseas Domestic Worker visa if you:
are 19 years or over
have worked for your overseas employer for at least 12 months
work in the same household as your employer or one they use frequently
will travel to the UK with your employer, their partner or children
will work as a full-time domestic worker in a UK household your employer will live in
will leave the UK at the end of 6 months and
can financially support yourself in the UK without the need for public funds
The Home Office will also check that your employer is either a British citizen who normally resides outside the UK or a foreign citizen who is coming to the UK on a visit. In either case, they must not intend to remain in the UK for more than 6 months. Furthermore, your employer must pay you at least the UK’s National Minimum Wage.
What can I do on an Overseas Domestic Worker visa?
As an Overseas Domestic Worker visa holder, you can travel abroad and return to the UK and change employers to another job as a domestic worker in a private household. If you change to another employer, you must not exceed the maximum stay of 6 months in total. It is important to remember that as a Overseas Domestic Worker visa holder, you will not be able to take other work, live in the UK for long periods through frequent visits, or receive public funds/benefits.
What documents do I need to apply?
With your Overseas Domestic Worker visa application, you will also need to provide:
your current passport (or other valid travel identification)
evidence that you have enough savings to support yourself in the UK
a completed ‘Appendix domestic worker statement’ – this must be signed by both you and your employer and
a letter from your current employer with your job title and duration of full-time employment.
