Seasonal Worker - Latitude Law

Temporary Work – Seasonal Worker Visa

The Seasonal Worker Visa is for workers who have a job offer in the UK to do seasonal horticulture work – for example, picking fruit, vegetables or flowers – with a sponsor who is an approved scheme operator.

The scheme is currently subject to a quota (e.g. 30,000 visas for 2022) and isn’t a route that allows you to bring family members to the UK.

Latitude Law can provide you with expert support to ensure you provide the right documentation and submit the appropriate application. To speak to a solicitor about Season Worker visas, call us now on 0044 161 234 6800 or 0032 258 958 278, or complete our contact form and we will get in touch with you at a time that is convenient for you.

Who is eligible for a Seasonal Worker Visa?

Seasonal Worker visas allow individuals to come to the UK to work in an unskilled role for up to six months. You could be eligible for this type of visa if you:

  • Are over the age of 18;
  • Have an approved sponsor;
  • Have enough money to support yourself in the UK.

The sponsor will need to be an approved scheme operator and must assign you a Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS).

If your visa is accepted, you can come to the UK for a maximum of six months and are only permitted to work in the role you are being sponsored for. If your application is refused, you may be able to make a fresh application or apply for an Administrative Review.

Eligible roles for a Seasonal Worker Visa

Work under the Seasonal Worker route must be within the horticulture sector, and to meet the requirements of this visa, you must be working with one or more of the following products being farmed:

  • Protected vegetables – those grown in glasshouse or polytunnel systems
  • Field vegetables – those grown outdoors, such as vegetables, herbs, leafy salads and potatoes
  • Soft fruit – those grown both outdoors or under cover, including strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, blueberries, and all rabes and rubus species
  • Top fruit – those grown in orchards from fruit-bearing trees, e.g. apples, plums, cherries and apricots
  • Vines and bines – this includes hops or grapes
  • Mushrooms – this typically includes Agaricus bisporus species but can cover more exotic species
  • Bulbs and cut flowers – such as daffodils grown indoors or outdoors
  • Pot plants – such as seasonal bedding plants like pansies, violas, geraniums and poinsettias
  • Hardy ornamental nursery stock – including Christmas trees, shrubs, roses, ornamental trees and perennials
  • Tree and forest nurseries

How to apply for a Seasonal Worker Visa

Applications for Seasonal Worker visas must be submitted from outside of the UK. There is no time limit on this type of visa, but the earliest you can apply is three months before the date on which you are due to start to work – this can be found on your CoS.

You should receive a decision on your Seasonal Worker visa application within three weeks.

What our clients say…

The British passports of my four children successfully reached us this week.

I wanted to thank the Latitude Law Firm for the constant professional support provided to us throughout the process. Your services have been helpful for us at each stage of the process. We would be happy to hire you again in the future for the process of my husband, and would also recommend your firm to others around us.

Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to appreciate the hard work of Joel Reiss towards the successful completion of our case. His support for all of us from day 1 till the very last day has been commendable. Me and my children are very thankful to him for the smooth execution.

Looking forward to hiring the firm for our next case as well.

Four British passports

To Gemma and the team, Thank you very much for your amazing job done. You are life savers.

Allowed Appeal

Just to thank you all for the help given with Bodil’s EU Settlement Scheme application, which came through in the last few days.

A good friend of ours once said: “People do not employ lawyers because they help; they employ them because they make a difference”.

I’m convinced that referral to Latitude did jolt the Home Office into progressing consideration of the application, and it made all the difference.

T & B.
