Applying for Tier 5 twice with different passports

Post by lhp1977 » Mon May 18, 2020 10:45 pm

Is it possible to apply for a Tier 5 visa for a second time using a different passport than the first application (i.e. dual citizenship)?

In case the second application is rejected which fees (Entry Clearance, IHS and Biometrics) would be refunded?

It depends which Tier 5 visa you mean. There are seven different types. See

https://www.gov.uk/browse/visas-immigration/work-visas > "Shorrt-term work visas".

If you mean getting a second Tier 5 (Youth Mobility Scheme) visa, the answer is no that is not possible. A second application would be refused under paragraph 245ZK(g) of the immigration rules:

(g) The applicant must not previously have spent time in the UK as a Working Holidaymaker or a Tier 5 (Youth Mobility Scheme) Temporary Migrant;

I assume you mean refused, not rejected. When it was refused, only the IHS would be refunded.
I do not give immigration advice. I refer you to Immigration Rules, guidance, other online content and to your sponsor.
