Japanese nationals have already reached their maximum allowance for 2009 on the Youth Mobility Scheme, the UK Border Agency (UKBA)  announced yesterday.

The UKBA said:

Entry to the United Kingdom under the points-based system youth mobility scheme is based on a quota system for participating countries, rotating annually. Currently the countries participating in the scheme are Australia, Canada, Japan and New Zealand.

We have now reached the issuing level for Japanese nationals for the period ending 31 December 2009 and with immediate effect we will no longer be accepting new applications for this year. Japanese applicants may next apply from 1 January 2010. 

Nationals of Australia, Canada and New Zealand may continue to apply throughout 2009 unless we announce otherwise.
