UK Ancestory Visa

The Ancestry Visa allows a Commonwealth citizen, aged 17 or over, to immigrate to the United Kingdom with the freedom to live and work in Britain on the basis or their ancestral ties to the UK. The applicant must show that at least one of their grand-parents were born in the UK, including the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man; or before 31 March 1922 in what is now the Republic of Ireland; or on a British-registered ship or aircraft. However, this category does not approve the relationship of step parents, but you can apply if you or your parents are adopted.

The applicants coming to live and work in the UK under this route must intend to seek and undertake employment and must be able to support and accommodate themselves without recourse to public funds. There are plenty of benefits of applying for an Ancestry Visa, which makes it essential to seek professional help in order to get the result you want.

This immigration procedure is intended as a route to settlement. The Ancestry Visa is granted for 5 years, after which the applicant is eligible to apply for permanent resident status. Subject to meeting the certain requirements, the applicant may further apply to become a UK citizen through British naturalization.
