Ancestry Visa

The UK Ancestry Visa is one of the most common visas that foreigners use to live and work in the country. It is available for Commonwealth citizens, British overseas citizens, British nationals (overseas) with grandparents born in the UK to remain in the UK for 5 years.

To be eligible for this visa, you must meet several requirements : 

1. You must have at least one grandparent who was born or has lived in the UK for at least five years before your application date. 

2. You must also have evidence that shows how your family ties to the UK affect your ability to reside there permanently. This could include documentation such as marriage certificates, birth records, or residency cards from previous countries where you have resided.

Our team can help you understand the process and obtain the visa you need. We also provide support for those wishing to extend for a further 5 years or apply for Indefinite leave to remain.

If you require further information or assistance feel free to contact UK Immigration Lawyers, our expert team specialise in family visa applications and are well equipped to guide you through the process.
