Advantages of Ancestry Visa UK

The UK Ancestry Visa has various benefits. The key benefit is that it provides a good path to obtaining indefinite leave to Remain and, eventually, British Citizenship. The preconditions are not that stringent, and your acceptance to the UK is much easier based on family ties. Some other additional benefits are:

  • You are free to work and live in the United Kingdom.
  • It is not necessary to have a work permit or a sponsor.
  • During your stay in the UK, there are no limits on the nature of the jobs you will do.
  • There is no requirement for you to invest in any kind of financial asset, as in the Investor categories.
  • Anyone with a UK ancestry visa can bring their dependents to live with them in the UK. A spouse or civil partner, as well as any children under the age of 18, are considered dependents. When applying with dependants, there are additional criteria.

If your claim to British heritage is by a step-grandparent, unfortunately, you are not eligible to enter the UK through the ancestry path.

Yes, whether the applicable grandparent was a legitimate or illegitimate ancestor does not affect the progress of your application.

An applicant who has been adopted by his or her parents via a legally protected adoption procedure in the United Kingdom may be eligible if:

  • He or she was adopted by a parent who has been born in the United Kingdom, or;
  • His or her biological grandparents were born in the UK, or either of his or her parents was raised by a British citizen.

While reviewing your application, the caseworker will take into account several factors, such as your age and any disabilities you may have, to decide if you have a fair chance of finding employment and not relying on government assistance. If it seems that your application has been denied solely due to your impairment, we will be entitled to appeal the decision under the Equality Act 2010. Applicants who have not served or who cannot demonstrate that they tried to find work during their initial five-year leave period are unlikely to be eligible for settlement.
