                                                              UK ANCESTRY VISA


An ancestry visa allowing free employment or self-employment and leading to settlement is available to a person who can show adequate maintenance and accommodation and:

  • is a commonwealth citizen; and

  • is aged 17 or over; and

  • can prove a relationship by blood or recognised adoption with a grandparent born in the United Kingdom and Islands; and

  • is able to work and intends to take or seek employment in the United Kingdom.

It is not possible to switch to an ancestry visa from within the UK. Entry clearance must be obtained from the British Embassy or High Commission in the home country of the applicant.

One of the main attractions of the ancestry visa is that it leads to settlement after five years and there is no restriction on employment.  Working in the UK suggests that examination of the applicant’s ability to maintain him or herself is relatively limited, providing they can do so by some means that include some sort of employment. It is not strictly necessary to show employment when applying for extensions, although it would certainly be helpful to be able to do so.
