UK Residency Visa - Ancestry

Do you qualify for UK Ancestry?

You will qualify if you can show that:

  • You are a Commonwealth citizen
  • You are aged 17 or over
  • You have a grandparent who was born in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man (see note below)
  • You have a grandparent who was born in what is now the Republic of Ireland before 31 March 1922 (see note below)
  • You are able to work and intend to do so in the UK, and
  • You can support yourself and any dependants, and live without needing any help from public funds.

Note: if you or your parent (who you are claiming ancestry through) are adopted, you can still apply for entry under this category. You must show evidence of the legal adoption with your application form.

Can you work in the UK?

You must intend to work or look for a job in the UK before we can consider you for entry in this category.

Do you need a work permit?

No. You do not need a work permit.

How long can you stay?

If you arrive with a UK Ancestry visa, you will have permission to stay for five years.

What happens after five years?

After five years, you will be able to apply for permanent residence as long as:

  • You continue to meet the requirements of the Rules for United Kingdom Ancestry, and
  • You have spent a period of five years in employment in the UK in this way, without a break.

Can your family join you in the UK?

Your husband, wife, or eligible partner and children under 18 years of age can join you in the UK if:

  • They have a visa for this purpose, and
  • You can support them and live without any help from public funds.

Do you need a visa?

You must get a visa before you travel to the UK. You should apply in the country where you normally live.
