UK Ancestry Visa

A route to eventually obtaining British citizenship and Indefinite Leave to Remain is provided by the Ancestry visa. It is entirely based on family relationships. After your application is accepted, you are free to live and work anywhere in the United Kingdom with no limitations.

It is required to have continuous resident in the UK with indefinite leave to remain for a minimum of twelve months in order to apply for British citizenship. However, this requirement doesn’t apply if you are married to a British Citizen or in a civil partnership with one.

The breakdown of fees for a UK Ancestry Visa is as follows:

  • Visa Application Fee – £637.00
  • Immigration Health Surcharge – £3,120.00
  • Priority Visa Service (optional) – £500.00 (UK Visas and Immigration (‘UKVI’) aim to process priority visa applications in 5 business days).

The earliest you can apply is 3 months before your preferred date of entry to the UK. Applicants can only apply for initial entry clearance from their country of residency (not the UK), and standard processing time for a UK Ancestry Visa is 15-business days. Your passport will be retained by UK Visas & Immigration during this time. We do not recommend booking any travel to the UK until you are in receipt of a valid visa.

Please contact our UK immigration solicitors if you would like to apply for the Ancestry visa.
