UK Ancestry Visa

An Ancestry visa is a visa issued by the United Kingdom to Commonwealth citizens with a grandparent born in the United Kingdom, Channel Islands or Isle of Man who wish to work in the United Kingdom.

You can apply for a UK Ancestry visa if you:

are a Commonwealth citizen
are applying from outside the UK
are able to prove that one of your grandparents was born in the UK
are able and planning to work in the UK
meet the other eligibility requirements

The requirements are:

s/he is 17 or over
s/he has enough money without help from public funds to support and house her/him/self and any dependents can and plan to work in the UK

The applicant must also show that s/he has a grandparent born in one of the following circumstances:

in the UK, including the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man
before 31 March 1922 in what is now the Republic of Ireland
on a British-registered ship or aircraft

You can claim ancestry if either you or the relevant parent:

were adopted
were born within or outside marriage in the UK

UK ancestry cannot be claimed through step-parents
