If you want to apply for an Ancestry visa, email us to check how much you need to have in your bank account.
Simply put, UK Ancestry visas allow Commonwealth citizens with a grandparent born in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man to live and work in the UK for an initial five-year period.
Whether you use the visa for a short-term working stint or a long-term project to gain indefinite leave to remain (ILR) and eventually UK citizenship, is your choice.
A lot of applicants secure these funds through a sponsor (something the UK government fully supports).
You can always use a close confidant as your sponsor – a parent, colleague or friend will do.
