UK Ancestry Visas

How can we help

We offer a facilitation in which we will lodge the application on your behalf and ensure that you attend an appointment with all the correct documents.

We make sure that a successful application for an Ancestral visa is submitted.

How do we do this:

Firstly, we consult and do a discovery to ascertain which of the required documents you already have.

We then strategize on the best solution to acquire the missing documentation.

When we are satisfied that all the requirements are in place we will send you an application form,

this form is purely for our office use in order to garner the info required to lodge the application online and will not be sent to the UK as part of the process


We will open a file with the UKVI on your behalf.

Once lodged the login information and instructions will be shared with you, to allow you to login and pay the UKVI for the Ancestral Visa and the NHI Levy. We will not invoice these fees only to pay them over on your behalf.

We will then sign you up with your closest TLS application centre and book an appointment for your biometrics to be taken and for the hard copies of the application to be uploaded.

The visa will be issued within about 3 weeks.
