UK Ancestry Visas


Ancestral Visas


​Assisting in the application process for a UK Ancestry Visa, we at Immigration Assist provide a comprehensive facilitation service to ensure successful lodgment of your application. Our service includes consultation and discovery to identify the required documents you already have and strategizing on how to acquire any missing documentation.

Once we have confirmed that all the requirements are met, we will send you an application form for our office use to submit the application online with the United Kingdom Visas and Immigration. We will open a file with the UKVI on your behalf and provide you with login information and instructions to pay the Ancestral Visa and NHI Levy fees directly to the UKVI. 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.

As a Commonwealth citizen applying from outside the UK, you may be eligible for a UK Ancestry Visa if you can prove that one of your grandparents was born in the UK and you are able and planning to work in the UK. With this visa, you and your family members can live and work in the UK for up to five years.

To apply, you must be at least 17 years old and have enough money to support yourself and any dependents without public funds. Required documentation includes a current passport, bank statements, tuberculosis test results, and ancestry documents such as full birth certificates, marriage certificates, and legal adoption papers. The visa costs £516 and has an NHI levy of £3,144 per applicant, payable upfront upon lodgment of the visa.

At Immigration Assist, we offer guidance and support throughout the entire application process to ensure your success in obtaining a UK Ancestry Visa. Contact us today for more information.
