Apply for a UK ancestry visa
The UK ancestry visa is available for Commonwealth inhabitants who have grandparents born in the UK, Isle of Man or Channel Islands. This type of visa is available for five years and can grant any kind of employment in the UK, without having restrictions due to a work permit. If you wish to apply for an ancestry visa you will need to provide the birth certificate and also the parents’ or grandparents’ birth certificates and any other important documents related to ancestry, such as documents that can demonstrate the adoption, if the case requires.
Apply for a UK citizenship
In order to obtain the British citizenship, the candidates need to prove they’ve lived for at least five years in the country. The permanent residence permit is necessary when applying for the UK citizenship. The next step is to pass the “Life in the UK test”, which implies the knowledge of the English language, written and spoken, and about the living in the country. This is a computer-based test, which takes about 45 minutes.
