The UK Ancestry visa route is available to Commonwealth citizens who are over the age of 17, who can demonstrate they have a grandparent who was born in the UK and who have the intention to work in the UK.
We can advise you of the eligibility requirements and help you prepare your application so you can obtain a visa which when granted will be valid for five years.
Once you have held the visa for five years, you can apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain after which you could naturalise as a British citizen.
