    UK Ancestry Visa Extension Process

    If you are currently residing in the UK with a UK Ancestry Visa, you may be able to extend your stay with an Ancestry Visa extension.

    A UK Ancestry Visa renewal is a process which lets you extend your Ancestry Visa. You can apply for this once you have resided in the UK for five years on a UK Ancestry Visa. If you successfully extend your visa, you can stay in the UK for another five years.

    Alternatively, you can also apply to settle in the UK permanently if you have continuously lived in the UK for this period. The best option for you will depend on how long you intend to stay in the UK for and whether your previous stay has been continuous or not.

    How can IAS help?

    Our experienced immigration lawyers can assist you with your Ancestry Visa extension. We can assess whether you are eligible for a UK Ancestry Visa renewal or Indefinite Leave to Remain. We will do this by gathering and reviewing all your relevant documents, your travel history, and future plans.

    Your lawyer will also prepare a Letter of Representation to support your Ancestry Visa extension application. This letter details your case’s merits and references UK immigration laws which support your own case.

    Our services also include liaising with the Home Office during your application and completing your application form to the highest standard. With IAS, your chances of successfully extending your Ancestry Visa will be maximised. Contact us today on 0333 363 8577 or make an enquiry online to take your first steps towards a successful Ancestry Visa renewal. We have offices located across the UK, including in LondonManchester, or Birmingham. You can also use the office finder to find the closest branch.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    In order to qualify for a UK Ancestry Visa renewal, you must continue to meet the following requirements:

    • Be 17 or over
    • Have enough money to support yourself without accessing public funds
    • Work in the UK
    • Be a citizen of the Commonwealth

    You will also need to ensure that you have a Biometric Residence Permit to accompany your application for an Ancestry Visa extension.

    If you renew a UK Ancestry Visa, you can live and work in the UK for another five years after your Ancestry Visa expires. You can also study on your Ancestral Visa, UK universities will accept this as a valid visa for their immigration checks.

    You can also apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) once you have lived for a continuous period of five years minimum. If you are unable to apply for ILR while on your current UK Ancestry Visa, extending your visa may be a good option to allow you to do this.

    You cannot apply to change or switch to this visa if you are already in the UK. You also cannot access public funds.
