A UK Ancestry visa is one of the most popular routes to UK residency.
This visa is available to people who have some kind of family connection to the UK.
You can live and work in the UK for a period of up to five years with an Ancestry visa, as well as exit and re-enter the UK freely on multiple occasions.
EEA Family Permits
If you are a citizen of a European Economic Area (EEA) country, you don’t need an EEA family permit or a registration card to live and work in the UK.
However, a residence card can be a useful supporting document if you wish to bring a non-EEA partner or family member with you to the UK or if you want to apply for future visas or permits.
Indefinite Leave to Remain
Permanent residency or Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) allows you to remain in the UK for an indefinite period, on condition that you intend to remain present and settled there. ILR permits you to work in the UK without restriction while also allowing you to exit and re-enter the country with no restrictions.
