Change to Ancestry Visas  
Hey everyone!

I know there had been some talk about the UK getting rid of the ancestry visa but it looks like they have just revised it. Here is the basic information:

From 3 April 2006, all grants of entry clearance in the UK Ancestry category will be made for five years, rather than four years as they are now. This mirrors a wider change in the Immigration Rules as part of the government's 'Five Year Strategy for Asylum & Immigration', requiring those in employment routes leading to settlement to spend five years working in the UK before they can apply for settlement.

The change to grants of entry clearance in the UK Ancestry category will continue to allow individuals with UK Ancestry visas to stay in the UK throughout the full qualifying period for settlement without having to renew their leave. In order to take advantage of the five year grants of entry clearance, all applicants in the UK Ancestry category are advised to delay submitting their visa application until 3 April 2006.
