Hong Kong - flag Family & Partner Visas

A Family or Partner Visa UK is granted to a family member (a spouse, fiance, child or parent) of a person who holds either citizenship, permanent residency or a valid visa allowing family members to join them.

The most common form of family visa is a Marriage, Partner or Spousal Visa, allowing the partner a visa to join them in that country. It often allows that partner the right to work, but in most cases does NOT allow them permanent residency.

A family visa will often lead to Permanent Residency only after a period of time, as long as the existing conditions of the original family visa have been met.

While many people qualify for the UK Ancestry Visa based on holding a Commonwealth passport with a UK born grandmother or grandfather, we have found that if you have a grandparent born in the UK, or if your mother is British or your father is British, then there are several scenarios where you can claim British Nationality and the right to hold a British Passport. This stems from Britain’s collection of British Colonies, British Protectorates and British Protected States in the middle of last century and the Nationality rules concerning what are now the countries of the Commonwealth.
