The UK Government recognises the importance of family. The UK Immigration system, therefore, has several individual and family visa routes available. It also has a route for persons with ancestral ties to the UK.
However, navigating the UK Immigration system can be complicated, as each visa has specific requirements and eligibility criteria. Furthermore, one visa can be more advantageous than another for your circumstances. Breytenbachs, therefore, highly recommend that you speak to one of our consultants for advice.
Below are some visas available under the UK Individual and Family Visa routes.
