UK passport, ancestry visa or tier 2 intra-company visa?

Post Tue Jan 04, 2011 8:22 pm

Hello everyone!

I will be moving to Scotland with my wife as part of an intra-company transfer from the Canadian office to the UK office and I am not sure which paperwork I should fill out for my wife and I.
- Should I get a UK passport, ancestry visa or tier 2 intra-company visa?
- What would my wife need?
- We are both Canadians born after 1/1/1983 and over 21

Since my father and grandparents were born in the UK as far as I can tell I can get a UK passport or an ancestry visa.
- It seems like a lot of people on this site get ancestry visas but in most cases would you not also qualify for a UK passport?
- Why would I get one over the other?
- In the long run the UK passport seems like the best option

Since my company is requesting the transfer I can get a Tier 2 intra-company Visa but I'm worried about the upcoming restrictions in April affecting the process.
- Is this a better option over the UK passport or ancestry visa?

Regarding my wife
- Which visa or passport option I use would be the best option for my wife to fall under?
- What visa form would my wife fill out?
- They have stopped accepting Tier 1 visas so if she has to fill out a Tier 1 visa would they allow her because of my status?
- FYI she plans on working in Glasgow and we have been married less than a year

Thank you for any help as this process is very confusing!

I'm so glad this forum exists because I cannot find anyone to formally ask from the Gov't or affiliates.

Does anyone know if I need to have confirmed residence in the UK before my wife can apply for a spousal visa if I have my UK passport?

Hi,
I am Canadian and my grandfather was born in England. I want to apply for Right of Abode or a UK Ancestry Visa. Not exactly sure which one applies to me yet. I've read some of the forums on the subject but cannot locate a website that has all the information and forms I need to apply. Can anyone help me out?
Thanks

The ARC is just your residency card, it is not a work visa. Residency doesnt do one much good if the actual work visa in your passport has expired.

Going to renew my UK Passport in July in the UK as it is full, with all the stamps not expired. How do I stand with my 1 year visa that does not run out till October and of course my re-entry permit will be in the old passport, anyone have experience of this?

My Name in Passport is as follows:

Surname: Singh
First Name: Varun Kumar

in I20:

Surname: Singh
First Name: Varun
Middle Name:Kumar

I have got the F-1 Visa also and in that the name appears as it is in the passport.

Will that be a problem?

Where can I have passport and visa photos of myself taken? I need these and I want to make sure the dimensions are correct so Id like a pro to do it. Any place like this in Quad, Ayala Center or Greenbelt? Ive been to Island Photo but I think they do only passport and not visa. Please help
