Im a Canadian citizen, but I am on ODSP, I am trying to find out what my odds are and what types of things i will need to get and show etc ... if I decided to move to the UK/England. Im not sure if I qualify for the ancestry visa or not... My Great Grandpa and Grandma lived there and then moved to canada... there oldest daughter was born in England also and came over with them then they had another daughter then my grandfather... so I am unsure if I can get that passed or not... I could possible get my grandfathers sister birth certificate along with my great grandparents birth certifcates but Im unsure if that is enough to qualify. Next is Fiancee Visa, how hard is that to qualify for because that is a big reason for the potiental thought of moving ... I have a boyfriend who lives in Britian and is a British Citizen. How much do we really need to show fiancially for me to be allowed to get there and what kinds of papers would we need to provide and what would the odds be of being excepted on that basis... Im just trying desparately to find out more information on what we would need to do if we continue our relationship... we love each but fear it is a doomed relationship if we can not find a way to make this happen. We dont plan on me actually moving for about 2 years ... but would like to set a plan in action so we know what we will be in for and what we need to do and expect and how to proceed if it is possible..
Yes I am needing to no how to go about immigrating there
What kinds of things I will have to do and face ...
If it is even possible for me...
Or is it more like there is no way I will ever have a chance at getting accepted for any of the immigration Visas
Im just really concerned because Im on the ODSP here right now and not working and is that going to affect my chances
Im hoping that I might be able to work at somepoint again but I do not no if and when. So Im really not sure that a work visa is an option for me to try and apply for
And I am unclear if I can be accepted on an "Ancestry visa" because it was "my GreatGrandfather and Great Grandmother" who was born in England and my Grandfather was born in Canada after they immigrated here. Therefore It was only his(my grandfathers) mother, father and oldest sister who where born in England .. not my actual Grandfather ... and Im not sure if i was to show his sisters (my grandfathers sisters birthcertificates and his parents brith certificates) if that would allow me to qualitfy because most things i seem to find say it need to be your father or grandfather to be accepted ...so Im not really sure if that would be enough to qualify me for the ancentry visa.
I do no there is a "Fiancee Visa" but I dont no if once again my being OSPD here would affect my chances/our chances of me getting accepted for it ... And if He has to show all the money to be able to suport me or can I show that I have enough to beable to live there with out help or support until we are married ...etc... it just all seems so complicated and I have no idea what is the best option if there is one and what we would need to do for me to Immigrated to Britian ...
Other then the original uk website I have no idea where else to look to find help with this information here in canada and in my area to help me figure out the best way to go about this and if I remotely have a chance of immigrating there.
My BoyFriend is a British Citizen lives in West Sussex , England
We ve been talking for about 6mths and he is planning to come visit me this April 2013 so we can see each other in person instead of just through skype, emails, letters and phone calls.
So no we havent lived with each other as of yet.
We are just concerned that this might be a doomed relationship and if its not what do we need to start doing and planning in order for us to be successful for me to be able to move there if it is at all possible.
