Hi just joined and hope someone will be able to shed some light on my situation.
I moved to UK in 1998 on Ancestral Visa from South Africa. I met husband and got married, changed visa to ILR (spouse) then he got offered a job in Canada so we moved here in 2002. Became Canadian. We kept our house in UK, both own jointly which we rent out, we submit tax forms every year (but don't pay tax due to an agreement between UK & Canada so as not to get double taxed) still pay my NI stamp as voluntary self employed. We have no children but he has daughters and 5 grandchildren in UK whom we are close to and we have no family in Canada. We are now thinking of returning to UK when he retires, back into our house.
So this is my question, I have been thinking of trying to go for the Returning Resident Visa because of my ties (house, tax and NI & his family) but worried that they reject this and could be a waste of money. I do qualify for spouse Visa due to funds in savings but this route is a pain with all the paper work and having been there before. I also still qualify for Ancestral.
These are my thoughts, try for Returning Resident first, plan B ancestry and last resort Spouse.
What are people's thoughts? Has anyone ever got a Returning Resident Visa?
