Areas of Expertise:
Thank you for your question.
You may be able to live in the UK for five years as a retired person with independent means, however the criteria for this is very strict. After this you may be able to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain. To obtain a five year Ancestry Visa it is likely that you would be required to work. Your other options are an Investor Visa (if you have access to £2 million to invest in the UK market) or an Entrepreneur Visa (you will need access to £200,000 and this would involve working in a busienss).
