Is Pakistan part of the Commonwealth? If I am a Pakistani

This answer was rated:

Is Pakistan part of the Commonwealth? If I am a Pakistani Passport holder can I apply to the UK passport or apply for a residency?

Hello dear !

Pakistan is one of the commonwealth countries.

You can apply for a visa to come to the UK and either or work here in the UK.

You have live for a certain years before you will be eligible to apply for British passport.

Perhaps you were thinking to apply for an Ancestry visa.

Commonwealth citizens

You can apply for an Ancestry visa to work in the UK if you have a British grandparent and meet other eligibility criteria.

I got rejected for EU asylum, will this make any problems trying to get into the uk?

I will check all the links thank you

You can enter the UK, but the problem lies with EuroDac system. Your fingerprint is already registered in somewhere else. They might or might not send you back if you make a claim for Asylum. Sometimes, countries do not want to take failed asylum seekers, then the UK has to decide his claim here.

I am sharing two articles which might be helpful for your better understanding:
