Default Ancestry & Covid

Hello! I've been living in the UK on an Ancestry visa since September 2017.

For various reasons including Covid, I came back to Canada at the very end of March with the intent to stay in Canada until the beginning of July once this all (hopefully) blows over. That will put me at about 90 days out of the UK or thereabouts. Will this cause me any issues when I return? The only info I could find stated that I couldn't be out of the UK for more than 180 days per year. If anyone could clarify, I'd be grateful! Hope everyone is staying healthy.

Yes, it's 180 days in any 12 month period. An absence of about 90 days shouldn't affect your visa status or eligibility for ILR. It's also possible that absences during this period will be looked upon with some lenience (though I wouldn't count on it)
