Thread: Deported from the U.K.

  1. #1
    Hello!
    I was recently connecting flights in London, and was deported. I was there to
    visit my boyfriend in Glasgow, and to see the highlands. I was told by a very
    rude, insulting officer that I had too much of an emotional attachment to the
    U.K., and they didn't believe I would leave. Even though I have 3 sons in
    California, and a California real estate license. My grandmother lives in
    Norway, and they wouldn't let me go there. I was told I'd have another
    interview, and waited until 3:30 a.m., but then was transferred to a detention
    center. They said I'd have counsel there.. since I was there from 4-7:30 a.m.,
    and then escorted to a departing flight, there was nothing available. I was told
    to come back here and file for a fiance visa. Upon my return, doing research, I
    found that I need to have met him in the flesh to do that. I've called the
    embassy twice now, and both times was told I must have caught the immigration
    officer on a bad day. This is hard to hear. Now I need a visa to go back, and I
    have limited time, because I do want to get back to my children before too long.
    We just want to be together, we have no bad intentions. We don't have a lot of
    money.
    I have a job offer in writing now. The big deal to them was that I'd quit my
    coffee-shop job before travelling. I had gotten my real estate license, and had
    my fingerprints done two days before I left. Since it takes a couple months to
    do the background check, I thought that by the time I got back, my license would
    be ready, and of course, I would begin practicing real estate instead. So I quit
    my job. They said that made no sense.
    Now I have the bad stamp in my passport, and I want to get everything in proper
    order before going back, so that history does not repeat itself.
    I'd been told that I didn't have enough money to be a tourist. I explained I
    wasn't going to London, just spending time in the country, and I had a place to
    stay. They had the address. I did have enough money to do what he and I were
    planning to do.. we only wanted to spend some time together.
    We hope there's a way to be together. We plan to marry, but we don't want to do
    it for immigration, we want it to be ours. I'm planning on going back in a month
    or so, and returning in January.
    Thank you for any advise you can offer. I'd like to have an attorney contact
    number for when I face immigration again, and would like to know what it would
    cost to have someone help me get my ducks in a row, so to say.
    Thank you

    Not familiar with UK immigration policy, but "too much emotional attachment to the UK" can't really be overcome by bringing more money with you.

    Why can't the Glaswegian boyfriend visit you in the USA to satisfy the personal meeting requirement and then you can apply for the fiancé visa?
    The above is simply an opinion. Your mileage may vary. For immigration issues, please consult an immigration attorney.
