girl at travel agency when handed her passport noticed had been there for a year on a 6 month visa which has since been renewed and told me you will have to pay some fees before you can get out of here. The travel agency girl said this is not about visa noticed you renewed here believe the guys at the airport will notice that you have spent some extra time here and will asked to pay some fees at airport before will be able to board plane. The fees that she mentioned were over $500 and I am a little confused if you pd and renewed your visa and now they are going to question the extra time you have spent even though you renewed for extra 6 months again will you have to pay for something before you can pass through to get on plane. need to know asap suppose to board plane monday just found this out and contacted you as soon as I found this out

Thanks for your reply.


I practice immigration law and I have never heard of this, either from other solicitor/barristers or from client themselves. Generally, the UKBA wishes to make it as easy as possible for persons in the UK temporarily to leave the country because they consider there to be a huge problem with overstaying and/or legal migrants here.


I also don't know why she would refer to the alleged charge in dollars.


I really don't think that you need to worry about this.
