In October of 2010 I was refused entry into the UK for a 2 week visit.The reason was the border agent didn't like the answer to the questions she asked.I did not know a physical address of the place where I was staying (booked online and only knew the general area)I didn't have sufficient cash on hand upon arrival. (money in the bank could not be proven)I was traveling alone.I am planning a trip in April of this year. Will me being rejected in the past cause to refuse me entry upon arrival even though none of these things will be the case this time?
I was traveling from the US to UK
I'm a natural born US Citizen.
If I apply for the visa and my application for a short term visitors visa is denied will I automatically be refused entry into the country or could I still talk to an agent when I land with all the proper proof etc?
I was nervous at the time and have since got a lot better at speaking with people than I was 2 years ago. I'm just wondering if there would be a case where I would be better off talking to an agent than I would be applying for a visa and being rejected.
