Ask an UK Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
hello there i need some clarification on a subject ...i was removed from the UK in 2006 because i overstayed my time...i did not need a visa to come to the UK and i still don't. i was removed without my passport because i lost it while i was in the UK..so i'm confused as to if i can re enter the UK or not...i'm not a resident of country different from my own..i'm living in this north american country legally now is what i mean...so my question is..can i return to the UK now as a visitor or no?
Im sorry i have no idea if i am or was barred...like i said before when i was removed i wasnt sent back on my passport travel documents were made for me ...and i do not know if i am barred or nt...when i was interviewed by the immigration officer i told them i wanted to go back home...and i was detained till my daparture date i also told them i had no reason to appeal..i was tired of living that life and i was 17 years old when i overstayed my time as i didnt know how to extend my time i was living with a family at the time and no one helped me so i ended up stayin in the country for 4 years without status...i dont know if i am barred or not...i was removed when i was 21
I have read that before serveral times online...but doesnt answer my question...im not sure if there is a 1 year ban or 5 year ban or 10 year ban since i was removed....and may i remind u again that i dont need a visa to come to the UK...so my main question is ...is there a way to find out how long of a re entry ban there is? indicating again....that i was detained until my removal...that was 7 years ago...so im not sure if there is a 5 year re entry ban or a 10 year re entry ban....can i get some clarification on the re entry bans pertaining to my situation ..i just want to know if i can visit or not..thanks
i have tried calling the uk embassy where i am now...they keep tellin me that i have to call border services...and that they only do with visa applications..so im literally comfused...
