My son was just refused entry into the UK at the airport and

is being returned to Toronto...
My son was just refused entry into the UK at the airport and is being returned to Toronto now. He wants to immediately get on a flight to a EU country (possibly Spain, etc) so his girlfriend, who lives and works in the UK, can visit. Is there a shared computer between the UK and EU and is he likely to be refused if he does this? What should he do? Can I call and speak to someone in your office? Should I try to find an immigration lawyer in Toronto? Thanks

Hi,

What were the reasons for the refusal of entry please?

No information about the reasons. He is Canadian and has had three visitor visa's and been living in London for over a year - off and on. The last time he entered from Poland, after visiting a concert, immigration told him they would let him in this time but he really should have had a bank statement, etc. He has a Polish girlfriend living and working in London. He came home to visit over Christmas with a round trip ticket and when he tried to enter the UK, he was detained. When asked, he told authorities he didn't have a girlfriend. They called his uncle who lives in Ascot and he told them he did have a girlfriend - so I'm sure they weren't impressed with different stories. He had a letter from his employer saying he had secure employment but was on a leave of absence. He also had a letter from the bank.

Hi

Thanks for your patience.

The UK and other countries in the EU do share information. It is probable that if he attempted to enter another EU country that they would know of the refusal of entry clearance here in the UK.

He appears to have been refused entry on the grounds that they consider he might be likely to breach the immigration rules or that he deceived them. Simply being refused entry is not sufficient grounds to refuse entry again. However, if it is clear from the reasons of the refusal of entry that the reasons were justified (eg. Deception) then this can be used as a reason to refuse further visas,.

I would strongly advise that instead of flying to a new country he firsts applies for a visa to enter that country. If he does not then he risks being returned again and having a clear track record of attempting to enter countries in which the relevant immigration authority have suspicions. Being rejected from one is not unsual, but if a pattern builds then this can severely hinder him in the future.
