What does automatic ban means? For instance, if I apply to visa, will they deny the visa, or charge the criminal charges?


I checked the magistrates court and could not find how to access them. Is there an opportunity to contact somebody online there? How should I do so?

INC : Hi, the UKBA will not impose the criminal charges but can refuse your aoplication for a visa.

Wil they inform the other country immigration services? For intstance, if I apply to the US visa?

INC : If you do not disclise the criminal offence snd it later comes to light, you could face a ban of up to 10 years from the uk.

a ban means non-entrance? no visa?

INC : With regard to the magistrates court, you will not be able to contact them by email and instead will either have to call them or write to them.

OK. Thanks. I will do so

INC : Alternatively, you can contact a lawyer in glasgow to act on your behalf.

Please respond to the last two questions, and I will appreciate your assistance very much
