Customer Question

I have received a refusal of entry clearance, am a U.S. Citizen, live with my British overseas fiancé. We were planning a marriage in England (where his family resides) next year, however, for his birthday I purchased football tickets for May 24th (Chelsea v Sunderland) and thought we would try and kill two birds with one stone and give notice while there. We waited to book tickets and make registry appt (as website recommended) until receipt of my pass pow and visa back. His parents are in Worthing and I stated that we would only be there 12 days (9 days required les travel days) and intent was to attend game and give notice. Now I have a red stamp, entry refusal and a vacation planned with hotel and Chelsea tickets ($$$) with no idea if I'll be deported or even allowed to leave on my Virgin booked ticket.

it was a marriage visa application, which is what my future father in law in England said the registry office in West Sussex said I needed.
