I was traveling on my passport, and I was detained. I flew back to NE and applied for a visitor’s visa. My visa application was refused. Without getting too into details, I was hasty with my application (I wanted to be with Z!) and wasn’t aware of certain restrictions and qualifications. The main problem was that I asked for permission to be in the UK for 6 months (Jan–June) when visitors are only allowed to be in the UK for 6 months out of any 12-month period, meaning I can only spend 3 more months w/ Z while he’s in Cambridge (if I get a visa) since I’ve already spent 3 months in the UK.
I am now in an info-gathering process before I submit an appeal, asking the UKBA to once again consider granting me a visa. I’m not 100% sure an appeal is the appropriate measure, but I don’t know what else to do.
This means A) I’m going to be in the US for a while (if not forever) and B) if you know an immigration lawyer/counselor please let me know. I need help.
On a less serious note, was I the only person who enjoyed Madonna’s halftime performance?
