I am a US citizen with a "boyfriend" in the UK. I use the term boyfriend very, very loosely as we're not in any sort of committed relationship.
The 1st time I went to visit him was in Feb. 2012. I made a mistake of lying about why I was there. I messed up. After a few moments of talking to the agent, I panicked and told her that I had lied, so she pulled me to secondary. After awhile of questioning, she let me in the country.
I went to visit him again in May 2012. That time I received extra questioning but I wasnt put in secondary. i was let in.
I want to go back and see him in Jan 2013 for 2 weeks and again in July 2013 as I already have set vacations during those months. I am worried that the UK won't let me in because I visit so much. How can I avoid being denied entry?My lie the first time I went was that I was there to visit an old friend when the truth was I was meeting someone I'd been speaking to online. It was a small, silly lie, and a bad mistake on my part. Lesson has been learned though -- never lie to immigration. That said, I do not tell immigration that I am visiting a boyfriend. I just say that I am visiting a friend. As we are not committed to one another, that's a truthful answer in my opinion. The last time I went, the immigration officer told me that he suspected that I was in a relationship. He asked me if there was a possibility of my friendship turning into a relationship, and I said that I didn't know because I can't predict the future. The officer said he is surprised that anyone would visit just a friend more than once a year. He kept asking about the relationship status, even after I had said he was just a friend. When I offered my friends number, he refused to call it. But, my friend would have verified what I had just told him.
