  • If a non-visa national is refused entry at the border, would they be subject to a re-entry ban?

Re-entry bans can be imposed for a range of reasons and in different circumstances. It depends heavily on the reason that entry was refused.

See Practice Note: Mandatory grounds for refusal and re-entry bans, which states as follows:

‘Unless an exemption applies, or a relevant re-entry ban time period has elapsed, an application made under a category within Parts 2‒8, or Appendix Armed Forces, must be refused where a person has previously breached UK immigration law by:

  1. overstaying, unless for a period of 90 days or less (where the overstaying began before 6 April 2017) or 30 days or less (where the overstaying began on or after 6 April 2017)
