The Answer

Dear Marina,

No, you will not get arrested. Immigration has nothing to do with any dispute over a civil complaint by a bank for a past due debt. They may ask you a lot of questions as a visitor upon entry but it will not be related to an old NatWest debt.

However, at some point it would be wise to resolve that past debt and put it behind you.

Please post your responses and follow-up messages to me on this in the comments section below.

Big Hug!
