No, You Will Not be Arrested at the UK Airport For Your Debt

By on January 22, 2019

Question:

Jon,

I was an international student in the UK for 1.5 years and left the UK in February 2014. At the time of leaving I had left a debt of 300 GBP as payday loan.

The company had contacted me several times and at last the debt was sold to a third party who also emailed me several times.

But to my bad luck I ignored all. Now I want to go back to the UK for further study.

I also had a couple of mobile contacts and phone contacts on my name. So my question right now is that will these unpaid bills or loans will affect my international student visa to UK and will there be any chance that I may be arrested for such reason at the airport? I will be really eagerly waiting for your kind reply.

Answer:

Dewan,

You will not be arrested for unpaid bills at the airport, or anywhere in the UK. Leaving unpaid bills and accounts behind alone is not a crime.

The accounts should have no bearing on a student Visa either. At present, there are no questions on a student Visa application asking about unpaid bills or accounts in the UK. As long as you meet the Visa requirements, and did not overstay or break any of the provisions of your last Visa, you should be fine.

When was your last contact with anyone regarding the accounts?

For the amount(s) you may owe, they may have given up trying to collect the accounts.

Regards,

Jon
