Appeal In Progress, Can I Visit?
Posted 26 November 2012 - 04:28 PM
I've recently been denied a 'Right to access a UK resident child' visa, and I'm in the middle of appealing. I was declined due to overstaying by 2 months (among other smaller reasons) and been told that I'm ineligible to reapply for a visa until June 2013. Does this mean I can't take a standard trip to the UK to visit my son until then?

if you are questioning any overstay then this is something you should discuss with your legal rep.

I was banned from applying for entry for one year due to an overstay of 6 weeks.

Yes, you can attempt entry without getting a visa in advance. How that will play out at the airport is not certain. You will be held for further questioning and the quality of the answers as to your intentions will weigh heavily on the decision to permit you to enter. I think it would be better and easier if you dealt with all of that in advance by applying for a visa. A ECO, reading your file at his desk at UK visa hub in Canada will be able to make a more informed decision on your circumstances (review the statements from the mother granting visit access; assess the risk of your non-return, etc) than a Border Force officer at the airport, who would normally wish to spend about 15 seconds with each arriving passenger. Or you can sit in an interview room at the airport with a broken coffee machine for several hours, while they decide whether or not to land you.
