My friend went to Dublin through an agency but was denied entry as even though he had a return flight, digs set up and spending money; they did not believe he would go home.
He was sent back to the UK (where he had connected his flight to Dublin) where he was allowed entry for 48 hours, then left to go back to Brazil on his return flight without any problems.
My question is this, if he was to return to the UK? He now has a new clean passport as he lost his in return to Brazil.
Can he come back to the UK as a tourist? He genuinely has no intention of staying as he has family and work in Brazil.
Would the immigration computer systems have his refusal to Dublin logged? He had just a stamp and no fingerprints or photographs were taken in Dublin, just a refused entry stamp which has not shown on his replacement passport. Would this be logged anywhere as he is very scared to spend money on a flight if this will cause him problems.
