Thank you in advance for your time taken to answer my question.

First of all, I'd like to mention that I'm a dual nationality holder. (this will help you answer my question)

I was an international student undertaking my studies at the UK, however, I was not in a good place mentally then and that reflected poorly on my academic performance, ultimately leading to my tier 4 visa being curtailed. Note that I had left the UK as soon as I received my curtailment letter. ( I had only one citizenship at that time)

Fast forward 5 years, I am now a dual citizenship holder, and the citizenship I recently obtained allows me to enter the UK as a visitor visa-free, I plan on visiting my brother soon who is currently undertaking his studies there. Will I face problems with immigration control at the airport?

Thank you.

    What are you nationalities? – hmakholm left over Monica Sep 23 '18 at 20:56
  • Your situation is a little more difficult situation than mine. You will definitely face problems at immigration control, guaranteed. Whether you apply for a visa or not, you can be sure of that. – user 56513 Sep 23 '18 at 22:42
  • @helen What ties do you have to your country of residence? Apart from obtaining your second citizenship, how solid are your financial circumstances? – Traveller Sep 24 '18 at 5:27

    @MusoniusRufus I don't agree that the OP will necessarily have problems with UK immigration. UKVI aren't concerned with academic performance, just compliance with visa conditions. If she left the UK promptly when her visa was curtailed there shouldn't be a problem. – user79658 Sep 24 '18 at 5:39

    The typical advice when a visitor qualifies for visa-free entry but has concern(s) as to whether it will be granted, is to be able to show documents explaining their reason for travel and ability to support themselves during the trip to Immigration, if asked. gov.uk/uk-border-control/at-border-control This should include proof of return to home country/onward travel. – Traveller Sep 24 '18 at 6:35
