I am applying for UK visa but I have been refused on US visa 8 years ago which was by my other name.
My name is very long so sometimes I use the short name and sometimes I use my full name. My first passport used my short name. I was refused a US visa. After a few years, I've gotten a new passport using my full name. My full name looks totally different from my short name. Hence, I am going to apply for UK visa now in my current full-named passport.
So I am worrying whether the UK embassy will find my US refused visa application details? if yes, what will they do? Will the fact that my previous passport used another name mean that it will be less likely that they'll find it?
Should I let them know that I've used another passport 8 years ago for a US visa? or don't say anything when I apply for the UK visa?
