This question already has an answer here:
I applied for a UK visitor visa, I thought I had all my document straight forward disclosing all required information. When it came to question have you been rejected Visa, I was wrongly adviced by many applicants who got the visa to only list past 10 years since the older rejection is automatically erased from the system. Mind that I was trying to be extremely sincere with my answer and I mentioned my visa rejection to the US. AFter applying I got a rejection letter that I was a Fraud and I got a ten years Ban, it was mentioned that I withhold the information trying to deceive them. I was shocked by their reply. If I was a fraud, by all means, I would not even disclose the US visa Rejection. There is no room for Appeal unfortunately but this is unjust and harsh. I do not know if anyone had a simmilar situation and on top of that I did not have that passport nor the information regarding that rejection since my family applied for that visa and I had no idea why we were rejected nor the exact dates. anyone manage to solve similar situation.
