One of the reasons for my entry to the UK being refused is because I 'used deception' and concealed the fact that my parents are the in the UK. The truth is, I never lied about this: I told the officer that the purpose of my trip is to visit 'friends and family in the UK and maybe do some volunteering' but he focused on the volunteering part. The voluntary work was never my main plan, it was just a thought I had, and I told him this later but he has written in the statement that (I) only revealed the true purpose of the trip, which was to visit friends and family, after further questioning and used deception to gain entry to the UK by concealing that my parents lived in the UK.
Now, I am trying to apply for a visitor's visa but am worried I will be rejected because I supposedly 'used deception'.
i was given two sheets:
REASON FOR DETENTION and
NOTICE OF REFUSAL TO LEAVE OR TO ENTER. On the Reason for Detention sheet, only two sections were ticked:
(B) insufficient information to decide whether to grant you temporary admission... and
(6) you have failed to give satisfactory answers...
There is a sentence above number 6 about having used deception which has not been ticked.
Do I mention my 'use of deception' in my application for a visitor's visa?
There is a section in which I need to write why I was refused and the reasons I believe are: 1) 'deception' 2) no return ticket 3) insufficient funds.
I did not intentionally conceal the fact that my family are living in the UK (I have no reason to!) but I don't want them to misunderstand.
So what should I do?
Should I write a cover letter and if I do, what should I write exactly in the cover letter?
