This question already has an answer here:
I am flying from the USA to Turkey with a Turkish passport. I checked the UK "do i need a visa guide", it asks the question if I will go through UK Borders Control, if I will not I will not need a transit visa but if I will I need to get a visa. My experience with other airports is that you don't leave the terminal building ( Amsterdam )so you never pass through the border control.
The thing that bothers me is that I have non-connecting flights with no luggage. Both airlines operate in Terminal 1 in Manchester Airport.
1 ) Will I pass through UK customs ? 2 ) Will I pass through UK immigration ?
Anybody had experience with Manchester Airport ?
