Denied entry to UK; could this give me problems going to Estonia?

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone. I may be going to Estonia soon to visit my boyfriend for 8 days, but I had a concern...I was denied entry to the UK, but given temporary entry in the country for 2 days, back in June of this year. Since then, I have been wary of travelling again because it was quite a harrowing experience (detained for like 9 hours) and my first time abroad, so now I'm paranoid that is going to have an effect on my entry into the Schengen zone. The flight I'm probably taking will have a stop in Frankfurt before going to Tallinn.

If you're wondering why I was detained; well I'm an 18 year old female and they said they simply couldnt "trust" I would "be safe" with my boyfriend, who was living there at the time, because I'm "so young", and they also didn't trust I would go back after 1 month/would stay there with him...Then told me if I come back, to plan a shorter trip. They also crossed out the stamp in my passport with "void" in red, which I'm afraid is going to give the immigration elsewhere bad ideas about me.

I really can't afford another experience like that, so can anyone give me any advice? Could this cause me to get sent back to the USA again on my way to Estonia? Thanks!
