Passport stamp in the UK

Jump to last reply

Hello, can I ask your advise?

On my last visit to England I was held by the immigration officer at the border, saying I was suspicius due to my long stay in the UK and entering more than once. However, I didn't overstay or even came close to overstaying, I didn't do anything illegaly, I was just traveling as a backpacker and didn't realize that making Britain as my base to leave and enter twice (left twice for rock festivals at other countries) will be looked upon as a problem.

The thing is, the IO was out to get me. I don't know if it was because of my origins or just bad mood, but he did everything to humiliate me, while refusing to check or even look at the evidences I try to submit. For example, I wrote I'm staying this time at a friend's house. He said it is a fake name and details. I asked him to call her and check, but he refused. He said my flight ticket (as I was leaving the week after back home) is fake as well (no, it was not).

He did let me in, as he had no proof to deny my entry, but gave me a stamp with 3 code landing (starting with NWR). He said "you are a lier and if you know better don't come back to this country in the next couple of years".

I was shocked and humiliated. Never experienced anything like that, and I travel a lot!

The thing is, I have people who are dear to me there. I want to visit again but I am afraid. I didn't even file complain (if I can?) because of fear. What is the code means and can I go back in May for a month visit?
