Scruffy young man entering the UK

Jump to last reply

My son (American) plans to fly from NY to London in late October as the first stop in what will essentially be a round-the-world trip. He appears to be precisely the sort of scruffy, hippie-ish young fellow who might be planning to stay indefinitely. In fact, he doesn't plan to stay long in England - maybe two weeks or so? - before heading on, but he is doing one of those make-it-up-as-you-go type of trips. Consequently, he may not have an onward ticket yet. He can bring a bank statement that will show ample money to support himself abroad for several months, and I'm making him get travel medical insurance whether he wants to or not.

I've heard of people like my son having trouble entering because of the suspicion that they're coming to live rather than to visit. Since the dreadlocks, scruffy beard and thrift-store clothes aren't going to change, what should he bring and/or be prepared for to get through passport control without any problems?
