Visa Requirements for a Connecting Flight in London

Jump to last reply

Hello,
I have been living in Spain for about two years now and have decided that it is time to return to the United States. I came to Spain on a student visa, granting me legality for one year but as you can see, I have overstayed my welcome. There haven't been any issues while here as I don't leave the country often and Spain does not check very closely. Now that I am looking into flights back to the U.S I am finding many of my options include a connecting flight into London.

My question is this: Will I be going through immigration upon landing in London and if so, do you think there will be a problem once they see I have overstayed my visa? I would only be in the airport for a few hours and would not be leaving.

Thanks in advance for your words of wisdom!
