X through Heathrow Stamp in Passport

Jump to last reply

Hello Helpers,

I am an American, traveling from California to Florence Italy to visit my boyfriend for 2 weeks. I leave on Friday morning, and I've been struck with a fear of detainment.....

I've only attempted to travel out of the country once. My LA based company sent me to London (heathrow) to work for 3 months. They didn't mention the need for me to have a work visa.

Needless to say, I was detained for 7 hours, and sent back to the US with a black X through my stamp in my passport.

Now, on my flight to Italy, I have a short layover in Heathrow....

Will I have to go through customs in Heathrow before Italy?

What kind of measures do I need to take to assure I get through?

I can't go back into that detaining room... and I'm dying to see my boyfriend.

Please help!

Thank you!!!
