County Court Judgement (CCJ) and Visitor Visa Application

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am an Indian National who lived in UK from 2008 till 2016. After that I moved to USA and I am planning to visit UK again as a visitor. I just checked my UK credit account and it is showing that I have an active County Court Judgement issued against my name to repay a certain debt of around £1000. This judgement was issues on April, 2018 and I was not in UK at that time, so I never received it.

 

My questions are:
1. Can I still apply for a visitor's visa even if I have a CCJ against my name? I went through the application form and the CCJ has to be disclosed in the visa application.
2. If I am able to apply and I do get a visa, will the UKBA be able to ask me to pay the outstanding debt before I am cleared at the border?

Thanks a lot for the answers/help in advance.

CCJ are not a criminal offence in the uk

and no you don't need to pay it.

 

when you are settled tell us more about what the CCJ is for and we'll help further

they ask because if you owe the NHS or the Govt money (legal cots for previous failed application for example) the they can bar your application. By asking the question they also hit other irrelevant data but if they dont ask they wont hit the right one.

Basically nothing to worry about and you can ask for the CCJ to be set aside anyway.

That is why you are asked what it is about, we may be able to help.

Hi dx100uk and ericsbrother! 

Many thanks for the replies.

 

The CCJ on my name is for a credit card debt.

I don't owe any money to NHS, HMRC or Govt.

 

My only concern is that since the application form on the visitor visa requires for the CCJs to be disclosed, it might become a deciding factor in the approval or rejection of the application.

 

I only plan to visit UK for 10 days and I do not believe that I would have enough time to go in court and request the CCJ to be set aside.

I say again

a ccj is NOT A CRIMINAL OFFENCE

forget it exists

it plays NO PART AT ALL in you being here getting here staying here or returning from here.

, I have advised what may be of interest and this isnt of any interest to the decision maker at all, there isnt a box on his form to tick for this.

The set aside can be done from elsewhere but as the CCJ can do you no harm why bother spending the money on it?
