19 year old American came to the UK today to have two weeks

Resolved Question:

19 year old American came to the UK today to have two weeks work experience with our company. He came in as a tourist not realising he had to have a visa to work. He is been held overnight at Heathrow T4 and is being sent back to the USA tomorrow at 09:30. Is there anything we can do? ***** ***** Chairman CCS Insight www.ccsinsight.com

Hello,

I am afraid there is nothing you can do.

He is not allowed to enter the UK as a visitor because he intends to work with you and the immigration authorities are simply following the law by sending him back to the US.

Sorry, I can only give you an honest answer based on the law.
