Asked in Immigration Law

Q: Immigration Officer stamped my passport with a standard leave to enter when I have an Indefinite leave to remain.

On May 13, 1983 I was granted a Leave to Remain in the UK for an indefinite period visa and since then I have maintained this status by not staying outside the UK for more than two years. During my last visit on July 29, 2018 the border force immigration officer in Edinburgh stamped my passport with a Leave to enter for six months and not as a returning resident although I usually enter the borders through Heathrow, London. I am planning to travel back to the UK next month. Do I need a visa or can I still enter the UK using my indefinite leave to remain status

A: You should contact an immigration lawyer in the UK, not the US.
