Where are you from? And why was your holiday visa to the UK rejected?

disturbs me. does it mean if we had applied previously for some countries visa and it was rejected , could this effect the final decision of PR ?
Quite frankly, there is no way the Sing authorities will or even can check access British visa/immigration records, so I'd just put "no" there as a "yes" is likely to lead down a road you don't want to go ("what do you mean you don't know why you were rejected -- are you hiding a criminal record, terrorist links, insufficient income or what?"). But yes, depending on how you read that, this might be a borderline lie and that would then be a crime. :?

Maybe the OP should have read this before attempting to enter the UK;

Just to add to Jpatokal's query, it would seem there is something the OP isn't telling the following is from the enclosed link;

Q: What if I am refused a UK visa?
A: If you are refused a visa, the entry clearance officer will give you a written notice clearly explaining the decision, which will also tell you if you have the right of appeal. For more information read our guidance on Appeals (INF 19)

I had a mainland Chinese friend of mine, refused an holiday visa, it appears the UK don't like to let them in because they almost always go missing, anyway when she contacted me, I phoned Beijing up to find out the problem, they told me she had failed the interview, by saying she was coming to learn English!

Pretty stupid really, however it was routine to fail people, after I spoke with the embassy, and said i was expecting her arrival, they changed their mind and gave her the Visa.

So to have a rejection from UK for a holiday visa, is no big deal whatsoever, if one doesn't have a strong sponsor, one is normally asked for quite a hefty bond, used to be around 6000.

It's better to come clean on the documents, I was also find myself for overstaying in Taiwan, although it was a genuine misunderstanding, I still have to enter it on my Singapore paperwork, errors do happen, I wouldn't worry about it.
