Carrie Symonds ‘barred from entering the US over Somalia trip’

August 21, 2019

Carrie Symonds, Boris Johnson’s girlfriend, has reportedly been barred from visiting the United States. 

According to the Daily Mail, Miss Symonds, 31, applied for a visa to go to America in the next few days as part of her job with a US-based environmental group, but the American authorities have blocked the request.

It is believed the decision stems from a five-day visit made last year by Miss Symonds to Somalia. 

If Miss Symonds applied for a US Electronic System for Travel Authorization (Esta) you will have an application refused for visiting Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen since March 2011.

Miss Symonds has a series of meetings in America as part of her job as an adviser for Oceana, a non-profit organisation that seeks to protect the world’s oceans.

Miss Symonds declined to comment when approached through Number 10 by the Telegraph.
