On the 1 May 2016 I left the UK voluntarily, but the Home Office paid for the tickets to go back to my country. It's been 7 months since the ban was lifted and I am planning on restarting my life in the UK in the next 2 years.

Note I entered the UK when i was 8 years old and my dad and sister applied for a right to remain but I think they overstayed and then applied for it so 10 years later after I turned 18 the Home Office denied us and then we were asked to leave. So we decided to leave voluntarily but Home Office paid and because of that we ended up with 2 years ban. So will any of this effect me applying for a work permit in the UK in the next 2 years?

    You can of course apply and your application will be taken in consideration, but whether it will be successful will depend on a lot of factors we can not know. I think our friends at Expatriates will be better able to guide you. So I will migrate the question to them. – Willeke Dec 31 '18 at 14:23

    Your question is a bit confusing. What visa did you arrive on originally? When did you (or your parents) apply for right to remain, and how old were you? How old were you when you left? Did you ever apply for any visa on your own as an adult? – DJClayworth Dec 31 '18 at 15:46
  • I did say i entered when i was 8 and left when i was 18, and i dont what visa they applied on at first as i was very young to know what was gping on. I think they came on a visitor visa and ened up over staying and during that time applied for the right the right to remain KEEPING IN MIND THATS WHEN I WAS 8 YEARS OLD. And i am planning on applying for a visa in the next 2 years HENCE WHY I ASKED THE QUESTION IN THE FIRST PLACE🙄 – Alyy98 Dec 31 '18 at 19:28
