UK PM Boris Johnson ’ s girlfriend Carrie Symonds (centre) in Somaliland .
Carrie Symonds , the girlfriend of Britain ’ s Prime Minister , Boris Johnson , has been barred from entering the United States .
As reported by various foreign media, Symonds , a former British Conservative Party communications director , is currently working as a senior adviser at Oceana, a US – based nonprofit ocean conservation campaign group .
Thirty- one- year – old Symonds moved into Downing Street together with Johnson in July , becoming the first unmarried couple to live in No. 10 .
She is thought to have applied for a visa to work in the United States as part of her job at Oceana, but the immigration authorities have rejected her application, Express UK has reported .
It is understood that the decision was due to her five -day trip to east Africa last year .
The trip saw Symonds , together with Somali- born social activist Numco Ali , visit Somaliland – the northern territory that unilaterally declared independence from Somalia in 1991, following the outbreak of the civil war , but is not recognised internationally.
Symonds travelled to Somaliland for five days with friend Nimco Ali , who campaigns against female genital mutilation and was born in Somaliland.
The pair met with Somaliland President Muse Bihi Abdi to discuss women ’ s issues and sea pollution.
Miss Symonds had intended to visit the US as part of her work with Oceana , a non- profit organisation which works to protect oceans .
The self- proclaimed Republic of Somaliland has become the target of Donald Trump ’ s travel ban on seven countries , which included Somalia.
The Trump administration has banned immigration from the country and subjected all non -immigrant travel to additional scrutiny , Daily Mail added .
Both British and US authorities have yet to comment on the matter.
However , a diplomatic source has insisted : “ We are hopeful this can be sorted out in time for Ms Symonds to go to the US as planned , ” Express said .
Boris Johnson , is yet to finalise divorce proceedings with his wife of 26 years, Marina Wheeler , with whom he has four children .
The Prime Minister met Symonds in 2012 when she joined Johnson ’ s re – election campaign for London mayor after a two – year stint as press officer for the Conservative Party .
