Thanks for your question, my name is Nic I will do whatever I can to help you today.

Is he a uk national?

Do you have an American Express credit card?

yes he is a uk national but we do not have an american express card

Expert:  UK-Justice replied 4 years ago.
Thanks.

You can purchase a plane ticket for him online,

If you had an Amex card one would have been able to been collected from Thailand.

However if you have another credit card speak with the issuer and see if an additional card can be collected from Thailand. But I would suggest limiting its use.

He can get back to the uk by you getting a ticket for him. I assume he has his passport.

But buy a ticket online and he could be on a flight later today.
