Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did your visa cover you for the period in question?How much did you pay please?Alex
So on what basis were you denied?
Did they just deny your child or all of you?
Of course. I am sorry to say its bad news. Under the Travel Advice given by the Foreign Office it states as an entry requirement that you need to have 6 months remaining on the passport. Therefore they were correct in not allowing you (or the child to fly). This is because even though you had a visa, the passport did not meet entry requirements.
You can see this advice here:
However whilst I do not think you can claim I will outline the process for a refund.
You need to write and set out your losses and request a refund within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not refund you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value you would need representation for trial.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Not really, you just need to ask for a refund or say you will go to Court.
Or you may be able to find one online.
Does that clarify?Alex
You can try for everything. Does that clarify? Alex
I dont think your claim would be successful for the reasons I have given. But I have outlined the process for you.
Can I clarify anything else for you today? Alex
