I traveled last week to New Delhi, India. When we reached passport control / immigration we discovered that my valid e-visa had my old passport's number (my travel agent by mistake used the old passport number). The rest was all fine. I was refused entry to India and they sent me back after like 32 hours at the airport.
My questions are:
- Can I blame the airline that let me board without checking my visa at the point of origin (Tel Aviv). Can I claim also compensation due to the 32 hours of trouble?
- According to IATA, Air India needs to send me back at their expense.
- I need to go back to India and I have already a new e-visa. Can I demand that Air India issues a new ticket for free?
