One of my friends (one Irish and one British) are on holidays abroad in Kenya and one passport fell into an open drain while getting out of a car. Long story-short, they are now left without travel documents and their flight back home is on Tuesday 1st August.
Knowing how difficult it can be to get passport/immigration issues sorted with embassies in African countries, what should they do now? I think both are not native born and thus don't have their birth certificates or naturalisation certificates with them on hand.
I hear that emergency passports come quickly but with them lacking any documents, will the delay be long enough that they miss their flight?
