Your need to see a person before a surgery, or to bring some people to see that person, is not a medical emergency. Her need for the surgery, may be, but it is not her who wants to travel. I doubt you will get an exception. Where you might have a chance is, it says on your link that you can travel for the same reasons you can leave home, and you can leave ...

Is visiting your grandmother right now even a good idea? The UK is currently a major Covid hotspot, with a virulent new strain emerging there. Visiting a critically ill, elderly person right before a major surgery seems like a very bad idea to me. She's already a member of the most at-risk group in society of dying or suffering serious complications from ...

If it's a Schengen Information System alert “for the purposes of refusing entry in the Schengen Area”, i.e. article 24 of Regulation (EC) No 1987/2006 (as seems likely), I believe the UK never had access to those. It did have access to other alerts in the SIS but currently doesn't. Appeals are strictly under national rules so you do need to follow whatever ...

The owner (now in Ireland) could send the keys by courier (FedEx, UPS, DHL, et al) to a friend, or their aforementioned relatives, in the UK and have them drive the car to a safe location.

Based on the information given in your question, and despite the confusion over the date stamp, it seems entirely possible that the Immigration Officer intended to restrict your leave to enter (which they are allowed to do), giving you 3 months instead of the standard 6 months normally granted to a non-visa national. If this is indeed the case, you are ...

If nothing happened then and there, you're all good. However, you did indeed break the law, and had you been asked for it (you usually aren't), you would've faced a £100 fine. In fact it's even required if not leaving the transit area. While check-in/gate staff mostly haven't been checking it, for my very most recent flight (from CPH), CFS staff weren't ...

Even though you won’t enjoy much of anything during the quarantine period, you will be in the UK during that time, so you must include that in the duration of your stay (and account for the associated costs, as well as where exactly you will be staying during that time). However, you probably need to have a very good reason to come to the UK in these ...

You don't need to provide any reason to come back to India. As per the latest guidelines mentioned here, you would need to provide a negative RT-PCR report before boarding the flight. On arrival in India, your sample would be taken for checking new Covid-variants.

So yes, first and foremost, if you have ever been turned away or sent home from any country, you can expect more scrutiny at borders for a significant length of time after that. But second and probably just as important, "more scrutiny" is not "turned away." You report that the UK sent you back (it might be good to know if that was "...

The UK and the Republic of Ireland (commonly just called Ireland) share a land border with each other on the island of Ireland, with the Republic of Ireland to the south and the Northern Ireland (which is part of the UK) to the north. It is possible to cross that border without any immigration checks. They have a close relationship and have a free-movement ...

Q1: India is not currently on the ‘red list’. When you arrive in England you must travel directly to the place you’re staying and not leave until 10 days have passed. You are allowed to stay with friends; you must quarantine in one place for the full quarantine period, where you can have food and other necessities delivered, and it must be at the address you ...

This question would probably be a better fit for law.stackexchange.com. With that said, I'll try to answer it from the legal perspective. Firstly, guidance is not law. Guidance is instead usually (a) a summary of what the author of the guidance considered to be the law at the time of writing, and/or (b) a collection of recommendations which are not legally ...

The main factors are: did you start crossing before the driver started turning? (if yes, you have right of way, and the driver's honking may be illegal harassment -- UK motoring law bans the use of the horn except "while your vehicle is moving and you need to warn other road users of your presence" or "when another road user poses a danger&...
