tui warns four year old he will be barred from uk cruise because his passport expires in five months

Sumary of Tui warns four-year-old he will be barred from UK cruise because his passport expires in five months:

  • Britain’s biggest holiday company has told the grandparents of a four-year-old boy that he will be prevented from boarding an Anglo-Scottish cruise at Southampton because his passport has only five months to run.
  • The Tui cruise, aboard Marella Explorer, departs from the Hampshire port on 28 July for 10 nights, visiting ports in England and Scotland.
  • “The lady that my wife, Wendy, saw in our local Tui store yesterday tried very hard to get a positive answer from various people but kept coming back with the same answer: we would not be allowed on the cruise due to there not being six months left on the child’s passport.
  • My son will continue to try and get an emergency passport appointment for the boy but it doesn’t look promising at the moment.
  • Some cruise lines demand passports from passengers boarding UK-only cruises on the grounds that the vessel may make an unscheduled stop in a European Union country.
  • Even if that were applied, the only legal restriction on the four-year-old’s passport is that it must be valid for three months after the intended day of return – which is on 7 August, when the passport will still have over four months to run.
