My son is stuck in Jamaica and wants to come home to South Africa. He can fly to London then from there to Turkey, Nairobi and then Johannesburg.
Please advise how we can get an emergency transit visa so that when he arrives in London he can catch another flight.

Denied Direct Airside visa
In August 2017 my wife and I bought tickets to attend a Herbalife Nutrition workshop in Madrid, Spain. We applied and obtained visas from the Spanish Embassy. Since we had bought British Airways tickets for flights through London, we applied for Direct Airside visas. Our connecting flight was from the same platform with about 2 hours waiting. We had no intention of going into the UK other than the airport. We had no intention of going through immigration. Yo our surprise our applications were denied. We ended up buying alternative tickets through Emirates and we had a wonderful trip via Dubai. Up to now I do not understand the reason for the denied visa. The response said we applied for wrong visa but according to the website that was the correct visa.
