Emirates Airline Stops Shikhar Dhawan’s Family From Travelling To Cape Town. Cricketer Expresses Fury On Twitter

Published on 30 December, 2017 at 12:44 pm By

Indian cricket team is presently in Cape Town, South Africa, where they will be playing three test matches, three one day international matches and three T20s starting January 5. All was well with the visitors only until Shikhar Dhawan’s family was stopped by Emirates airline from taking their connecting flight from Dubai to Cape Town.

Emirates airline stopped Shikhar’s wife and children from travelling since they did not have the birth certificate of his children and some other identity proofs at that moment. As a result, his family had to wait at the Dubai airport for the documents while Dhawan had to board the flight with his teammates.

This made the cricketer feel that the airline is unprofessional and should have notified about the want of birth certificate when they were boarding the flight from Mumbai.

However, one of the Twitter user informed Dhawan about the rule followed in South Africa as per which child’s original birth certificate must be carried while travelling to the country in view of the high child trafficking cases taking place there. Check out the tweet below:

 

 

Emirates also replied to Dhawan’s tweet requesting him to connect in private message. Have a look at the tweet:

 

 

Later, Emirates airline issued a clarification statement saying:

Since 1 June 2015, according to South African regulations, anyone travelling to the country with a minor under 18 needs to prove parenthood or guardianship – while adults travelling alone with their children need to show that they have the consent of their non-travelling partner.

Like all airlines, we must comply with the laws of every country in which we operate and this is a shared responsibility with passengers, who are required to hold valid travel documents for all countries on their itinerary.
