Just to give the facts : The UK immigration has been at JHB INternational Airport for many years (and for that matter throughout the world.)
They are calles ALO's (Airline Liason Officers) but they are senior (normally) UK immigration officers.
Just to get down to the nitty gritty. Remember as you can see in the letter directed to me, it is the Airline's
responsibility to make sure all
their passengers are correctly documented not
the SA immigrations services as in this case.
If I can go into a little bit of depth it goes into levels ... my company checks level 3 which is for fraud under microscopes and other gadgets.
The airline must at least make sure the pax is correctly documented which means :
a. Has he / she got a valid passport.
b. Is the pax in front of you the passport holder.
c. Is the pax correctly documented to his destination.
SA is easy - no visa to the UK but the airline must make sure that the passport is not false.
A SA passport is very to see - of course if you know what you do !!
Yes we do I can add.
Hope it help
