DATV needed for someone flying through LHR to USA

Folks,
Hi.

My parents are going to fly from BOM to SFO through LHR with Virgin Atlantic.

I called the VA reps at their HQ, and they directed me to the visa for UK website. As per that website, you dont need a DATV (Direct Airside Transit Visa), if you are just transiting through their International Airport and you have a visa for the destination.

But some of my friends said that they dont go Virgin Atlantic because of this need for DATV.

I asked my father to go ask VA office in Mumbai, and apparently they left that place some 2 years back even though they list that address on their website.

My father also went to UK consulate in Mumbai and the bhau at the counter said we may need the visa, while the neighboring bhau on the counter said, we dont need it. They then unanimously concluded that we should contact VA office in Delhi?

Has anyone flown recently on VA to USA from India through Heathrow? Did you get a DATV?

Re: DATV needed for someone flying through LHR to USA

I flew British Air long back Hyd-LHR- LAX and no visa was needed.

Is the airport only Heathrow or are they going via Gatwick too.

Check the terminal numbers on the ticket. If all are in the same terminal, no visa should be needed.

And welcome to the world of Angrezi Babudom. Where do you think Desi Babus inherited all the 'Udhar jao' plicies from?

Now what exactly were you talking about. Probably you could use the Jagmohan ID (it is still unbanne) and post in the Lal mirchi section about it.

As long as the connecting flight is from Heathrow, I dont see why they would need a visa.

But your Canada requires a transit visa for coming to USA. My parents were booking flights via Toronto, they were asked to get a transit visa even for only a 4 hour layover. May be all countries are doing that for USA, thanks to Trump having hardened the entry rules.
