What do I need to travel to London during the scheduled Brexit transition date? [on hold]

I’m a Belgian citizen. I’ll be traveling to London from March 25th until March 31th included. I’ll be working (following a training, actually) from March 25th until March 28th included, but will stay for tourism a few extra days to “live” the Brexit.

I’ll be able to come to London as a European citizen using only my European ID card, but how will I need to leave? Do I need a passport or something similar? I plan to come and go with the Eurostar.

Canadian SME working in UK for 2 weeks

I want to bring a highly skilled subject matter expert (SME) in aviation regulations to the UK from Canada to provide 2 weeks of classroom-based lectures in his area of expertise. We are paying him to develop the 2 week training program which he will be doing in Canada.

The content will then be delivered in our classroom at no cost other than his travel expenses so he will not be paid for any work in the UK. The two week session is a free, bolt-on session to a longer 10-week training course.

Can somebody tell me which visa would best suit this scenario?

Family visit visa refused!

My in-laws who are both retired have been refused a visa. Both have been to the UK collectively 5 times in the last 7 years.

Refusal notices indicate no administrative review or appeal. Any ideas or thoughts will be appreciated. Refusal notice states that father in law cannot prove his income. As his wife was intending to travel with him, she has been refused as a result.

Does anyone think a speculative humble letter to the Home Office might work detailing the fact that they have visited before with no issues and we will be fully supporting their stay?enter image description here

Use unspent miles for an unplanned trip?

I have accumulated some miles in one of the European airline programmes. I generally tend to use low cost airlines for my travels and as a result I have already booked flights for my summer vacation already. Now I am also facing an issue of unspent miles that might expire around June. Would you recommend that I use the miles to book a flight that I wasn’t planning? Is there an easy way to ‘keep’ the miles until the next year?

Victim of a Vacation Rental Scam, how should I get the refund?

I booked a property via booking.com on 23rd for a stay in London UK from June 1 to June 7, 2019. I used my credit card. They pulled the full amount on 25th. After that on several occasion I updated my check-in request in booking.com but the request timed out due to no response from the property owner. I also tried to reach via phone and emails but little to no response from them.

Here are the reasons why I strongly believe that I am a victim of scam:

  1. The property I booked is no longer exist in booking.com. But the property name is Westminster Gardens with address 24 Strutton Ground, Westminster Borough, London SW1P 2HR, United Kingdom. I checked this address and this is an address of a hair salon.
  2. They are using same pictures with different name and different location in booking.com. New name: London Prime- homes in West End and Westminister with a new address: 104-105 Pall Mall, Westminister Borough, London, SW1Y 5EW, United Kingdom.
  3. They send me 2nd invoice saying that the amount is unpaid.
  4. They have used 3 different phone numbers in 3 different places and 2 different email address: In Booking.com website has: +447553076066 . The invoice they sent on dec 25 has: +447523145097 and following email address: booking@ourfamilyhomesltd.com. They again send a 2nd invoice on Jan 8 saying that the amount is unpaid even though they pulled the full amount on Dec 25. And the 2nd has phone number: +447923337233 and different email address: abv.homes@outlook.com.
  5. The first phn number +447553076066 is affiliated with an organization in UK: www.champinternational.org.

Made a complaint to booking.com but it is been almost a month and they have not found any resolution.
