Stuck in Argentina - bring us home to the UK

Stuck in Argentina - bring us home to the UK

We would like Mr. Raab to help organise repatriation flights for British citizens stranded in Argentina.

Argentina is currently in a lock down because of quarantine which means all of its borders are being shut. Many British nationals are stranded and are in need of urgent repatriation flights back to the UK, organised by the government.

Why is this important?

Many other countries have organised repatriation flights to bring their citizens home across the world, and by the looks of it the British government has organised these flights for its citizens in Peru. We ask Mr. Raab to please help us and get us home to the UK - where our families are worried about us and we are worried about them.

There are currently limited flights out of Argentina, which the British Embassy has suggested we take, that cost far too much money to book. None of them are direct and we risk our health by going through countries where there is no lock down, especially if our connecting flight is cancelled and we are trapped on the way home. With so many of us here, it does not make sense for the government to leave each individual to "commercially repatriate" themselves.

It is the responsibility of the British government to look after its citizens, especially during an international crisis like this one. Please bring us home!
