Hello Liz,
Please make sure all documents including your photos are in A4 sized paper.
I must say here that I took normal pix to the VAC in Abuja and none of it was scanned. Meaning I didn't submit any photo.
Also make sure ur spouses Passport info page, entry visa and residence card photocopies are attested by a lawyer. ( just a lawyers stamp would do. That's all I had on mine)
As listed , submit everything.
Please prepare your mind for the wait but u might be lucky u get it on time.
Lastly , pray ooo I mean pray and never stop believing.
All the best with your application
. Cheers

Hi Merzit,
Did you involve SOLVIT ?

For me it's day 144, and I got SOLVIT involved and it's the 10th week since ... which is their "regular" timeline on SOLVIT side, but still nothing so far :(.

She needs a visa since she is not holding a residence card yet.

SOLVIT is en entity from the European commision to help solve problems regarding EU rights.
You can try to let them know about your case, and they will follow up with home office.
See here http://ec.europa.eu/solvit/

I don't know what it's worth, but I guess everything that could help is to be tried.

Cheers, and hang in there.

My understanding was that as long as she is travelling with you, she doesn't need to get a Schengen visa to go to other European countries. If she decides to travel by herself then she will need to go through the normal immigration process of that country.

Good day everyone, I've been following this forum for over 5 months, since I found it. Actually it has been my comforter over these last few months, especially when I read about people getting their visa, it gave me hope.
Though it's my first message, after getting my visa I decided to comment maybe others might get hope thru it. My timeline is:
I'm EU citizen and my wife, s Nigerian. She applied at Abuja on 03/08/2017.
15/08/17: email from Ukvi informing receipt of visa application and awaiting decision.
20/08/17: not straightforward email.
30/08/17: I made a phone call to know reason for delay and was told that my application was escalated n would receive email from Ukvi, which I didn't.
10/10/17: I sent an email for second escalation n received the usual blablabla that they were working on it.
03/01/2018: sent an email for the third escalation, received reply, still working on it.
29/01/2018: another email but by this time I was fed up with the whole issue that I bore my mind in the email accusing them of being heartless n inconsiderate. I was really mad n I made them knew about it, of course without insulting them neither did I beg them as I used to. This time they replied that they were gonna pass it to the shift manager, never heard of that before then.
05/02/2018: email from TLS that decision taken n passport posted back to me. Didn't even receive email from Ukvi informing me n I was worried.
07/02/2018: passport received with visa dated 31/01/2018.
I'm so happy after this long wait. At the end 190 days, 133 working days.
I just wanna use this opportunity to encourage those still in this mess. Have faith it will soon be Ur turn to give a testimony.

99% of the Airlines will not board you if you don't have a visa or a Residence Card, some people succeeded to be admitted in the Schengen Area but arriving by train or by car, it's really unlikely that you can board a plane without a document that certifies that you are a family member of a union citizen.

No because it's a UK visa, and the UK visa system is separated from the Schengen visa system.
