Hello Zee 11, if your in law has the communitario resident card, just tell her to buy ticket immediately.tell her to hold marriage certificate, the family book, the husband working contract, 3 months pay slip
I arrived in UK February 1 with my Spanish family member resident card.but my husband came with the kids and we all travelled back together.don, t waste time.tell her to buy ticket immediately. My husband also held the tenancy agreement letter and council tax bill.just tell her to hold everything she used to apply.I wish her the best.

What airline did you took and which airport did you landed? Did they asked question to you in airport in spain about the visa or just in uk?

Can you apply for national insurance right away? Or you need to apply for residence card first?

With Family Permit you can, with just the stamp probably not.

Thank you so much.. Dont worry put application with correct documents... N i guess that not straightforward emails were just an excuses for home office to put application on hold. They must have had some internal or political issues that affected visa applicants... I know 5 to 6 cases including me who got visa within 20 working days...
And i dont know how country wise visa things works.. But this is what happens in Indian.....
