It was good of you to post your experience (I know you've had trouble, but never with the airlines).

The Lithuanian embassy in London confirms (Lithuania allows that only from July this year!!!) visa free travel under the conditions you meet. The Timatic database from the IATA also clarifies this point. It is just not clear what reference database/book those budget airlines use.

Hello DAMMYDAMMY, you dont need to worry about Ryne air and easy jet. I went to Poland on friday with my wife thru easy jet, we had no problem with them. They were fanstatic. The only problem we encountered was in Krakow with the immigration officer who wanted to stamp on my RC but I refused so she just let me in. But, to be on a safe side keep your marriage certificate with you when you are travelling as those immigration officer will definetely want to have a look at it. Enjoy your Holliday.

All EU countries apply directive 2004/38/EC.

Switzerland does not accept non-schengen issued residence cards.

Switzerland is not a member of the EU and so the directive does not apply there. Freedom of movement does, however, and it is possible to get a free visa under similar arrangements.

Travel alone and you will need a visa.

One can travel to Swiss on a Schengen visa , IMO.

A visa national is required to have a Schengen visa for Switzerland unless they hold a residence permit issued by a Schengen country (and that residence permit has been reported as 'Schengen-active' to Brussels but I believe most are). That's because Switzerland itself is a Schengen member and not an EEA member.

You can, but I don't think that was the question asked - sorry if this was not clear.

It would be pretty cool (but unrealistic) if a HUGE number of people travelling visa-free from UK/Ireland to mainland Europe would ask the Swiss Embassy, if they are allowed to enter Switzerland visa-free.

Since Switzerland is the only country asking for a visa (for pretty silly reasons), they would be solely responsible to issue it, even if Switzerland is not the main destination.

For example you want to travel to Germany(allowed visa-free), but need to cross Switzerland >>for a few metres<< on your way...

If they would get ~50 requests per day about this, they might eventually switch on their brains and give in...

I agree it's rather silly of them.

This is an instance where it would be better to start another thread in the EEA route forum. (The reason being it's nothing to do with your original thread and it would be better in the EEA route section).
