schengen visa !

Post by Hova » Tue May 28, 2019 7:38 pm

Hello all ! I am a british citizen , My wife is from ghana . She is living with me in the uk . Currently on a two and a half years spouse visa. We are planning on going to spain for a week in August . I need to get her a visa from the spanish embassy . . I have noticed my flight will stop in amsterdam . We will no leave the airport . I was wondering if i also need a dutch visa for her , This is probably a stupid question but i thought i should ask anyway . Thanks for any help

Hi as Amsterdam is in Europe the visa from Spanish embassy is a Schengen Visa so is valid anywhere in Europe so you will be fine. I doubt you will need a to show your visa in Amsterdam anyway . Good luck with the visa application from Spanish , be aware you need 3 minimum months validity on your Uk visa to apply.

Her visa is valid in all Schengen space, besides if you won't leave the airport it should be fine.

Thanks for that ! Another question i have is . We both work and have bank accounts. Do we have to send bank statements and letters of employment . I Read some where . You only have to send your flight details, hotel reservations , and travel insurance certificates . And my wifes passport is this correct .Thanks for any advice

I don't think you need bank details and employment letters. But just in case maybe you want to have a bank statement with you, although again, they should only care about flight details and accomodation.

When I was on a spouse visa n applied for a Schengen visa to Spain, I had to provide proof of employment and bank statements to prove sufficient funds.

For Spain they would then expect to see apostilled marriage cert etc, which I didn't have and hence just applied for a standard visa.

You are applying for a Schengen visa. You simply apply as the spouse of an EU citizen, which means the visa fee is waived.
