Best thing you did was get the Schengen.Mercyknight wrote:So I was interested to see if we'd have been able to travel without a Schengen visa (my wife is South African and has ILR in the UK) and she's married to me (UK Citizen) - in the end we got a Schengen visa for peace of mind.
However, Ryanair never checked her Schengen and just asked if she was married to me and asked to see her Biometric Residence card and put their stamp on the ticket. No Schengen check this far.
We had no problems getting on the plane and had we travelled without one we'd have crossed this hurdle.
When we got to Lisbon. I took our British passports and my wife's South African passport to Non-EEA line (we were the only ones in it) and the boarder office flicked through her passport and found the Schengen visa and scanned it. At this point I reckon we'd have been allowed to apply for a Schengen visa at the border under EU law?
What do you guys think?

We (Myself, wife and son) are British citizens and my parents Indian passport holder having ILR since 2006.
We would like to travel together to Spain for holiday (for a week) in coming weeks. Wondering if my parents need visa before we travel.
Looking into Spain's visa eligibility they are looking for following specific word in the residence permit, "Residence Card of a Family Member of an EEA/EU National". Looking into French website, they mention visa exemption for "their UK residency states “Family Member of an EEA national” or “permanent residence card”
My parents have ILR stamp on their passport and don't have a residency card.
Can my parents travel with me without Visa to Spain? NO They will need a Schengen visa. Without one the airline will refuse them boarding as they will not be permitted entry by Spanish border control.
Can you please refrain from posting your exact same query in various topics. Continue in your existing topic you already have!!Sincejan wrote:Hello Guys need help
I'm a Pakistani national and my wife is Spanish national.
We got married on last year November in Pakistan. We planned to meet and spend sometime together in France.
I applied to French embassy clearly staying on cover letter that I will be Joining my wife in France under the free movement law.
I was asked to provide the tickets and hotel booking which I did along with marriage registration certificate arrested by foreign ministry. On interview day I was asked to get my marriage certificate legalised by Spanish embassy. My application was taken and after few days I got a refusal saying my marriage doesn't constitute to be valid. I sent my marriage certificate to Spanish embassy and got the registration certificate legalised.
I again applied in French embassy. On interview day I was treates really badly by the frencFrench embassy now asking me if I had REGISTERED my marriage with Spanish embassy. I told them I was asked to get it legalised only. They took my application and again same refusal.
I have checked with Spanish embassy and registro civil takes more than a year. Please help what should i do.
There's nowhere in EU law which say register the marriage with embassy. Can anybody guide me any other ways. Please help
Yes, your spouse needs a Schengen visa.e2saleh wrote:Hi,
Apologies if this is a repeated question. I actually went through many other posts but could not find an exact case like mine. My scenario is:
- Myself and two kids are all British nationals
- My wife has a resident permit (spouse of a UK settled person - obtained as FLR-M).
We would like to go to Italy for a week visit, does my wife need a Schengen visa?
