She's not a family member - not yet, and it would be hard to prove they are durable partners without a marriage certificate.Obie wrote: ↑Thu May 13, 2021 1:02 pmThe 1st bet is correct, she will not be able to enter the ferry. If she does enter Irish shores then it is a different matter, as under EU law, Ireland cannot deport her if she is a family of an EU citizen and is accompanying that EU citizen.
Unlike the Juxtapost system between UK and EU when UK was part of EU, and EU family member without visa can seek entry at Calais, I am not sure similar arrangements exist with Ireland.
She will need to secure a visa to prevent disruption to her travel plans.
Are you saying if we get married then fly to Ireland she will not be refused entry to the country?
