Arriving at the border without an entry visa
It is always best for your non-EU family members to be well informed in advance and have all the necessary documents before starting their journey.
However, if they arrive at the border without an entry visa, the border authorities should give them the opportunity to prove by other means that they are your family members. If they manage to prove it, they should be issued with an entry visa on the spot.
HOWEVER it's not clearly stated if thats for the Schengen room only. I've sent a inquiry to them asking for clarification on this. Maybe there's a little loophole we may can make use of. If it's then necessary to travel with her so it be but yeah this paragraph deep dive is making me sick....
