I also really never heard for an non Eu endering a visa required country without a visa simply by being accompanied by an EU spouse, ever in general.So eccuse my ignorance in the matter but I cannot risk the legal implications of such move.
You are right. Wasn't aware that the spouse can apply for a C visa. But as you also mentioned, type D is the one that most officers are looking for (as it indicates long term stay instead of short term).jul1 wrote: ↑Sat Feb 16, 2019 4:26 pm
