This board is designed to help in immigration-matters. If you ask a specific questions there can be specific answers. You are not even asking a question, so it´s unclear to me what you expect...? All your post tells us is that "someone" obviously wants to "go to Lithuania". That leaves quite a lot t...

Why did you even apply for a visa?

As long as you travel together, you can just go without visa:

For the purposes of this discussion, how do you assert it contradicts 2004/38/EC? I was convinced that it's legal AND possible to enter the UK, as an EEA-family-member, without visa, because of the following provisions: >>2004/38/EC<< , Article 5 Section 4: Where a Union citizen, or a family member...

EEA-family member to the UK without visa, or not?

I'm more and more confused if trips to the UK for EEA-family-members are 100% possible: While the legal base for such trips seems to be 2004/38/EC and "The Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006", I just found the following cited in another forum: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sit...

Re: EU citizen to UK

Supervisor asked me why I have no visa and I told him that this is an EU passport! That´s mainly due to some of the visa-check-clerks not understanding the visa rules in full. Had a similar experience when travelling from Frankfurt(Germany) to Larnaca(Cyprus) with a Belgian ID-card(not passport). T...

ILR does not count as a residence card as per directive. Your mum can travel without valid residence card though, as long as her husband travels with her, and it´s all described here: www.immigrationboards.com/viewtopic.php?t=95372 (scroll down to " EEA family member without Residence Card (Part 2) ...
