"I have this card because I have lived in the UK in accordance with the conditions as laid down by law" End of conversation. The question itself is very stupid and I wasn't expecting. He should know that the Home office issued me PR after satisfied with my documents and this is nonsense to asking m...

What do you mean?
I mean they put entry stamp on my passport. I thought it should not be but, I realise that if you are travelling from non EU country then it is normal to stamp on your passport by IO (May be I am wrong).

Perhaps the Spanish forgot the court case they lost in 2003 see Case C-157/03 EU Commission vs Kingdom of Spain the resident permit was refused because the Spanish claim the the EU family member must state the reason for entry when applying for the entry visa. Result: Spain lost at the ECJ http://c...

. EasyJet you will not be able to get through to, and the embassy has already said you require a visa. When I applied to vfs global, they also advice me that I can travel without visa if my visa says 'family member of an eea and if travelling together (They were not pretty sure due to my PR). Howev...

cool, then why don't you withdraw your application and request your passport back to avoid any unnecessary stamps. If they reject my visa then it will go in my favour anyway. Legally they cannot refuse visa to me except for reasons of "public policy, public security or public health. My marriage ce...

From what I know, when one applies, upon receiving the application, they place a stamp on the page where the Schengen visa should go (if I remember correctly). If it is rejected, they normally don't just give it back saying it's incomplete, they simply reject it. I will be honestly surprised if the...

the problem is that you have the PR sticker which does not say "family member" etc. but I presume your RC is still in the passport? Then you only show this at the border and travel without the visa with the marriage certificate. And on a practical note, there isn't much anyone can do against a fore...

Tell them that if they do not issue the visa immediately, you will get Solvit involved. As an aside, Why are you actually applying for the visa? You have a UK issued Residence Card, right? I have UK issued PR now, and in my PR it doesn't say family member of eea. Also i want to get visa to avoid un...

I don't believe that they would accept this letter as explanation. If they refused and reject my application then I will complain to European Commission. Can I sue to Spanish Consulate if they refuse to give me visa??
