schengen visa help needed

Post by click » Fri Sep 09, 2011 12:35 am

Hi Guys,

I'm on spouse visa of my British Partner. We are planning to have our Christmas in Berlin, Germany. As we are travelling together so do I need visit visa to travel to Berlin. I heard if you are spouse visa and you are travelling with your british citizen partner then you don't any visa to stay upto 90 days but if you travel your own then you do need visit visa.

Please can anyone confirm me this.


Many Thanks

You need a (free) schengen visa in both cases.

You can apply by post, read up on http://www.london.diplo.de

Hi Mym, Thanks for your reply its really helpful I got just one more question

My partner is British and I'm on spouse visa,
is there any way if I could apply for EU Family Member residence permit?
I heard if I get EU Family Member residence card then I don't need to apply for schengen visa to travel in EU states. But I really don't know if I'm eligible for this and I can apply for this in the UK.


Many Thanks

No, the free movement regulations do not apply to EEA Citizens in their own countries.
