I have applied for a family permit (wife is Italian, I am Brazilian), as my wife accepted a job offer in the UK. My question is, do we need to travel together, or can I go before her to set up a place for us and our kids? And, do we need to enter the UK by an airport pr can I use a train or ferry from Europe?
You cannot go before her. She can go before you, or you can go together. See https://www.gov.uk/family-permit/eligibility:
The EEA citizen you’re joining must either:
- be in the UK already
- be travelling with you to the UK within 6 months of the date of your application
You can enter the UK through any border control point.
