I am an EEA national and my wife and her parents are European Union residence card holders. Can my in laws travel to the UK without a visa?

  • @Glorfindel "European" should be preceded by "a," not "an."

Only if you're already in the UK or you're travelling with them. In that case they can enter by presenting their passport and residence card.

    And only if the UK doesn't crash out of the EU in 6 months :)

  • But airline boarding did not allow them to go but immigration told them they can go Sep 30, 2018 at 8:14
  • @Singhjagroop The check-in staff was wrong then. Tell them to check the TIMATIC database, which says "Visa required, except for Passengers with a "Permanent Residence Card of a Family Member of a Union Citizen" or a Residence Card of a Family Member of a Union Citizen issued by Italy to to family members of a national of Switzerland or an EEA Member State. They must travel with or travel to join the national of Switzerland or EEA Member State."

  • @Singhjagroop Also contact the Airline and get compensation, again quoting TIMATIC
