    In theory you can, but it will go much more smoothly if you get a visa beforehand. The visa is free. – phoog Mar 22 at 1:40

  • Well that is a different question. Did you specify that the application was for a family member (i.e., that the 2004/38/EC apply)? What reason did they give for the refusal? – phoog Mar 22 at 13:03
  • OP has not returned to clarify. Putting on hold. – Mark Mayo May 14 at 6:45
