I am a German citizen. My wife is a Pakistani passport holder with a German normal visa which is in her passport. We have been married since 2015. I would like to travel to the UK with my wife for a week. We have lived together in Germany since 2016. I would like to know if she can apply for a EEA family permit to travel to the UK with me. If so, which documents does she need in order to apply?

To qualify for an EEA family permit, certain relationships require dependency. In particular, parents and adult children fall under the directive's definition of "family member" only of they are dependant on the EEA national.

This criterion does not apply to spouses (nor to underage children). You can therefore ignore it in your spouse's application.
