I am a British national resident in the UK. My wife is Jordanian, resident in the UK with me. She has a UK biometric residency permit. We were married in the UK and the marriage is registered in the UK.
- Does my wife need visas to travel with me on holiday in France and Spain? I understand from EU Directives that she does not.
- Would we be able to leave the UK by ferry to France if my wife does not have a French visa but can prove that she is married to me and resident in the UK?
- If visas are necessary but the French or Spanish consulates were NOT to grant the visas, would this be in contravention of EU Directives/Law?
- If the answer to question 3 is "Yes, it would be unlawful", what action can one take to get the visas?
