I am a Turkish citizen who is studying in Germany (with EEA residence permit & studium visa). I need to attend a conference in Toulouse, France and many of the flights are connected to London.
My departing flight from London Stansted is at 6:50pm on the same day.
Therefore, I need to know if I would need a transit visa (DATV) from UK. As far as I know, RyanAir does not do transit flight so I'll have to re check-in for the next flight. Which means I'll have to pass border control.
I know that a regular Turkish citizen would have to apply for a DATV in these conditions, but what if I have a common format residence format from Germany (with 4 months left on it, but it will be renewed).
Here is what is written in many of the other posts as requirements:
You might be eligible for the ‘transit without visa concession’ if:
you arrive and depart by air
have a confirmed onward flight which leaves within 24 hours
have the right documents for your destination
One of the following must also apply:
you have a valid uniform format residence permit issued by an EEA state
