I read online that you have to have been residing in the UK for 3 months before applying for the visa. Is this true?

Hello,

Ive planned a holiday in Spain in Jan2018, but my UK Spouse Visa expires in Feb 2018. Ive read on the Spanish Visa website that "Your residence permit must be valid for at least another 90 days beyond your return date from Schengen area". Can you please advise if this is true? unfortunately, I booked my tickets and hotels already!

I have just received my Fiance visa which is valid from 13 Dec 17 to 13 June 18. I wish to travel with my fiance in the month of March 2018 to Hungary & other Schengen countries. I have few questions:

Do I need to apply for Schengen Visa?
If yes, from India or can I apply from the UK as well?
If I have to apply from India then it is a rule to apply within 90 days from travel which is not currently. So what should I do? any advice?
Also within how many days do I need to enter the UK from the fiance visa received?
Please respond. Thank you.

Hi Everyone,
Last year I had to travel to London to obtain a Spanish tourist visa for my non EU wife, although it was painless the visa was only issued for a short period after the holiday.
My question is, why are we not given a longer visa as we may wish to travel again this year.

It seems EU citizens with non EU partners get preferential treatment as if they have a residence permit they do not even need a UK visa?
Also they can no doubt apply for a 6 month or longer visa allowing entry at any time.

WHERE IS THE EQUALITY???

Default UK spouse BRP, US citizen, Spanish visa needed

Hi there,

I am a US citizen that has been living in the UK on a spouse visa for four years with my british citizen husband. In one year (June 2019) I will be able to apply for permanent residency. I have just begun a Phd between two universities, one in the UK and one in Spain. I will continue to live in the UK however, I will be enrolled at and paid by the university in Spain for two years come this September 2018. I will also have to take some trips to Spain for 1-3 weeks at a time. I am having a difficult time figuring out how to go about this. I understand I will need a visa to be a student in Spain. Is this a visa I can apply for from the UK with my current spouse visa? Is applying for a visa for another country going to impact my application for permanent leave to remain in one years time? Thanks for any advice!

Good evening,

Another Schengen question..I'm hoping to travel to Iceland in March with my Filipino wife who has a spouse visa and BRP to reflect this. Obviously she needs a Schengen visa which we have to obtain through the Danish embassy (via VFS), but will she be applying as the family member of an EU/EEA national.? I've seen it stated that UK nationals don't become EU nationals until they leave the UK. The wording and guidance seems confusing. It's important because the required documents change slightly and it could mean we can just turn up without making a booking. Any thoughts are most welcome. I have contacted VFS direct but have had no reply as of yet.

In the EU, yes, you get the Schengen visa for the country you will go first then my understanding is you can use it whilst it lasts to travel to other Schengen countries. Be aware that my last Schengen visa for Spain was only lasting for three weeks.
