Family members of EU/EEA and Swiss nationals

Family member means:

• spouse / partner / common law spouse

• children who are under the age of 21 or are dependent, and the children of the spouse or partner.

• the parents and the parents of the spouse or partner who have been financially dependent on the EU/EEA and Swiss citizen for at least last 12 months.

If you think you qualify for visa facilitation you will need to show proof that you meet all of these criteria when you submit your Schengen visa (type C) application. The accelerated procedure means that you do not have to answer the questions on the Schengen visa application number 19, 20, 31, 32, 33 and fewer supporting documents are required. Family members of EU, EEA or Swiss citizens must present documents to prove their relationship and fill in fields 34 and 35 of the visa application form.

Directive 2004/38/EC governs visa facilitation and visa exemptions for family members with a visa-required nationality of EU/EEA/Swiss nationals who are exercising or have exercised their right of free movement. They may be entitled to a relaxed (free of charge and accelerated) visa procedure. An EU/EEA/Swiss national is exercising his or her right of free movement if he or she moves to or resides in (or has recently moved to or resided in) a member state other than that of which he/she is a national.
