I am asking this community to help me find a written source because various advisors from the Swedish Migration Agency have contradicted each other in their statements.
I am a Norwegian citizen. My wife is a Russian citizen.
I am planning to settle in Sweden for work. I want my wife to settle with me there.
My wife is currently in the Schengen area on a type C visa, so she can come with me to Sweden. But her visa expires on the 23rd of July.
If I live and work in Sweden, she is entitled to stay with me under EU law.
However, the Swedish Migration Agency have informed me that if we apply for such residency for her, the processing time can be up to ten months.
Various advisors from the Swedish Migration Agency have told me contradictory things.
Most commonly I have heard.
A: She is allowed to stay legally in Sweden while we wait for her application to process.
However, today someone from the Swedish Migration Agency told me that:
B: She has to leave Sweden while her application is processing and can only return once it is granted.
All I have is these oral (contradictory) statements from various advisors at the Swedish Migration Agency. I need a written source stating clearly whether it is A or B.
That is what I am asking for in this question.
