I would like to check with you regarding a visa application to enter the UK. I would like to visit Scotland / England. I'm holding a Thai passport.
I've checked on the UK government website previously indicated that I need to apply for a Standard Visitor visa. However I'm now living in The Netherlands and holding a Dutch residence permit card as a partner (unmarried) of a Dutch citizen. On the website they also stated that I may not need a visa if both the following apply:
You’re travelling with or visiting your partner or family : Yes, I will traveling with my Dutch partner.
You don’t need a visa if both the following apply: you have an Article 10 residence card: Yes, I have a Dutch residence card your partner or family member is your sponsor: Either myself or my partner can be a sponsor.
Otherwise, you should apply for a family permit if your family member or partner are from the European Economic Area (EEA), a Standard Visitor visa, if they’re from outside the EEA.
I would like to ask for clarification/confirmation that am I eligible to apply for the EEA family permit. And if I only apply for the EEA family permit, is that sufficient to allow me to travel to the UK together with my partner?
- Regarding the documents that I need to provide in order to apply for an EEA family permit, do I need to translate from Dutch to English (at the rear of my Dutch residence card, there is a statement of my rights to stay in Netherlands as a member of Dutch family)?
- Does my partner need to apply for any other permit as both of us are staying outside UK at this moment.
Thanks for answering.
