I'm an Italian citizen residing and working in the Netherlands. My wife is Brazilian. Does she need to pass a "Civic Integration exam" in order to join me in the Netherlands and apply for residence?
According to ind.nl, the procedure to obtain a "residence permit" or "mvv" requires such exam. But to obtain a "certificate of lawful residence" (which is specific for family members of EU citizens) no such requirement is mentioned.
As I understand, these are two alternate means for her to reside: one more general, another under EU "free movement" laws. Is this correct?
Is this exam really not necessary in our case then (if we take the "certificate of lawful residence" path)?
