According to the British law a non-EEA spouse of an EEA citizen is not required to apply for a family permit or any other visa to enter the UK as long as he/she possesses an EU residence card. I'm wondering if "EEA" in this context include British nationals.
I'm a non-EEA national (who would normally require a visa to enter the UK) married to a British citizen and we both have been living in Portugal for 6 months. My spouse has been working full time for over 5 months now. I was issued an EU residence card as a family member of an EU citizen. We are considering moving to the UK in 3 months time. The question is: Do I have to apply for a family permit (which could take around 6 months to be issued) or shall we try to enter the UK without one?
