I'm non-EU spouse of an EU (Italian) citizen. I have a residence card issued by the Italian authorities, stating that I'm a non-EU family member. My question is can I travel to Sweden without my spouse and stay up to 90 days there?
Your non-EU spouse, (grand)children or (grand)parents do not need to get a visa from the country they are travelling to if:
- They have a residence permit or visa from another country in the border-free Schengen area (see list below) and the country they are travelling to belongs to that area.
NB: Residence permits issued by countries outside the Schengen area do not allow non-EU family members to travel visa-free to a Schengen area country.
So to answer your question, NO, you don't need visa to travel to Sweden for up to 90 days in any 180 days period!
This assumes, however, that you haven't been in other Schengen countries. Strictly speaking, with a residence permit you're still only allowed 90 days in any 180-day period in the Schengen area, not counting days when in the country that issued the permit. In practice, though, there's no way to enforce this easily, because border crossings in the Schengen area are not tracked.
(As an aside, the 90/180 rule does not apply when you are traveling with your EU family member; in that case you fall under the freedom of movement directive.)
Yes. Up to 90 days in any EU country. You could go to Norway for a day and do another 90, really, if you'd like.
But don't ask important questions like these on the web. Ask the proper authorities
