Visiting the UK with a Dutch valid residence card
My husband and I would like to visit some friends in the UK. I don't have a problem since I am an EU citizen. My husband is Egyptian and holds a permanent residence card issue by the Dutch authorities.
Does he need a visa to visit the UK? Or with a valid residence in an EU member he can travel freely to another EU member?
I found this on the UK visa immigration website but I just want to make sure I understand it right:
If you are a non-EEA national who holds a valid genuine residence card, issued to you as the family member of an EEA national who is exercising free movement rights in another EEA State (i.e. not your EEA relative’s Member State of nationality) under Article 10 of Directive 2004/38/EC (the ‘Free Movement Directive’), you may use this document for travel to the UK if you are accompanying your EEA national relative here, or joining your EEA national relative in the UK.
3. Evidence you need to bring in addition to your residence card
In order to be admitted to the UK, we would expect to see the following in addition to your valid residence card:
•your valid passport
•evidence that you are the family member of an EEA national (for example, your marriage certificate or birth certificate)
So with his residence card and our marriage certificate would it be enough to be admitted to the UK? Or do I need a visa? I just want to make sure we don't have any problem at the airport when we leave and when we enter the UK.
If a visa is needed. what kind of visa? a tourist? a family member of an EU member??
Many thanks in advance for your support!!
