HI would somebody please help me? i am a UK citizen and my wife has a Thai passport with a UK marriage visa, recently we visited German and had to apply for a shengen visa, will i have to do the same for a 11 day holiday in spain? i am confused as i read that if the spouse has a valid EU visa then no?? however i don't think this is correct? please also if i have to apply how long does it take normally, as i need to book some flights and a hotel, but i don't want to do this until the visa is confirmed, but on the visa application form it does ask the reason for the visit and where will you stay? how can i give this if i have not made any booking, thanks and any reply will be a big help and thanks for your your time..Matt.
