Yellow slip / imagration

Postby gary shannon » Thu Apr 07, 2016 11:04 am

does a Cypriot yellow slip give you the same rights as a Cypriot ? Basicly my wife is non EU and I am British and I want to take her with me to uk but will she still need to obtain a visa ? Or can we just produce our marriage certificate yellow slips and passports ?

Thanks in advance

yellow slip has no meaning in the UK, she will need a visa.

But she is married to a British man and is pregnant so is dependant on me ?

Yes, but if she was in the UK and married you, she would have need a visa to get in, in the first place.

Even if you are married you still have to apply for her to stay there or get in. I don't see the problem, getting a visa should be straight forward, you may even be able to do it on line.

So, if you don't want to take the chance that they may refuse her entry, best get the visa up front.

The problem I am facing is that I am a soldier and was based in Cyprus and now I must go back to the uk at the end of the month and I am stuck because I can't leave my pregnant wife here with no family ect , I'll look into the visa option and see if I can get a fast one but I also hear they are expensive to get , thanks for the help it's appreciated

Depends what visa you want. I am British wife is non EU and we normally get an EEA family permit which is free but of limited validity, ie ok for a short holiday.

All visas can be applied and paid for on line but the applicant only must then attend at a visa centre in Nicosia to hand over the passport, yours too, and other supporting papers, eg yellow slip, marriage cert, birth cert, and to be fingerprinted and photoed, possibly interviewed, It then normally takes three weeks or so for the passport and papers to come back.

Are you still serving ? Will you be serving in the UK..if so . Have you tried the various military welfare contacts? They might know how to help, otherwise go to the visa bit of gov.uk. Site and start form filling...its a monster......e
