I have applied for a family permit (wife is Italian, I am Brazilian), as my wife accepted a job offer in the UK. My question is, do we need to travel together, or can I go before her to set up a place for us and our kids? And, do we need to enter the […]

This is anecdotal, but here’s a forum post about someone who was denied boarding at Edinburgh in March 2018 for not obtaining a visa check stamp.
