According to the European Commissioner there is no proof that people are getting affected by embassies breaching the freedom of movement treaty for not issuing visas to non-eu family members of EU citizen. That is why we need to sign this petition to show them that THERE ARE PEOPLE who are getting affected.

Here is what Europa advice center has written to us:

"it is not open to the EU to open proceedings for infringement against the Member States concerned unless it is evident that a significant number of individuals have been similarly affected. To date, we have not received evidence of any such pattern" - read more over here

We Want:

EC to investigate non-compliance by EU embassies around the world in accordance of EU Directive 2004/38/EC freedom of movement for non-EU family members of EU citizens

Here is what EU embassies are doing:

-Visa rejections to non-EU family members of EU citizen
-Requiring ALL documents to be presented when applying for visa as a regular applicant
-Asking fees
-Not issuing visas
-Requiring travel insurance
-Requiring hotel booking
-Requiring bank statement
-Giving excuses to waste applicant's time
-Failure to check all provided documents
-Improper visa application administration system
-Lacking direct contact with the embassy(employing visa application service such as Gerry's visa service VFS, which effectively hinders ability to contact the embassy regarding their application)
-Using expensive paid phone helpline systems
-Employing uninformed staff who has no knowledge of the EU treaty for non-eu family members
-Lengthy delays in visa processing
-Rejecting the application without enquiring further information

Who can sign:

Please sign this petition if this problem is affecting you or your family member. EACH family member must sign this petition individually. For example if there are five members of your family who is getting affected then all five members should sign this petition. Friends of affected persons may sign this petition too.
