Family Members of EU/EEA nationals exercising Treaty Rights in another EU/EEA country
Family members are:
The direct descendants (children) who are under the age of 21 or are dependants, and those of the spouse or partner.
The dependant direct relatives in the ascending line (e.g. parents) and those of the spouse or partner.
Please check the title on your UK residence card/sticker to establish whether you hold a "Residence Permit" or "Residence Documentation". THEY ARE NOT THE SAME AND DIFFERENT REQUIREMENTS APPLY.
If you hold an EU/EEA Residence Card (in the UK a sticker in the passport or a separate plastic card entitled Residence Documentation) according to Article 5, cf. Article 10 of EU Directive 38/2004, you do not need a visa for travel to Denmark or Iceland, but you must be accompanied by your EU/EEA spouse/partner/parent. The old style stamp preceding the EU Residence Documentation sticker is also accepted for visa free travel as long as it refers to the holder being a family member of an EU/EEA national exercising Treaty Rights (UK nationals living and working in the UK do not exercise Treaty Rights).
If you are travelling to another EU/EEA country other than Denmark or Iceland you should check with that country's embassy in the UK whether they also accept you as being visa exempt.
It is advisable to print this page and to present it together with your letter from UK Border Agency regarding your Residence Documentation and proof of your relationship with the EU/EEA national to the airline at the point of departure or Danish/Icelandic Border Control on entry into Denmark or Iceland in case of problems.
