Hello there, I am a UK born national of 60 years. My son is also UK citizen. His wife is Russian by birth. They want to go to Ireland and live for some months. According to EU law that I have been reading, I understand that she is allowed to enter along with him as long as documentation of the marriage is provided with passports. He has tried to apply two times, they haven't refused. They said my son needed 6 months bank statements but he doesn't have that. For the type of visa, which is "Accompanying Spouse to Ireland", it does not require 6 months bank statements. His time is running out before he has to leave his present circumstances. Please advise. PS I should make you aware that he and his wife are in France at the moment.
What about my son sending his brother's bank statements to the visa office and saying that he is paying his brother's room and board?
