Thank you again for the response above.. i have understood what you have written about the GMC and EC rights..
I have found some further information on the GMC website that could potentially allow my wife to be "exempt".. we are trying to exhaust all possibilities first before moving as a final result to the plab test..
I have found this link http://www.gmc-uk.org/ec_rights_factsheet.pdf_25396620.pdf .. There is a lot of wording in there to understand.. Will you be able to tell us if any points apply to us and wat documentation we will need..
These are all the same points that I looked at previously in relation to your case. It is still her nationality that counts. All exemptions apply to EEA nationals and their families. You are not considered to be an EEA national unless you are able to demonstrate that you have resided in another member state as a worker, self employed person, student or self sufficient retired person for at least 3 months. If you can demonstrate this then she can be counted as the spouse of an EEA citizen and so she may be able to forgo the PLAB test. Otherwise she is unfortunately going to have to take it as she does not fall into the exemptions.
I hope this answers you question in which case please Accept. If you require any further information, please ask.
Many thanks for the email above.. I have another few quick questions if you dont mind..
My wife has had to renew her visa residency in Germany for another year.. She has been told that she is now eligible to apply for a German passport and to fill in an application form for process..
If this is accepted, Do you know whether:
1. she has to submit her Egyptian passport
2. there will obviously be no issue with the GMC for registration but
how will this affect her to apply for a British passport as currently she has a spouse visa in the Egyptian passport.
Thanks in advance
