Hi thank you for your question. Please remember to RATE my answer OK SERVICE, GOOD SERVICE OR EXCELLENT SERVICE so I can get credited for my time.
There may be a misconception here on your part. You are not an EEA national you are a British citizen and therefore a schengen visa will require your parents to submit more documentation.
The fact is that your parents will only be able to take advantage of your EU status if you lived outside of the UK. That is why a schengen visa can not be used to enter the UK only the rest of Europe. I therefore do not believe that you will be able to use your status to assist your parents application. In addition although you are a British citizen, the only way you can exercise this right is by having the passport, therefore until you have actually obtained a passport you are unable to exercise this right.
I hope this answers your question, if so kindly rate my answer positively. Kind regards
thank you for the answer.
Please could you clarify. The statement on the visa application states that family members of the EU, EEA or CH citizens do not need to fill in certain boxes.
1. To my knowledge UK is still part of the EU. Hence, we can read that family member of the EU citizens do not fill in certain boxes.
I don't see any misconcept here...
2. Providing I obtain passport (it is a matter of a few weeks), I can prove that I am a British, i.e. EU citizen.
Hence, the rule becomes appicalbe. Is there a misconsept?
3. Family members (my parents) of EU citizen (me) do live outside EU, i.e. Russia. I (British citizen) live in EU/UK.
is there a misconcept?
4. Question. Do my parents satisfy criteria OF "family members -dependent ascendant"? What documents would prove it?
FYI: I am providing a sponsorship to all their trips abroad (outside Russia).
it is a standard Schengen visa application form which is the same for all 27 Schengen countries
