The estimated date for giving birth is middle of Feb, and she must fly at least one month before that. So the stay in turkey must be at least 6 weeks, probably 8.
Assuming the EEA residence permit takes 3 months, then she would have no passport to travel during that time because I believe they want the passport for the application.
Therefore I think we have three options:
A) Arrive to UK in the next few weeks and immediately make the EEA residence application so that it can hopefully be processed by the beginning of January. Then fly to Turkey. Or;
B) Wait until after the birth of our baby in Turkey and then fly from Turkey to Norway and collect our recent post so that we have valid recent documents to show residence in Norway. Then we fly from Norway to UK and make the EEA family permit at the border.
C) Make an application (by post) in December, receive the Permit. Fly to Turkey, using most recent documents from Norway. Then we fly to UK.
After receiving the permit by post I assume we have 3 months before we need to arrive into the UK?
