Yes she her resident visa for England that lasts for 2 years, before she has her final exam, so will I have to get her another visa to travel to Spain ??
Solicitor: Thomas, Solicitor replied 6 years ago
Hi
Thanks for your reply.

Yes, she will have to apply for a visa in the usual way that Chinese citizens do I’m afraid. The fact that she is on a spouse visa having applied for settlement does not in itself change her citizenship and give her additional rights to be considered as British for the purpose of applying for visas for other countries.
If and when she naturalises as a UK citizen she will not require a visa to travel to Spain, or other EEA countries, because she will at that point acquire EEA treaty rights by virtue of her UK citizenship.
Sorry it could not be better news.
