Help On Family Reunification Visa For Spain by toskybrown(f): 10:42pm On Jan 09, 2013
Hello NL, I am married to a finnish who has been residing in spain for a very long time.We got married last june, 2012.we went to the spanish embassy to. Know if I could leave with him and what documents we had to present to the spanish embassy in lagos.
Unfortunately we could not gather enough information from the lady we met at the reception and we asked if the embassy had a website were we could gather the information we needed but it turned out that they didn't have one.we were able to get more information from the security at the gate for some cash.
We were told to get all our documents certified at the ministry of foreign affairs in abuja and translate all the documents to spanish which should be done by a cerified translator in spain.
TO cut the story short the spanish embassy has been so unreliable,I have been sent back several times when ever I go there to submit my documents for legalization just because I have one document missing or the other.
This has been their fault right from day one because they have been unable to provide the neccessary information I needed.I was finally able to submit my documents on the 5th of october, 2012 and I was told to come back on the 5th of december,2012 I was there and I was told to come back again on the 20th of december that my documents were not ready.I was there again and they said I still need to give them a document then after that my papers wld be legalized.
I have given them the document they need and they said i would be called.This has been rather fustrating for my husband and I.He had written to the spanish embassy several times and even got a lawyer who said we shouldn't be going through this stress and that since am married to an EU citizen my visa should be granted to be me immediately so I can come to spain to process my resident permit.
NL I would want to know if this is actually true because we have been apart for a long time.I would want to hear from those would have gone through this experience and also appeciate opinions and suggestions too.Thank you all.

well you almost get to your Peak, Well my own advise is that since Spain Embassy is not reliable why can't you take your documents from them (if possible) then let your husband Take it to Spain for Legization.
Re: Help On Family Reunification Visa For Spain by toskybrown(f): 11:06pm On Jan 09, 2013
@ Naija lastborn I don't think its possible because all documents have to be legalized first by the embassy in the the home country of the applicant who is willing to join his or her spouse@
Re: Help On Family Reunification Visa For Spain by Naijalastborn(m): 11:12pm On Jan 09, 2013
Your own now, if you get the Documents legallised then you are good to go, for my own I've to Take Exam oo @ the embassy in which it will be conduct in Foreign Language and its almost for someone to pass it orelse no show for that person

@kennybuda. I can't apply from finland because my husband resides in spain.ONe can only apply from the member state where the spouse u are planning to join resides.THe only thing I could do was legalize my marriage first with the finnish embassy in abuja which was one of the periqusite of the spanish embassy.
