Your non-EU spouse, (grand)children or (grand)parents do not need to get a visa from the country they are travelling to if:

Can you confirm you are approved in UK..
I would like to act 100% on your legal advice..and not wait till Thursday. I am suposed to leave on Saturday.
We have now been told by Vias agency that travelling on a Greek resident permit Ling can travel alone in the schengen area ..!!
We are still going to our appointment on Thursday ..so i will vote you after.
At this very moment it looks like you were not correct..but I want it from the horse mouth so to speak. Very very confusing..!!
If you are a non-EU national wishing to visit or travel within the EU, you will need a passport:
and possibly a visa. Apply for a visa from the consulate or embassy of the country you are visiting. If your visa is from a "Schengen area" country, it automatically allows you to travel to the other Schengen countries as well. If you have a valid residence permit from one of those Schengen countries, it is equivalent to a visa.
