Hello,

The EEA Family Permit application is for family members of EEA nationals (excluding the UK).

You need to apply for a Family Visit Visa and the application and documents required are all explained here:

I called Greece Embassy today and they considered me as EEA Family Member,

Why should i apply for family visit? my wife doesn't have any family in UK

also i want to know if there is any consideration for been married to British citizen when they review my application ?

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 2 years ago.
The UK and Greece have different immigration rules and as you are married to a British citizen, you come under UK immigration law, not EU law.

The fact that you are married to a British Citizen makes you eligible for a UK Family visit visa, this is the consideration given to you.

All the best
