Further to your question, you would require a family permit to travel to the UK.

Has an application been made to the Home office?

Kind regards

It seems like an application has been made for a family permit, however she cannonly travel to the UK once it has been granted.

Can you confirm what country the family permit application was made from?

Kind regards
