    Cool, thanks!
    Incidentally, I emailed the German Embassy and got this reply;

    Dear Mr.xxxx,

    thank you for your Email. In order to obtain your desired visa, your wife needs to present the following documents:

    - her passport with the UK family visit visa
    - the marriage certificate with a German translation
    - a copy of your passport
    - documents proving sufficient health insurance for the time being in Germany.

    Your wife can file an application for the visa personally at the embassy.

    Please find attached a document with certified translators.

    If you have further questions, feel free to contact the embassy.

    --
    Best regards

    I
    tried to add the pdf file they sent me of the approved German translators, but the file was too big

    If anyone needs it, I guess they'd send it to you too. I used the form on their website to email them and got a reply within 48 hours.

    My wife sent off her application for a schengen visa to the German Embassy in London at the weekend - there certainly wasn't any health insurance documentation included. Isn't it blatant common sense not to purchase this until after a visa is approved?!

    Best not get a refusal because of that...

    You won't. As your wife is resident in the UK, she qualifies for a European health card which permits her to receive treatment in another EEA country up to what she could expect to receive in the UK under the NHS.

    I guess so, but in our case, my wife not being resident in the UK and the German embassy requiring that her UK visit visa be in her passport before they will issue the Schengen visa, we will have purchased travel insurance for her trip already. In your case, as pointed out, your wife is already insured by way of being a UK resident.

    Also, as they don't ask for any supporting documents, it looks to me as if the Schengen is pretty much a 'given' once the UK visit visa has been granted, so not much of a risk regarding insurance anyway

    Wow, my wife phoned me at work just mements ago, pleased as punch, to let me know schengen visa was delivered today - what service! Very pleased, but wanting to get home and check all the details are correct.

    I did write a coverning letter requesting they process the visa as a metter of priority (thanks for the tip Khun IanB). A big thanks to the advice offered from all within this thread, muchly appreciated, time to book flights

    p.s. This is my first experience visiting the Schengen area with a Thai national. As my Thai wife is resident in the UK, would we both be able to purchase the same/similar travel insurance from a UK insurance company (i.e. 'Insure & Go'), or being a Thai passport holder would she be required to get a different form of cover from elsewhere?

    Any help would be fandabidozee, cheers

    I purchased an annual multi-trip family/couple insurance policy for my wife and I just last month, Gavva, from BUPA. Have purchased the same policy previously for myself.

    The qualifying definition is 'The country in which you live and have lived for at least six of the last 12 months. All trips must start and end from your country of residence within the insurance period.'

    Is it possible to apply in person at the German Embassy in London ? Would this be any quicker ?

    prikphet, you can apply in person at the German Embassy, but you would be better off completing the forms and contacting the Embassy in Advance for an appointment. Remember 2 key facts for an application for a schengen visa when it is a spouse of UK(EU) Citizen...
    1) The Schengen Visa application should be free
    2) The Schengen Visa application should be expidited
    and the 3rd hidden key fact is that the first 2 are ignored unless you stress them and stand your ground ;-)

    Good Luck :-)

    our Schengen earlier this year took 3 days tops by post. Tipical Germans very efficient. To go to London parking congestion charge proberbly lunch, much cheaper by post. Just a point they do want originals not copies.
    Also flew with Ryanair £105 for 2 to Bremen
    Best of luck
