The petitioner calls for Regulation (EC) No 539/2001 to be amended so that the relatives of EU citizens covered by Directive 2004/38/EC who are nationals of third countries can receive exemption from visa requirements, provided that they ensure or demonstrate that their stay in the Member State is for a maximum of three months. The petitioner complains about the treatment of her father at the Spanish Consulate-General in Havana, Cuba, when he requested a visa to visit her as the family member of an EU citizen.
