If he's going without you he'd need a Schengen visa....I do know people who've been in your situation and driven from the UK over to Tunisia for example, without their spouses and they had no problems as long as they had their Schengen visa.
I'd give the French embassy a ring.

He can go wherever he wants as long as he obtains the appropriate visa.

Thanks Jane I thought that was just having a malteser moment!! He has (like most tunes!) family in France and the plan was to visit them and then drive down to Tunisia with his cousin tho think it might be more hassle than its worth as there is no French embassy in NI!!

Couldn't you contact the one in London and enquiry as to whether it can be done via post....surely must be able to do that.

Very expensive too. Unless hes taking lots of stuff over he's better off flying to France then onto Tunisia...

Didn't realise they needed biometrics for a schengan visa!! They've already got their biometrics done.

That's far too logical and straightforward!! For some reason they've all got it in their heads to do this at least once...lol

Damn I hope not, times have changed then since I got mine. I remember we needed bio for the UK visa for hubby....but we might be in europe this year so he'll need a schengen too.
