If you’re already living in Germany and want your family to join you, you must contact the Federal Republic of Germany’s diplomatic mission in your home country.
Only core family members can join you. These include spouses, registered partners and minors.
HOW CAN MY FAMILY FOLLOW ME?
Spouses, life partners and children must apply for a residence permit for “family reunification purposes” in their home country. This is the responsibility of the diplomatic or consular mission of the Federal Republic of Germany located in the area of jurisdiction for your residence (see “Visa“). The visa is normally valid for 90 days.
