Document Checklist for Spouse Visa Germany

Spouse Visa in Germany

Germany has become one of the latest ideal destinations for immigrants from India and other Asian countries. The lucrative job opportunities offered by the German employer attracts lakhs of candidates every year to migrate to Germany under job seeker or employment visa. Staying in abroad, away from your family can be stressful at times especially for those who are married. Hence the Spouse visa Germany was initiated by German embassy which allows the spouse and children from India to visit their German spouse or a parent working in Germany.

The spouse visa Germany is often referred as a family reunion visa in which the spouse living in India can apply for a family reunion (spouse visa Germany) from the German consulate in India as per his/her jurisdiction. It takes approximately 2 to 3 months for the visa to be approved by the German embassy from the date of your visa interview.

The major advantage of Family reunion (spouse visa) or Spouse visa Germany over a regular Schengen visa (tourist visa for Germany) is the duration of your stay in Germany. The tourist visa is granted for a maximum time period of 3 months while the family reunion visa can be granted for more than a year as it comes under the German national visa category.

In order to apply for family reunion visa successfully, you need to make sure that you follow the German embassy spouse visa checklist properly. All the documents need to be prepared as per the checklist as any missing document can lead to visa rejection.
