If you have family members in Germany, you can apply for a residence permit for them to restore or maintain the family community. As a prerequisite, your relative must have a residence permit, have sufficient living space available, and must be able to secure the family’s living expenses.

The Goethe Institut offers intensive preparatory courses for the A1 language exam. You can use this certificate from the Goethe Institute for your family visa application. Read our website for more information and contact us for personal advice.
Effective integration in German society requires solid language skills as well as knowledge about the country and its people. To be successful in everyday life, it is also important to prepare for different customs and traditions. How do you interact with your neighbors? How do you approach your colleagues? How do you get your official paperwork done with confidence? Intercultural training helps you find your bearings and identify and avoid problems from the outset. We’ll be happy to advise you.
