My wife (Chinese, currently staying in France on a student visa, titre de séjour) and I (German, living in Germany), after applying for a German visa for family reunification to live together in Germany, found ourselves in the following situation:
The estimated date on which her (family reunification) visa application will be completed by the German embassy is after the expiration date of her current titre de séjour. There is a period of 20-30 days during which she will not have a valid visa.
What can we do in this situation? Is there some provisional visa she can apply for in this case?
