I have an EU Blue Card with my wife and two children (they are here due to family reunion) based in Munich. I have read that EU Blue card is valid for one year if you stay in a non EU country. If you stay longer than 1 year, then it is cancelled.

My questions; - Is that 1 year time in total for the whole EU Blue Card validity period? For example my wife and children visit their relatives frequently and stay for 3-4 months at each visit. Should i sum all time periods they were out of Germany and check if total time sums up to 1 year or is it 1 year for each visit and nothing to be worried about?

  • As a EU Blue Card holder, does this rule only apply to me? Are my wife and children allowed stay for any period in a non EU country? Or is it valid for family members also?
