I would like to know if it's possible for my boyfriend to come to marry me in Germany with a Schengen visa. He holds an Azerbaijani passport. It would be very helpful because right now I am pregnant and would like to get married as soon as possible.

I'm German and my boyfriend didn't make his visa yet but going to do it next week. I can't wait 3 month for him to reach Germany that why I'm thinking Schengen Visa is the fastest visa that he could give and me as a German I think maybe I can help him to get the visa to live with me in Germany

Go straight to the nearest Standesamt and ask them about the exact steps you need to do. You can't just get married - you need to fulfil all the German requirements to make the marriage legal, and also all the Azerbeijan legal requirements. You won't be able to do this in a few days; you will need all the right papers, you will need official translations, there may be things that need to be done in Azerbeijan (but may be done in a consulate in Germany).

Now the part you don't want to hear: There are plenty of people out there who want you as a means to provide a visa and nothing else. Of course that's not happening in your place, but don't provide loans, hand over your savings, be a loan guarantor and so on.

  • Are u telling me cuz u know about German or you are German citizen?
