I am and my husband is non-EU citizen. I work in Germany with the EU Blue Card as an IT Specialist since April 2019 and then 7 months later I got married (It means; first I started to work with Blue Card and then I got married). My husband applied for EU Blue Card Family Reunification but the officer refused the application (processing is delayed). She did not accept my husband's application as a Blue Card Family Reunification visa claiming that we were married after I received the Blue Card. She said that our family reunification visa process will be processed like an ordinary work permit, not an EU Blue Card. The officer gave us a 3-month additional time, stating that the application process would only be re-processed if my husband brought a German certificate at the A1 level and she held back the visa application process.
- We would like to know if the officer's visa application was correct or incorrect.
- Do we need to get a German A1 certificate in our case?
- If this application was incorrect, do we have any chance to fix it at the German Consulate?
