I wrote to them last week.No response

I think you should write to the embassy. Sometimes, the delay is mostly from the home office where your husband resides. Your hubby might have gotten a letter from the home office stating that they have gotten back to the consulate general in Lagos, but they are quite smart to also let you know that the decision of visa approval or rejection is not theirs to take so as to shift the blame.
in my opinion, if you decide to write to them which I think is the best thing to do, remember to state your file number, when you had the interview also stating that your hubby has done the needful by submitting all required documents.

Hi all, I'm just reading all comments regarding family reunion, and I'm a bit confused as to how to go about mine. Pls I'll appreciate anyone's response. I currently live and study in cyprus, and i just got married in Hungary to a hungarian citizen, but he lives and work in Germany. The home office in germany said that i have to go to my home country to apply for a resident permit. Do I have to come back to Nigeria to apply for family reunion visa since he is an European? The Hungarian Immigration said I can only get resident permit if my husband and I live in hungary. Pls advice.. thanks.

Re: General German Work And Family Re-union Visa Enquiries by Sam8850: 6:57pm On Jan 16
Well the only way you can apply for the family reunion visa from another country is if you have a resident permit in that country. Since you're in Cyprus for Study it means you do not have a resident permit in Cyprus (Correct me if I'm wrong here) nor in Hungary where you had your wedding ceremony, hence its sad to say but you'd have to return back to Naija to start the process and complete the verification.

Your spouse at the moment can only support with filling your aplication in Germany and submitting the required documents in the home office.

That being said, resident permit is the key word here and I dunno how long it takes and the requirements to get that in Cyprus or Hungary, hence, Naija is your only fast and simple way to join your spouse in Germany.

This is so complicated sha.

If you can get a resident permit in Hungary (let your husband file for you) then apply for Germany spouse reunion as a Hungarian resident. The other part is to go to Nigeria and apply.

First book a date for spouse renewal visa and travel to Nigeria at least a day before your interview. Do the interview and wait for the embassy decision.

Kinda complicated but I don't know what you can do other than what the German Embassy already said.


Don't take my advice as a legal advice oh.
Re: General German Work And Family Re-union Visa Enquiries by Justlanded: 8:41pm On Jan 16
Thanks @Sam.. yes I do have resident permit in cyprus.. but I checked the immigration website in hungary, and it says after marriage you can apply for a resident permit, hopefully that works or I apply from cyprus if its possible from here. Thanks once again for your quick response.

Is there anyone that has applied for any tech related jobs or want to apply in Germany and needs advice. Please post here and I'll try to respond as soon as possible.


I keep getting mails from recruiters everyday about open offers and tho most of them are tech jobs that require at least four years experience.

Hello, good day.

How's the job market for Java and Android developers over there in Berlin.

I am in school already so I am just making enquiries as I am building my portfolio and making my projects open source.

Re: General German Work And Family Re-union Visa Enquiries by temitayoolu(m): 11:07am On Jan 17
Depends on how you package your resume and your LinkedIn profile. God knows I get around 4 linkedin messages every week looking for people with my particular IT skills.


Do you have good Linux skills ? Windows or Cloud Computing ?

You might not get IT support but maybe a systems engineer job. Check Stack Overflow and xing.com

I agree with you.Since her hubby has a residence permit in Germany or an EU card holder,it shouldnt be a big deal for her but they will definitely require her marriage certificate as well.I wish you the best

Thanks for your prompt response.

I have windows /cloud computing skills. I just know how to use linux but not on the professional level. Though am improving myself in that area.

I can perform the function of a system engineer perfectly as i have hands on experience/work experience on that managing different IT infrastructures.
Re: General German Work And Family Re-union Visa Enquiries by temitayoolu(m): 12:07pm On Jan 17
If you know Aws very well and have a certification you'd be hot cake here oh.

Try to learn Linux terminal and bash then your chances would increase very well

I have some International IT certs and it helps.

Problem is we don't all live in Lagos. Getting a German language school even in Abuja was like looking for a needle. I do think they should decentralise the Language bit of the institute like what the British Council does

I know of a Russian who knows how to speak German and English whose open to relocating to Nigeria, do you mean if she comes to Nigeria (Abuja) and starts a language school here that she would do well
Re: General German Work And Family Re-union Visa Enquiries by temitayoolu(m): 1:07pm On Jan 17
The embassy already knows which institution are allowed conduct language testing. She needs to get certified by the embassy I believe. Otherwise she teaches but the students still go to goethe institute for their exam.

What about Microsoft Azure, is that one not sellable over there?

Thanks
Re: General German Work And Family Re-union Visa Enquiries by temitayoolu(m): 1:28pm On Jan 17
World wide Azure is not as big as aws. Don't limit yourself to Azure. I've done Azure aws and gcloud before. Aws is the biggest.

Man, I have a job already in Berlin. Resumption date is supposed to be on the 15th. Still no visa appointment.

This is crazy. I have the Federal Government agency thing and my signed work contract. Everything, Just an appointment.

It's crazy they say even slots in March are filled.

Stupid and dumb question, but Is there some kind of way to hasten the visa appointment process? I really have to leave the country before the end of the month or 2nd week of February latest. ( Booking a late flight is not an issue ).

Thanks a lot, baba!!! let's say I do these online courses ...will I be able to get a job in Nigeria

Yeah, first degree is key but it'd be possible to get a good paying job as a developer in Nigeria if you are good enough.

I don't have a university degree. Dropped out of Unilorin when I was 18 ( 300L, Midway 2nd semester ). No, I didn't have terrible grades. my CGPA was 3.2 ( might have been better if I attended classes and read weeks prior to exams rather than just photocopying colleagues notes a week or 2 before examinations)

I am 22 now, I have a 400K ( post taxes) job in Nigeria ( 300K when I was 21 ).

It just depends on skillsets and learning. I had a pretty popular tech blog ( not Samsung and Tecno phone crap but real tech programming stuff)
and my GitHub was good enough.

You will be rejected, Sure thing. But use that as fuel to doing more and improving.

While I make enough as a developer and I am comfortable than most people in the country will ever be, I am pressing forward to conquer the world plus Nigeria is starting to be seriously unsafe for young successful people.

I just booked my flight to Berlin in the later part of this month.

Lots of people wait for three months to get visa.

Takes a lot of time to get dates even if you have a million naira to pay it won't still get you dates.

Start searching everyday and night. Best of luck.

Lol baba, let me not calm down o. At this stage, it might be dependent on the company to wait or not.
Re: General German Work And Family Re-union Visa Enquiries by temitayoolu(m): 6:26pm On Jan 17
The company would wait if you explain to them very well. Do they have an agency here in Germany managing your process ?

Do they know the expectation ? Do they know it might take 3 - 6 months ? Make sure expectations are clear.

The problem isn't with writing the exams, you can register for the exam and take a flight to Lagos and max three days you're out. But expecting me to put my life on hope to stay in Lagos to learn the language is the headache.
