Hello,I am a british citizen and have just moved to Dresden. I am working for a large German engineering company.My problem is that my Fiencee is Russian, we intend to marry within the next few months but can not do so at this time as my final divorce documentation is not ready. Is there a way that my fiancee can come to Germany, not to work but just to be with me.ThanksNigel Betterton
State/Country relating to question: Germany
Nothing so far , you are my first contact regarding this subject
Dear Customer,thank you for using Just Answer.Your fiancèe has to have a Schengen Visa and health insurance for Germany.You have to invite her to Germany by writing to the German Embassy in Russia and assure them that she is just visiting.This is the so- called Verpflichtungserklärung.They need your net income for that and a copy of your passport.You also have to give informations about your visitor like name, address, passport number.You get the Verpflichtungserklärung from the Ausländeramt.I hope I was able to help.If so please accept my answer.Thank youBest Claudia Marie Schiesslattorney-at-law
This visa is only valid for a limited period and the German embassy is very strict and often only issues visas for a short period! She also has to return to Russia to get this visa and as her home is in the St Petersburg region she must visit the consulate there. I was hoping that there might be another solution where she could stay with me as an unmarried partner
Relist: Other.I already knew about this and it is not a solution
Dear Customer,you wrote already tried: NothingUnfortunately if you are not married the visiting by Schengen Visa is the only possibility.
