Re: Size of the apartment - family reunion permit refused

Maybe the refusal from immigration office is not grounded, as in the "Directives et commentaires Domaine des étrangers (Directives LEtr)" (the by-law issued by federal office of immigration to explain the federal law on foreigners), for family reunification, minimum number of pieces of appartement = number of person - 1. So theoretically they cannot refuse your case by this reason as soon as the appartement has more than 2 pieces (3-1).

(article 6.1.4).

Giving a call to immigration office first is a good choice. You can explain why for you the appartment is big enough. If you do not speak the language, try asking your landlord?
