Size of the apartment - family reunion permit refused

Hi,


Today I received the letter from Immigration office - they refused my family reunion permit for my wife and my son (2 years old) due to the size of the apartment. My current one is 2.5 room and they request that minimun 3.5 is required. My landloard agreed to invite my wife and my son to live in this apartment.


Any one can help to fight back to immigration office. They still accept agrument/feedback before the final refuse.


Thanks very much.

Boager

I kind of get where the immigration office is coming from. 2.5 rooms is a very small area to live in unless the rooms are very large. Are you planning on moving to a 3.5 room flat?

The garden is nice but for the immigration authorities that does not count as they look at space/bedrooms. And 2,5 is probably one bedroom?

Re: Size of the apartment - family reunion permit refused

A one bedroom apartment is not "big" enough for a couple with a child. You need one bedroom for you and your wife and a separate bedroom for your child. You may be able to argue the baby is still little and that you will move once they are here an settled a bit.

The m2 of the apartment is a lesser issue. A letter from teh landlord wouldn't hurt.

Did the letter say you have 30 days to appeal?

Thanks very much for your input. I got 18 days to appeal. I plan to ask a German speaker to give a call to the immigration office.

Yes it is. You need two bedrooms.

I wouldn't "appeal"... I'd get in touch with them, say you see their point and could they please put your application on hold whilst you move to a 3.5 room. Appeal and you'll lose.
