family reunification related

Hi all. I'm a non-EU person working on a B permit. My family members just got their visa issuance approval to come join me.

I have a question, though. My husband will move here permanently in June, but he will visit here in April for about ten days. Since he won't be moving here then, he wouldn't be picking up his visa beforehand but entering as a tourist, which he is entitled to do with his passport without a visa. Would there be a problem with that? He would only be picking up the family reunion visa afterward because the purpose of the first trip is tourism, and actually registering on this first trip would not make sense (he'd exit the country before his permit were ready). I'm sorry if I'm not being clear, but my question is: is it fine for him to enter as a tourist and have his approval for a family reunion visa wait until he's back from this trip? Could this impact anything negatively?

Thank you for reading and any advice.

No visa requirement for tourism (90 days or less).
