Dear @Malcolm, dear Jeannette,
Thank you for your question. First of all, I would highly recommend you not to publish any private data (as names, contact details etc.) here. It is a public platform and in case you post data here, we are not able to protect them. You can still edit your text above and remove those details! Regarding your question: Yes, unfortunately, people with subsidiary protection and who married after leaving the country of origin in the first place are granted the family reunification visa only in exceptional cases. However, as your spouse graduated in the Netherlands - is he not able to get a working visa here? Did he try already?
I will link two of our experts here. Dear @mbeon-fardeen or @mbeon-Christine, do you have more ideas how the couple can reunite in Germany?
All the best,
