1.I would like to ask if  my husband can apply for Schengen visa to come to visit me and go back? Is there any risk to my residence permit?
2. If my husband get study visa to Europe or working visa, is there any risk to my residence status .
I live in Germany under subsidiary protection and our family reunification application was rejected recently and I'm worrying to spend more time without seeing  my partner. Even if he can visit and go back, it's ok.

Please advise

Dear @Malcolm,

Welcome to the Wefugees Community and thank you for reaching out to us again.

I am sorry to hear that the visa was rejected and hope you can find an alternative way to be together again. What was the reason for the rejection? Did you get married after you left your country of origin? Were you supported by a lawyer in this matter?

If your husband applies for a Schengen visa (to visit) or a national visa (to study or work), there should not be a consequence for your own residence permit. I am afraid that it will not be easy for him to obtain the short-term visa after the rejection of the family unification visa though. The embassy might expect him to look for another way to stay in Germany. He will also be required to prove sufficient financial security or someone in Germany needs to provide a declaration of commitment. "Handbook Germany" is giving more information on this topic here.

Once again, I really cross my fingers for you and your family and don't hesitate to get back to us.

All the best,
