relocation to Germany through university of EU directive

Post by Benzino78 » Mon Jul 29, 2019 1:29 am

Hi everyone! Seeking advice here.
I am a British citizen who is trying to assist my brother to relocate to Germany. He is married with 3 children. Will it be better for me to :
1 . Relocate to Germany first and then invoke the EU directive?
2. Relocate to Germany, get university admission for my brother and then invoke the EU directive? I see getting his family to Germany incredibly difficulty as a student. Please advise.

Kind regards,
Ben

Hello

EU Directive has nothing to do with studies. So studies or not, that's not relevant really.

That Directive is very difficult to invoke to entire families. You can invoke it for your partner and your kids. In some remote cases, it may work for a single adult where there is a history and circumstances that justify it. But I have never seen it successfully working for an entire relative his own family.

@Zerubbabel The OP has posted various scenarios for bringing his brother, sister-in-law and 3 children into three different EU countries, including France where his Nigerian mother is currently stuck without any legal residence. :!:

Oh! Thank you for the heads up. I think I responded to a few posts without realizing they are from the same person.
