I am studying in Germany and will be married in December this year. My girlfriend currently works in Amazon Luxembourg and obtained a Blue Card. Me and my girlfriend are both non-eu citizens. After we marry, we want to live together in Luxembourg but I don’t know if that’s possible at all. So my questions are :
1) Can I obtain a residence permit in Luxembourg by family reunification and then continue to study in Germany ?
2) Normally, afaik, one can apply for permanent residence permit in Luxembourg after residing in the country for 5 years. Does this also apply to me, or do I have to wait longer since I will be a student during that period of time ? ( Masters + PhD in Germany)
Thank you for your time.
We were thinking of getting married in Turkey (therefore don’t have any kind of documents at the moment), but we might also consider the Turkish embassy in Luxembourg if it makes things easier. Right now I am a student at Saarland university and registered in Saarland, I am planning to commute from Luxembourg to Saarland most of the weekdays, once I get married.11baris_esmer
Please incorporate the answers into the original question.
Since you want to create your main residence in Luxemburg, the family reunification seems to be the best option.
If the third-country national has a valid residence permit for
family members of an EU citizenor a valid residence permit issued by another EU Member State, a visa is not required. The third-country national must nonetheless have a temporary authorisation to stay.
Inform the local Foreigners Office, that issued your residence permit, of your intention of
Since, I assume, your present residence permit is for studying
Not knowing which state you are studying in Germany makes it impossible to look up the corresponding rules which can differ in details from state to state.
The pdf Ihr Kontakt zur Ausländerbehörde in Saarbrücken lists contact numbers.
If you live in Luxemburg and study in Germany you will be a Grenzgänger
There seems to be a department for that:
I suggest calling them to ask them about this situation and make an appointment.
The final result will probably be that you will have 2 main residences
As long as both countries know beforehand what is going on, there should be no problem.
Assume that Luxembourg will be asking Germany for information about you. So informing Germany beforehand is a good idea.
How this will effect the time for eligibility for a Luxembourg permanent residence permit is a good question and difficult (if not impossible) to answer here.
