Hello! As far as I understand, it is now possible to do a short visit <90 days. But some couples planned to live together, e.g. the partner wanted to come to work or study, because for many couples this is the only sustainable solution. At least, this applies in our case. My partner (from Colombia) already was accepted by a German university as exchange student. So far, the university has not decided yet whether classes will be presential. Yet, this would be a prerequisit to apply for a regular student's visa. To me, it does not make any sense to deny partners the possibility to apply for a student's or work visa with the argument that entrance to the country is restricted now (which applies to non-partners), but at the same time let them enter for the purpose of a short-term visit (causing more travel activities which increase risk). Does anyone know anything with regard to a combination of the permission to reunite and application for work/student's visa?
Thanks a lot in advance for any hint you can give us!!
