I am an Indian citizen. My husband is admitted as a Masters student at TUM and I intend to join him there.
When I contacted the Bangalore consulate, they flatly refused saying 'You can not travel as a dependent if your husband is a Masters student.' When I contacted the Mumbai consulate, they said 'Of course you can travel with your husband. You just need to show funds in your bank account.' - Two contradictory views.
On their website there is no clear mention of whether such applications are even accepted. However, for the 'family reunion visa' they mention a list of documents, among them a 'Certificate of residence (“Meldebescheinigung”) of the spouse living in Germany'.
Does anyone have any additional information about dependent visas for spouses of Masters students?
