You can look forward to spending your time in Germany with your partner and children. Although there are some conditions attached to family reunification, as an international skilled worker, you are sure to fulfil them.
Are you an EU citizen living and working in Germany and would you like to bring your spouse to Germany? As an EU citizen, you are entitled to freedom of movement, and your spouse and children can live and work in Germany. Whether your family members need a special temporary residence permit depends on their nationality.
Spouses who are EU (European Union) or EEA (European Economic Area) citizens
If your spouse is an EU or EEA national, they can join you in Germany very easily and live and work here without restrictions. You do not need to apply for a special residence permit.
Spouses who are third-country nationals
If you are a citizen of a member state of the EU or EEA but your spouse is not, they must apply for a visa for spouses joining their partners. If your spouse holds a residence permit for another EU state, they do not need a visa to enter Germany (Section 2 (4) of the freedom of movement Act/EU [FreizügG/EU]).
