Hi All,
My 16 month toddler is USA citizen.
She does no need visa to travel Germany upto 90 days stay.
She will accompnany me to Germany when i go there in June for Employement.

Is it okay if i dont apply her visa and directly apply her Residence permit when i go there?
Is it time consuming process and may have any issues or hurdles like residence address , my husband's consent letter(who lives in usa).
Pls advise exact process , documentation and complications if anybody has experienced similar case.
Thans in anticipation.

Hi Pooja,

It is okay to directly apply for your childs' residence permit in Germany without having a visa for her. I have helped several clients of mine in the exact same situation. 

It is very important that you bring the birth certificate and marriage certificate with you. Both need to be translated and apostilled. Also, you will need to set up health insurance for your child. 

I hope that helps,
