Until now, the prerequisite for processing family reunification applications was that the household had at least one member aged no more than 9 years. With this recent update, the agency aims to enable the reunification of families with older children, significantly expanding the possibilities.

AIMA is committed to streamlining the process for those seeking to reunite with their families, thereby contributing to a more effective and comprehensive integration. Prospective applicants should pay close attention to the specific requirements and deadlines established by the Agency for Integration, Migrations, and Asylum, ensuring a successful participation in this extended family reunification process.

For any inquiries or the need for additional assistance, it is recommended to seek guidance from a specialized professional to ensure that the process is conducted appropriately and efficiently.
