NGOs call on EU to Clarify Definition of the Family Members/ Dependent Relatives Entitled to Family Reunification
20 NGOs have joined together to call on the European Commission and the EU Member States to “clarify the definition of the family members and of the dependent relatives entitled to family reunification, based on proportionality and non-discrimination. Currently, only married couples and their minor unmarried children are entitled to family reunification under the Directive. Guidance should address how Member States can include other family members and define dependency based on an individual assessment of family life.”
