Employment with a Dependent Visa

A friend of mine has a Type-B visa and is employed in Zurich. His wife plans to join him as a dependent who is well qualified and a senior professional. Can a dependent seek an employment in CH ? If so, what should she choose in her visa application form (i.e. Dependent / Visitor or Family Reunion). Thoughts?

Cheers!
Neo

Re: Employment with a Dependent Visa

In Switzerland, a visa is a stamp in your passport that allows you to enter the country. A permit is what you need to live and work here.

The wife will need both. First, she should apply for a D-visa, which is for long-term entry to the country (i.e. not a tourist). The reason for the visa and the permit is family reunification.

Usually with spousal B-permits they have the same working rights. Sometimes the permit is issued without work listed and then when the spouse finds a job he/she goes back to the municipality and the work is added to the permit. It can vary a little from canton to canton.
