Part time expat intro...

Hello all...

I am living in Switzerland about 6 months of the year...including time that is spent traveling around Europe. My fiancÚ has a place here in beautiful Crans-Montana. My time here is about 4 months in the summers (to escape the Texas heat) and two months in the winters.

I look forward to some new acquaintances...

And ... you do know you're only allowed to be here for up to 90 days at a time of course. And that period includes any time spent in the Schengen area countries too. After that you have to leave Switzerland/Schengen area for 90 days before you can return again. If you overstay you risk a fine, a record on your file making it more difficult to get back into Switzerland/Schengen again and possibly being banned from entering Switzerland/Schengen for a year or more.

Well...I guess I've miscalculated my dates 😱...or maybe that's why the cute officer at immigrations gave me an odd look, and a smilesmile 😏 before letting me pass...anyway, we keep it workable without issue...

You were lucky on that!

I once stayed up to the exact max number of days, and the immigration officer took out a calendar and recalculated twice in front of me with a pencil.

Re: Part time expat intro...

Wait until you go to leave. Then the shit'll hit the fan. Still, if you don't care about having to pay a fine or possibly being banned from seeing said fiancÚ here for a year or more carry on with your original travel arrangements. Personally, I'd change them to avoid the risk.

And remember the 90 days includes the day you arrive and the day you leave so no staying for 90 days and leaving on the 91st, that puts you over your limit.

Use the calculator to work out when you'll go over.

Given the heatwave we've just had I think you may have been better off staying in Texas. At least you have air-con there. This from an Okie born Brit btw.

Thank you to all for your information. I'm not exactly new to Switzerland or Europe... Only this forum. Our stays are planned judiciously without over staying our welcome.
