Dependent visa approval time for L permit holders

Am quite sure this question has been raised a few times, but the threads are quite old and the rules keep changing?

I would just like to know how much time does it normally take for Dependent visa processing for L permit holders (in Zurich canton).

Do share your experience.

Re: Dependent visa approval time for L permit holders

Hi,

It Depends, But as I know It use to take more than 8 weeks before 1 year or so. But If all documents are in order and once it is submitted, It should not take more than 4 weeks.

Re: Dependent visa approval time for L permit holders

Finally submitted the documents yesterday (hey the wedding was a couple of weeks ago).
Now we wait, with christmas just round the corner, maybe it would take longer.

Fingers crossed

Re: Dependent visa approval time for L permit holders

Nice
I have reached a weird state, the processing is being handled by my organization. Yesterday I visited the kreisburo but they directed me to Migrationsamt.
I did drop a mail to them and they replied they haven't recieved anything, while VFS back home (which handles parts of visa processing for the embassy) mentioned it has been sent to Switzerland.
Should I visit Migrationsamt personally and check with them, as i am getting confusing replies!

Re: Dependent visa approval time for L permit holders

My final update, approval came in today.
It took longer due to a few goof ups from my agent's side. But am glad the wait is over now!

Total time it took was : 2.5 months
However, if one does everything correctly the total process should not take more than 6 weeks, right from applying in India to approval.

You got approval in March 2012 and she's still not here! I think you're going to be asking for a miracle for it to be extended again, but all you can do is ask. If they say no, you'll have to make a new application once she's able to travel again.

The only thing you can do is contact your cantonal authorities and ask for another extension. Not much we can do here on EF, except cross our fingers for you.
