I've been doing my research on this forum however there is a lot of info. Just need a few things clarified if anyone can assist. Unfortunately the Swiss Embassy in Australia refuses to provide these answer over the phone & they keep referring me to their website. However I have found that the website is extremely vague and unhelpful to be honest.
On the application form it says that Visa D is only valid for initial entry & that within 14 days of arrival in Swiss I will need to go to the competent Migration Office.
1) Does anyone know where this competent Migration Office is in Zurich?
2) If anyone has done this process, what happens when you go in? Do they just officially put a visa in your passport or is it an interview?
3) When I go into the Migration Office are there any fees that I have to pay? or how long does this process take?
4) Also how & when will I know if my visa is accepted? Will I only be advised when I go into see the competent Migration Office is in Zurich? or will they inform me whilst I'm in Australia? (I would assume it would be whilst I'm in Aus??)
Im sorry everyone, I know these are very specific questions but I'm hopeful that there are other students out there that can provide assistance
Judging from the other posts on this forum it appears a lot of people are having issues with getting direct answers from Swiss embassy.
