Wife registering in Geneva, how?

Hi,

Got a question which I am sure one of your clever people can answer. I've lived in Geneva for the past two years. My wife will be moving over soon as she has been living in Germany until now.

Question is I am on the house contract. If she needs to register what do I need to do to ensure that she gets registered with no issues? I have a B permit however am concerned given that she is not on the house contract they won't let her register?

Any advise would be nice :-)

Thank you,
M

Re: Wife registering in Geneva, how?

Don't think it matters, she just needs to show that she will be living there with you. You have a rental contract and she'll be living with you as your dependent. You don't think kids' names need to be on the contract to be able to register do you? No, so neither does your wife.

What you do need to make sure of is that you have up to date copies of her birth certificate and your marriage certificate - by up to date I mean less than 6 months old. This seems to be a requirement with many of the cantons, but check with Geneva's migration office or your commune admin office if they need recent ones or not.

This also gives info:

Re: Wife registering in Geneva, how?

They'll probably ask if you have the means to support her ( if she's not working) or her job contract if she is. It makes no difference whether she is named on the rental contract.
I guess she'll come as family reunification. Is she EU national?

Thanks for the info, appreciated. She is a EU national.

Seems like there will be no complications. Thanks again
