applying for a b-permit

i'm having a helluva time finding info online or getting someone at the embassy to help me so i'm hoping someone out there knows!

i recently married a swiss national and want to apply for my residence permit. first, as a US citizen, do i also need a visa or do i only need the permit? or are they one and the same?

second, do you apply for the permit at an embassy then physically pick it up from the canton office? does this permit automatically give you the right to work as well? and any idea on the costs?

i'm trying to sort this out before making the 45 minute journey to the embassy just to be told i didn't have to go or don't have the right info.

cheers!

Re: applying for a b-permit

Hi msmaddymax,
i just applied B permit. the entry visa and settled permit are different things. entry visa should be granted by embassy of switzerland in u.s. settled permit should be granted by immigration office in switzerland. visa should be applied by yourself. and permit B should be applied by your boss.
the application procedure of two documents are closely related which means if someone can help you to push immigration office in switzerland for your permit then the procedure of visa application can also be accelarated.
you know, the switzerland embassy in my homeland will only handle 3 month short visit visa. for your situation, more than 1 year stay will be send back to switzerland to subscribe as "return-subscribtion". this will take 2 months which i was told by an embassy assistant.

Your question was answered there.

Also about the visa, you will be issued a visa to enter the country by the embassy.

thanks for that.

so you apply at the embassy but you only receive the actual permit when you settle in CH.

well, then, i will go to the embassy tomorrow.
