Re: Non-EU/EU married couple - B permit based on Non-EU's Employment?

It seems strange but EU and CH billateral agreement on the Free Movement of Persons seems to have wrought a better deal for EUers than Swiss/non-EU couples. I have no doubt there will be pressure on the Swiss government to normalize that. Maybe. So, Brownie, start gathering Swiss/non-EU couples signature and take it to Bern to show them the inequality!
That is really so unfair! Where else would spouses of a country's citizen more disadvantaged than spouses of foreigners

I'm actually also affected because my husband has both Swiss and Italian (EU!!!! Thank heavens!!) passports - maybe I should ask the next time I renew my B-permit why I don't get a 5-year valid one, when my husband is EU citizen too.. - it is part of the Bilateral Agreement after all
