Re: Work permit visa and dependent visa

I have received the confirmation from the authorities regarding my visa (Ermachtigung Zur Visumerteilung) and have been asked to go to the local consulate in Mumbai to collect my D-visa. I will be traveling to Zurich in the last week of April to start my PhD at ETH Zurich.

However, my wife has been asked to appear in person at the consulate with the original marriage certificate and application for D-visa. Now, the people at the consulate say it might take up to 12 weeks for my wife's visa.

the complication is that my wife has to travel to London for work on may 20th and will be in london for a month.

My question is, if i request for the approval to be sent to the swiss embassy in london, can she get her passport stamped in London itself? or does she have to travel to India and then get her passport stamped?

to paraphrase, can she apply for the visa from mumbai, India after producing all the original documents and then collect the visa from London once the approval comes through?

She will be in the UK on a academic visitor visa and ideally her work does not require her to come back to India after the trip.
