Re: moving an elderly relative to Switzerland for part of the year - things to consid

Assuming you are not from Timbuktu you would get a 3 months EU visitor's visa with basic health insurance paid by your home country in any 12 month period. I think that would be a definite.

Maybe you can talk to your Gemeinde and find out if she can stay longer than 3 months on a compassionate visa?

As Odile says, the idea is nice, but is it what she wants? I know most older people like their lives to remain constant with no changes. Unless she is fluent in the local lingo she would be very isolated here.
