Re: Registered in Gemeinde. How long to get physical permit!!

chances are she's not going to have the permit in hand before then as it seems to take at least 2 weeks right now - took 2 months for ours but that was over December when it seems no one did much with issuing permits.

I don't know how it works with having the family reunification visa already stamped in there (is there a date on it for when it expires??) but you could just call the migrationsamt (they speak english) and ask them if she requires a reentry visa. We had to do that to go home to Canada in November, and it's an easy process - you just have to go down in person with your passport and as long as her information is in the system and shows the process is active, you pay a few francs and they fill a page of her passport and she is able to come back into the country without having the actual permit card in hand.
