Re: Stay as tourist after L permit expires

View Post
Anyone have an answer to the OP's original question? Curious...
Hi! I'm back We have since received an official answer. We specifically asked if my Australian wife could stay for a week after her L permit expiry date. Here is the response:
L'épouse peut rester maximum 3 mois en séjour touristique en Suisse. Dès lors, elle garde son permis échu afin de prouver à l'aéroport qu'elle était en séjour légal en Suisse. Toutefois, elle devra quitter l'espace Schengen au maximum 3 mois après l'échéance de son autorisation.
Google translated:
The wife can stay for up to 3 months as a tourist in Switzerland. Therefore, she should keep her expired permit in order to prove to the airport that she was a legal resident in Switzerland. But she must leave the Schengen Area a maximum of 3 months after the expiry of her authorization.
This response came from the Valais authorities:
