Re: How to get married in Switzerland?

View Post
Get married in the US or other country.
This may cause extra trouble if you will need your residence permit to depend on your spouse's. Otherwise, yes, just get married elsewhere.

If money is not an issue, I would get a lawyer. Two of my friends (British and Egyptian citizens) got married in Egypt, that was approved by UK, and they had lots of trouble getting it recognized in Switzerland, so they contacted a lawyer and everything was resolved in a short period of time.

Also Pakistan-Swiss couple had to wait really long for residence permit. Swiss were asking for ridiculous things like photos from here previous marriage, got an investigator to check her schools and neighbours in Pakistan, etc.
