Re: non EU, Early C permit, Canton Approval, Time for Bern approval ?

Hi Mavericks,

Thanks for replying. As luck would have it, I actually received my C permit last Friday. I was so taken aback by how quickly the application got through the federal authorities! Strangely, however, the C permits for the rest of my family haven't come through yet - I am hoping that it's just a case of the permits having been mailed to us separately.

Just to summarise for anyone who finds this information useful: I waited six and a half months for the canton of Geneva to approve my early C permit request, and then another two and a half weeks for the federal authorities to give the green light and for my permit to arrive. Total processing time: 7 months. This is just for me; as I said above, the rest of my family are still waiting for their permits.
