Re: UK citizen, Family reunification - family members non-EU

It is pretty straightforward and you've almost got the sequence right. But the family reunification visas come first. So:

1. Contact the Swiss embassy/consulate where you're all based and get the Type D visa application form to fill in - it has a space on it where you say it's for family reunification. Fill it in and send all the supporting documents needed with the application.

2. Once visas are granted they'll be stamped in your family's passports and they'll have a set timeframe to move to Switzerland.

3. When you get here you all go to the commune/gemeinde (village/town/city hall) and apply for your permits there - taking along your employment contact and rental agreement. The permits will be issued in a few weeks' time.

Job done.

The only "solvency" that comes into it is that you must earn or have sufficient funds to support your dependents. With the employment contract that should be sufficient proof.
