Re: EU national with B permit -- Non-eu spouse needs visa?

For 1 not really sure. I think the average is 6-8 weeks but it can depend on whether they need extra paperwork. The embassy will be able to give you a better idea of that.

For 2, it shouldn't be a problem, the visa application should get matched up with your husband's permit along the way. You can always send them the info once he/you know it as well.
Hi Medea Fleecestealer,

I have been reading some threads from people in a similar situation and I am now very worried... maybe you can tell me if you think my wife has good chances of getting the visa D:

-- I am Italian and will be doing my PhD at the University of Geneva. My wife is non-EU (Argentina). My salary will be 46250 before taxes. In the B permit, we mentioned that we will stay at my director's place (as we were instructed by him), who has a big house in the city.
-- My wife doesn't have A1 french level yet (currently studying) but she enrolled in a course in Geneva in August. If we don't get the visa soon, she will have to attend this course as a tourist.
-- We live together in Argentina and have been married just for a few months. She studies academic music, and her plan is applying to the Conservatory of Geneva. We are both 25 years old. My family is in a very good financial situation (they will help us if we can't manage with my salary), but I don't know if I should include this somehow in the visa application.

Do you think we have good chances of getting her visa D? What can we do to improve the chances?

Thank you very much!
