Re: Marriage in Switzerland- Japanese Citizen and Swiss Citizen

Here's a snip of a quote from Medea from another thread. It sounds like the consulate isn't much help because you need to work with the cantonal authorities.

My first thought is that the student permit would be approved quickly, whereas a permit for marriage might take more time due to all the documentation they'd want, some of which might need to be translated.

Contact the Canton of Geneva as soon as possible:

It's the cantonal authorities he needs to talk to.

As far as I know this is still the case:

"Nationals of the following states do not require a visa to enter Switzerland under any circumstances: Brunei, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore.

However, the competent Swiss authority will issue a prior authorisation of a residence permit in the following cases:

a) for a stay of more than 90 days, or

b) a stay involving gainful employment:
lasting more than eight days, or
from the first day of work in the primary or auxiliary construction sectors, the hospitality sector, industrial or private cleaning services, surveillance and security services, itinerant sales and services or erotic services.

This prior authorisation of a residence permit is issued directly to the foreign national, or to a third party (employer), by the cantonal migration authority. The Swiss diplomatic or consular mission is not involved in this procedure."
