Re: Dependent Visa for Non European citizen

You have two options. Get married (simplest in terms of a permit) or he applies for a Concubine permit for you. That means he agrees to be financially responsible for you for 5 years, even if the relationship doesn't work out.

Not all cantons offer this type of permit. A quick google search shows that Aargau mentions Konkubinat in several places on the website, so they might offer it. Your boyfriend will have to do some homework.

1. If you're married, yes you would have the right to work. If on a concubine permit, I think it depends on canton.

2. The general figure I see posted here is 100 CHF per day, so yes 30,000+ sounds about right.

3. Yes with a marriage dependent permit, because then an employer would not need to prove they could not find a Swiss or EU to to the job.

4. It takes as long as it takes. Often 12 weeks is common if all the paperwork is in order.

5. He'll write a letter explaining how you met, how often you visit each other, show pictures of vacations together, etc.

Important note: In Switzerland, a visa is only used for entry into the country. If you apply as a concubine or spouse, you would apply for a D-visa. Once you enter the country, you register as a resident and you receive the appropriate residence permit.
