Dependants are “family reunification”! Even if unmarried.
No. There are family depends according Art. 3 FMOP agreement https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi...index.html#ta3 which are NOT subject to the permit B language requirements and there are all the other dependents. Such depends, if EU citizens, might have an independent residency right, and are also not NOT subject to any permit B language requirement, based on chapter V of the above treaty.

Quote:
There is no language requirement for unmarried children under 18 years of age, for spouses and unmarried children up to 18 years of age of Swiss citizens, nor for persons who may benefit from the provisions of the Agreement on the Free Movement of Persons (AFMP) and their family members (spouses and unmarried children up to the age of 21).

PS: All this language requirements have been in force since January 1st 2019. The only thing which has changed is that the list of accepted language certificates has been made shorter. So, what all is all the sudden interest and fuss?
