Thank you so much! So is it possible to apply the spouse visa at the same time when I apply for my visa? I have read some forums and it said it is not possible to bring your spouse for the first year of PhD study because you are not an assistant and technically not a working permit. We hope to go to Switzerland together as soon as possible.
No idea about that first year. Also, my experience is from 2013/2014. Things may have changed.

I guess the best you could do is ask the professor hiring you about other student that went through this process recently. You're not the only one in this situation. I can bet a 24 pack of beer that someone in the same department did the very same paperwork last year and is happy to help. So, ask your futures colleagues and get better info. Good luck
