Re: Girlfriend moving over (UK)

Hi all, just wanted a couple of tips and up to date info if possible

First of all i'm from the uk working in Lausanne with a B permit, I've got a apartment for a year all in my own name.

My girlfriend, still in the UK is coming over 1st Nov to search for a job (Unless by some miracle she gets offered something while still in the UK) and will move into my apartment.

As far as I can understand she applys for a permit (L?) when she gets here which intitles her to stay for 3mths as a tourist and then after applies for a jobseekers permit to stay a further 3mths?

My questions,
*Will she have to get health insurance from day 1?
*Will I have to let my apartment and in turn insurances know that she is living with me from day one?
*What issues can I expect to face, will I have to sponser her or anything?
*If she has certain amount of money in the bank does this make anything easier with regards permits and me supporting her?

I've already spent an hour searching through threads but all seem either old or slightly differing circumstances.

So any corrections, answers or advice would be greatly received!
