Re: Plans to move in Neuchatel

Dear friends
Im planning to move to Neuchatel as an student together with my wife and to children, 10 and 2 years old. I am worried about education of my boy. I wonder can he adopt to Neuchatel's French speaking schools? He is not familiar with French language.
And one more question: is there any student accomodation or low cost housing for an student with 3 attendants in Neuchatel?

Re: Plans to move in Neuchatel

Welcome to the forum and soon to Switzerland.

Can't help with the accommodation query, but Swiss schools are well organised to help incoming non-Swiss language speaking children. At 10 he may have some trouble in picking it up and may have to repeat a year of school, but that's often done here.

I assume it's the University of Neuchatel that you'll be studying at? If so have you seen their Costs and Funding page?

http://www2.unine.ch/prospectivestud...e-6013_en.html

For accommodation you're going to need to look for at least a 3 room place (living and 2 bedrooms) so probably going to be around CHF1,000 a month at least. Health insurance will also need to be arranged for all of you. You could also see if the uni has anything available that would suit.

http://www2.unine.ch/prospectivestudent/page-24892.html

Are you sure they can come here with you? Have you applied to bring them here and provided the necessary proof that you can support all of you while you study? I just ask as I know EU/EFTA nationals who study can bring their families if they can support them, but can't find anything that says non-EU nationals can do the same. You'd be looking at at least a daily figure of CHF200 to cover both adults so around CHF6,000 a month minimum to show you can financially support them while you're studying here, but check with the Neuchatel migration office to be sure.

Thank you Medea
Yes I am going to study Neuchatel University.
I have appointment with the embassy to apply for visa. They told me nothing about the impossibility of bringing family. Regarding the financial support I have prepared documents showing 3000 CHF monthly.

Re: Plans to move in Neuchatel

A source of information in English for international students planning to study in Switzerland is at the ETH Zurich's website:

https://www.ethz.ch/en/studies/inter...n-housing.html

Regarding your question whether family members can accompany the student to Switzerland, the ETH says this, andwhich confirms what Medea-Fleecesteeler wrote above:
"Subsequent immigration of family members
Family members are only permitted to enter Switzerland with students or subsequently join students if sufficient financial means for each family member as well as a rental contract for accommodation are provided in advance."

Well, I hope that will be enough. Certainly for 1 person it's fine, but for a family of 4? If you look at the upper figures in the Costs and Funding link for Neuchatel University the figure is CHF2,650 - and that's just for the one person. That might stretch to cover 2 adults, but with the 2 children as well I just don't know. Health insurance for the 4 of you will be around CHF600 a month and that's with an HMO plan and the maximum deductibles for everyone. Add rent of around CHF1,000 and you're up to CHF1,600 already. Food is also likely to be more than CHF500 a month for 4 of you too.

Unfortunately, I don't. But you should contact the Neuchatel Migration Office and ask them what figure they would be looking for as they will be able to give you a definitive answer.

Service des migrations
Office du séjour et de l’établissement
Case postale 124
Rue de Tivoli 28
2003 Neuchâtel
tél. : 032 889 63 10
fax : 032 889 98 23
Internet

They will be the people assessing your permit applications so if they aren't happy you can afford to bring your family with you, then you won't get family reunification permits for them. You could also ask them whether you need to provide an accommodation rental agreement as mentioned in Mullhollander's Zurich uni link as that may also be required as part of the permit application process. If you do not have something suitable arranged they may say the rest of the family will have to wait in Iran until you can provide an appropriate rental agreement.
