Registered Partnership between foreigner and Swiss national?

Hello! Well, Iím a non-UE citizen and Iíve been living in Belgium for a year, Iíve asked for asylum and still no answer. Last October Iíve met a Swiss man that is working temporally in Brussels, weíve been dating since then and last March we moved together.
He must return to Montreux on November and he asked me to go with him.
But out of Belgium Iím illegal because my Schengen visa is over a year ago.

Is it possible for us to get in a registered partnership just submitting all the documents necessary? Or is it necessary to have a legal residence permit in Switzerland before starting the process? Thanks!

You (or better still your partner) might like to ask at Pink Cross, the LGBT rights organisation, which offers legal adivce to its members.

Re: Registered Partnership between foreigner and Swiss national?

You do not need a residence permit to get married/registered partnership. But you must be legally in the country. Depending on your situation this means a marriage preparation visa.

More information: https://www.eda.admin.ch/countries/b...nregistre.html

Be aware that if you leave Belgium you might not be able to go back. It might be better to get married in Belgium and then apply for a family reunification visa afterwards.

Expect to be asked serious questions about the relationship too. Less than a year old and you don't have any status in Belgium? This could be seen as an attempt to get around the possibility of being refused asylum.

Thanks for your reply. This answer more or less my question, Iíd have to ask for it in the embassy of Switzerland in my country and I canít go back There. But we will read carefully and try to find some legal advice, if itíll be too complicated Iíll just stay in Belgium waiting for the decision.

I have a work permit but still I donít have the final decision after the interview, the process is very slow here. And I am aware of all things they might ask, nothing to be afraid of. But maybe itíll be better to wait for the decision and start the process here as @AswissintheUS commented
