I would like to ask if how long is the processing of the marriage recognition in Switzerland, if the couple decide to marry abroad or in Hong-Kong. The couple Nationality are Swiss and Filipino. And what need to do in able to take up residence in Switzerland. After marriage

Does the consulate of Switzerland will allow the couple to ask for a family reunification if they still didn't register they're marriage in Switzerland? Or it will need first to register the marriage in Switzerland before they will allow to ask for a family reunification.

I got married abroad last year (see my post https://www.englishforum.ch/family-m...confusing.html)

We are both foreigners and it turned out the process was simpler for us for that reason (just announce it at Controle des habitants).

One of you is Swiss, so you need to announce it to the Swiss Embassy of whatever country you marry in, fill out some papers, provide documents. They told me it takes around 6 months after receiving the documents.

So you mean it takes 6months for the marriage to be register in Switzerland because my partner is a Swiss and we plan to marry in abroad instead at Switzerland. And we do a family reunification after marriage registration, so do you think it is much better to apply for marrying in Switzerland directly than abroad because as I heard if you plan to marry in Switzerland it takes 6months waiting also but it's already included there ther marriage preparation and residency after marriage.

I advise you to contact the Swiss Embassy of whatever country you wish to marry in first.

Maybe you can already start the process before becoming legally married and so it would be reflected in Switzerland sooner.

In any case, they'll give you advice & timelines

While it is advisable to register with the Swiss embassy, it is not required (BTDT).

But yes, 6-12 months is normal.
