applying for vistor's visa while waiting for spouse visa

Hello,

I am German planning to go to Switzerland soon to find a job, so that my husband (third country) can follow. Unfortunately the procedure of the spouse visa is very long (6 month or longer in our case) and we have been seperated already for some time because of administrative hurdens. Therefore we wonder if it is possible to ask for a visitor's visa while we are waiting for the spouse visa. We are just married and being seperated for almost a year right after marriage is not what we ever expected. Thanks for your advice.

Not sure how it is with CH bit in UK that wouldn't happen - the presumption being made that the person will not return and is seeking to frustrate the immigration system.

Which spouse visa are you applying for, a German one? In which case moving to CH would most likely invalidate it's terms, surely you should be seeking a Family Reunification Visa is CH?

Thanks for your reply,

yes, we are going to apply for a family reunification visa in Switzerland. Right now we are waiting for the legalization of our Indian marriage certificate to registrate our marriage in Germany. This will take 2 month at least. Job search in Switzerland (me) and waiting for family reunification visa (if ever granted) would lead towards the end of the year before my husband and I can meet again. Something unhealthy for any realtionship, especially newly married. We are therefore looking for a solution to shorten this long waiting time. Any advice??

When i was waiting for our family reunification visa I was told I could not visit CH during the processing, and if I did it could possibly void my visa application. Sorry to hear you guys have been separated for so long. When we were going through the process the only thing we could do was have my husband fly to where I was. Best of luck!
