Residence Permit for Malaysian passport holder

hello everyone!!!

i hope some of you can help me out here.

i am a malaysian working in singapore and will soon leave for lausanne with my boyfriend who has been offered a job there for 2 years. i have been told and found out from the FOM website that as a Malaysian, it is not required for us to get a visa to stay over 90 days however I will have to apply for a permit to live there with him. My questions are:

1. we have just recently gotten our French PACs status. would that be of any help at all to justify my living there with him?

2. in the visa directives, it is mentioned that i need to file my permit application at the canton before entering switzerland. anyone know how that is possible?

3. the swiss embassy in singapore (i am currently working in singapore) has explained that they do not issue any permits. which permit should i be looking at? B or L?

4. what documents does the canton require? do i need them translated to french?

i really really hope someone can shed some light on this. i have tried calling the canton and also emailing but not much info has been passed on

anyone currently in or has been in a similar situation? how do you guys go about it?

thanks so much everyone in advance!!!

You mean up to 90 days right? Over 90 days requires a visa .

Via the Swiss embassy in your country.

Hi Swissbob,

Thanks for your reply.

Yes he is French. The Swiss Embassy here has clarified I do not need to apply for a visa if I wish to stay over 90 days in Switzerland as I am holding a Malaysian passport and the new directives from FOM allows this. They also mentioned that I should apply for permit at the canton as they do not issue permits at the Embassy. So which permit can I apply for?

Thanks so much!!!
