I need some help with my national visa in CH.

hey everybody, i'm colombian but right now i'm studying german in Switzerland.
I have some questions about my visa, and will be great if anybody can give me some information about what to do.

in my visa says that it is valid from 18-05-11, until 11-08-11 but in the space of duration of stay there are just XXXX.

as i want to stay here till december i want to know if maybe i need to ask for an Extension or not. and if i have to, is it hard or i have to go back to colombia on august?
thanks for all the information..

Could it be a Swiss issued Schengen visa that you have ? If yes, search on this forum for Schengen for related information.

For stays which exceed three months, so-called national visa (category D) are issued by the relevant Schengen state where the third-country national intends to reside.

[Q&A] Schengen Visa - all you need to know

A type D visa is typically given as a precursor to a long stay, so without further information as to whether you are a student / coming here to take up a job / on temporary assignment it is impossible to say.

The dates in the visa give the window in which you have to enter Switzerland, which you already have.
