Mother-in-law from NZ - how can she live with us?

I am moving to Switzerland and wanted my mother in law come and live with us (to look after two boys). My husband will continue working in the UK and come over weekends to visit us. He has UK passport but his mum only has NZ passport and indefinite leave to remain in UK. What is she allowed? How long could she stay, does she need a visa if officially she won't be working but just staying with relatives?

Thanks!

I smell something funny here.

On a different thread you wanted to bring your child minder from the UK but she didn't want to come, so were looking to hire a live in one here. This thread is looking for a permit for your mother in law to do the same thing

Well she obviously needs a child minder and the mother-in-law has offered to help if it can be done legally.

What I am wondering is, could you live with your mother-in-law? I love mine to bits, but I don't think I could live with her. Something to think about, because it could get messy if it doesn't work out...

spot on - my nanny doesn't want to come with me and I am freaking out because it's a bit too much of a newness right now - job, country, husband being home only on weekends because he still works in London... and then also needing to find a new nanny for two very young children, and I also know that I will be travelling for business (hence not beeing home overnight) and the thought of leaving children with someone whom I only known for a month or two is really worrying!

My mother-in-law is a nice lady (I get on with her 100 times better then with my own mum) - I know, it won't be easy and there are drawbacks to having relatives looking after kids (e.g. I can't really tell her how I want things to be done and how children need to be looked after) ... But at least I knew she won't deliberately harm them, she has genuine feelings towards them... They would be safe with her ...But you are right, who knows may be in 6 months time we will so hate each other:-)

Hallo

You can apply for a Dauervisum for your mother in law in your kanton.

Hi could you explain about the Dauervisum in detail. I am also interested to know how to proceed.

My only question would be, WHY the hell would you want to live with your MiL in the 1st place?

While you can apply it is unlikely you will be successful.

Search the forum a bit more - loads on this topic.

Re: Mother-in-law from NZ - how can she live with us?

so ... to come back to the original question. If someone has a NZ passport and would like to live with her EU relatives in Ch without working - how/if it is possible/ would one go about it?

Re: Mother-in-law from NZ - how can she live with us?

I am a non EU , ( Indian ) . I always applied for dauervisum for my parents for the last 5 years
The visa is for 1 year with Mulitple entry ....
All the tasks for dauervisuam should be done by you and signed by your gemeinde and you have to give it to your kanton.

They will issue you a letter stating that your MIL got the visa for one year...
Just send this letter to your MIL and your MIL should give this papaer to the emabassy of switzerland in her country.
The whole procedure costs 110 sfr, which u have to pay in swiss
