Visa incase of illness

Hello,

My partner (Mexican passport holder) but swiss local in terms of work has just fell ill with Cancer. His mother has arrived from Mexico and needs to stay during the course of the treatment. My understanding is that you are allowed to stay on a tourist visa for 'Maximum 90 days within a six month period i.e. a total of 180 days within a course of a year. There must be atleast 1 month gap between the 90 days.'

She arrived on the weekend of July 9th and is due to go back in September 1st but since the bad news wants to prolong her stay as much as possible.

Can anyone please tell me if there is a special visa that we can apply for which will allow to to stay during the course of the treatment?

Thank you in advance,
Charné

Actually to satisfy the 90 in 180 days requirement, you need a 3-month gap between the 90 days.

Thank you!!

I have been doing some more research and it seems that you can apply for a humanitarian visa or a visa type D for an intended long stay. It all comes down however to the commune to grant the duration and type of visa. I will follow through with this process and post an update soon incase anyone ever finds themself in this situation!
