Non EU In-Laws?

I'd like to move to Geneva. I currently hold working Irish, UK, and US passports, and I am a citizen of all three and currently resident in the U.S.

I plan on bringing a spouse and child who hold no other passports than U.S. ones -- I understand that it is fairly easy for me to do so on account of my EEA/EU citizenship.

The problem becomes a little bit trickier when considering the sister of my spouse who holds a U.S. passport only -- I can't seem to find info relating to non EEA/EU national sister-in-law's migration rights.

Does my EU citizenship confer any rights to the sister-in-law to work and live in Switzerland? This doc:

http://ec.europa.eu/youreurope/citiz...y/index_en.htm

Seems to suggest so, but was wondering if anyone in this forum has brought a non-EU in-law to Switzerland before and could offer any advice?

You can not bring your sister-in-law unless she is your dependent and even then it's not a given.

You should also note that the page you liked to is about entry visas which US passport holders don't need to visit the country. This is not about residency rights.

I was afraid of that. Thank you very much for the feedback!

Look at the headers on that site. "Travel" is first tab. A couple down there is "Resident" tab. Check that out. But I don't think it will help, again, unless she is your dependent.

That would be because there aren't any .

Re: Non EU In-Laws?

miniMia and swissbob, thanks again for the responses. I did click on that "residency" tab, and it would appear that for all intents and purposes it looks like the only way the in-laws are getting in is going to be the tough road of applying for skilled employment as a non-EU worker.
