how to send an invitation?

Hi,

I'm in Zurich now with Visa type "D" and I have already applied for residence permit.
I'm wondering to know if anybody knows how I can send an invitation to my parents, so they could get Visa and come to zurich.

danke,

Re: how to send an invitation?

I wrote the following letter to invite my brother from Egypt, and it worked!

--


I wish to invite my brother (BROTHER_NAME) for a vacation to visit me in Zürich, Switzerland during the period between DATE and DATE.

I am employed by COMPANY/UNIVERSITY since 2010 as a POSITION. I hold a Aufenthaltsbewilligung B #PERMIT_NUMBER (see copy attached). I will hold financial responsibility of my brother during his visit, and will ensure he travels back before the expiry of his Visa.

MY_BRO_NAME will be staying with me, throughout the duration of his visit, in my apartment located at:
MY_APPARTMENT_ADDRESS

Should there be any reason to contact me, you may reach me on:
• Office phone:
• Mobile phone:
• Email:

Details of my brother:
Full name:
Date of Birth:
Egyptian passport number:
Phone number:

Thank you for your time and kind consideration of the attached visitor visa application.

Best regards,
MY_NAME

I signed it, sent an original copy to my brother + a copy of my B-permit. Make sure your parents check the Swiss embassy website in Iran, to determine the exact requirements for a visitor visa. You can also modify my letter saying they will hold financial responsibility for themselves

Re: how to send an invitation?

You don't need to go to the canton, but it's better if you send one copy to your brother and one copy to the Swiss Embassy in Iran.

My letter is generally something like:





TO « CONSULAT GENERALE DE SUISSE »



In view of a visit to me in Lausanne, Switzerland, I am kindly requesting you to issue a visa for my mother XXXX and my father XXXXX.They will be visiting me various times throughout the years starting from XXX to XXX. I will be covering all of their expenses during their visit(s).

I currently work for XXX and reside at XXX. My work permit, my work contract are attached, as proofs of my employment and residence.

I would be most grateful if you could grant a multiple entry visa for 2 years for XXX & XXX and thank you for your kind collaboration. You can find all of their details below.

Yours sincerely,



XXX
Telephone:
Mobile:

My father's:
Passport number:
Date of Birth:

My mother's:
Passport number:
Date of Birth:

and their address at last.
