EU/EU unmarried couple - B permit for partner?

I am shortly moving to Zurich with my long-term girlfriend. I shall be getting a B permit. She will be looking for self-employed work as a business English teacher, and so will be able to use the usual 3 month/6 month rule before getting a B permit herself.

However, I have read that to be able to get a B permit, she needs to turn over 50000CHF/year. I've no idea if this is possible, but if not, I presume she would normally have to stop working, maybe leave the country?

Clearly this is not what we want. We have the intention of staying in Switzerland for a long time. I read somewhere else that I could "sponsor" her by showing I had a certain amount of money, and this would be done as some kind of civil partnership, or maybe even marry?

This is all as clear as mud to me. Can anyone clarify the situation?

Re: EU/EU unmarried couple - B permit for partner?

Hi - I just read an old post of yours and I am dying to know what happened with your girlfriends permit.

More specifically, I am dying to know where you heard the 50K figure. I have heard a 30K figure.

I am in a similar situation. I am British, non-married with Swiss Partner who has been fully supporting me for the five years of my B permit. Now I am going for my C permit in Zurich and they want me to independently show bank statements. We are wondering how much the bank statements must show and whether we can do some kind of registered partner agreement.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Marie

Re: EU/EU unmarried couple - B permit for partner?

you're British - why is anyone caring? Heck, you could stay with a B permit really.

I am sure they want to check whether you've been evading tax more than anything.

do you know what the advantages for you the C offers?
and
ask the Einwohnerkontrolle what they want to see.

You are not subject to quotas or anything like that.

Re: EU/EU unmarried couple - B permit for partner?

i think i read somewhere that with C permit the + on B-eu permit is that you are allowed to vote and buy fireamrs.

fantastic i always wanted to buy a tank!

Ok The problem our first friend had is EXACTLY what i have to deal with now!!
so instead of creating new post if anyone can shed some light on the case would be great!!

maybe in a couple of the Romandie-based Cantons, you can vote. Not Zurich.
Guns and gun-club membership may still be a challenge.
