Re: Dependent visa, Permit B for spouses wanting to reunite with family in Switzerlan

The document you attached is for registering marriage in Switzerland which is not required for dependent visa. Why do you want to do that?

If Love Life married a Swiss citizen and wants family reunification that way, I believe registering the marriage would be required, no?

To clarify - Love Life - Are you joining a Swiss spouse, EU, or non-EU?

That's bit strange to me. Since when your husband is staying in Switzerland?

Re: Dependent visa, Permit B for spouses wanting to reunite with family in Switzerlan

Well!! What you say is that your husband is living in Switzerland around 2006, you got married around 2011 and asking for family reunification visa in 2015.

I am not surprised if they are doing some extra steps/checks in your case.

Re: Dependent visa, Permit B for spouses wanting to reunite with family in Switzerlan

Yes I can understand and am ready for the checks, I have completely no issues with that. Anyways long story short, my main question was I attested my certificate in the same year I got married, as per consulate requirement I need to attest again for being not older than 6 months. The authority will not attest on already attested or on copy. So how to tackle this kind of issues? I got answer from Medea Fleecestealer, will follow that now. And if I get any new info, will post it for all with the same requirement like mine. Thank you all for the support

So how to tackle this kind of issues?
1. Get a new marriage certificate from Registrar of Marriage
2. Get it attested from State Home Department
3. Get it apostille from MEA Delhi or its branch offices

Good luck !!

There is a limit of 5 years, so applying after 4 years should not be a problem.

So far he/she has been asked for exactly the same documents as somebody applying immediately after or before marriage - also had to go through the whole hassle of getting fresh documents apostilled in India and the private investigators who take months to write a report.

Re: Dependent visa, Permit B for spouses wanting to reunite with family in Switzerlan

A very useful post and discussion this, thanks!

So I am preparing to undergo the whole process (dependent visa for spouse in India) within the next weeks. What seems new to me now that the current vfs website (both Delhi/Mumbai) says:

Quote:
Applicants who want to stay more than 90 days with family members in Switzerland have to apply for a Family Reunification visa.

There are the two following possibilities:
  • direct submission of the request at the competent cantonal migration authority in Switzerland (time frame approx. 8 - 12 weeks) or

  • submission of the application at the Swiss representation abroad - the application will be forwarded to the competent cantonal migration authorities for decision (time frame approx. 8 - 12 weeks)
Was it mentioned like this earlier too?

And does this mean the mentioned process in the first post here, that your spouse applies in India and you follow-up with migrationsamt to submit additional documents in CH, no longer holds? And that, in principle you could directly apply at the migrationsamt in CH for the authorization letter (Ermächtigung zur Visumerteilung (Einreiseerlaubnis) based on which your spouse can get the visa stamp in India)??

Any experience from someone who applied within last few months is really appreciated. Thanks!

Best,
nilklin

Re: Dependent visa, Permit B for spouses wanting to reunite with family in Switzerlan

1) When you start application at the Migrationsamt ZH you get a letter requesting a list of documents(e.g. rental agreement, employment contract etc.) and spouse need to submit a visa application at the nearest embassy/consulate. Spouse submit visa application along with the required documents(e.g original marriage certificate). Once your spouse submit visa form, application becomes complete and after few weeks you receive authorization letter. Your spouse resubmit passport and gets entry visa D.

2) When your spouse start application at the nearest embassy/consulate. You receive same letter as in step 1 but this time only asking for documents. You submit documents and application becomes complete and after few weeks you receive authorization letter. Your spouse resubmit passport and gets entry visa D.

Basically requirements for both process are same but I feel second one is more faster and straight forward.

Re: Dependent visa, Permit B for spouses wanting to reunite with family in Switzerlan

HI,

Can anybody help me out regarding the entire time frame for dependent Visa process ?

I've submitted my documents at Local VFS office on 20Th of Jan.
My Husband got a mail on 4th Feb w.r.t to the additional documents ( Rental agreement, etc) that need to be submitted
By the time we submitted all the documents ( They have kept asking for additional documents in between) it was 15th Of March

We have still not received any Authorization letter.

I know that the entire time take would be 8-12 weeks.
But i'm in a fix if the process would take
. 8-12 weeks from the time we submitted docs at VFS ( 20th Jan ) or
. 8-12 weeks from the time of submission of all documents ( 15Th March)

Would be really greatful if anyone can help us out with the same.

Usually you can start the clock from the time they have all the documents they need. Sometimes the process takes longer if they find something missing or have trouble verifying. You've got a few holidays thrown in as well during this time frame (Easter and the holidays that follow), so don't be surprised if it's a bit more than 12 weeks.

Re: Dependent visa, Permit B for spouses wanting to reunite with family in Switzerlan

Generally it is 8-12 weeks from the time you submit docs at the VFS. Ask your husband to contact migration office again to check the status of the application.

Re: Dependent visa, Permit B for spouses wanting to reunite with family in Switzerlan

Few months ago I experienced this. Migration office in Zurich keep on saying for 2 weeks that you will get it soon. After that my wife contacted embassy if they received confirmation. They said yes and did visa stamping. Later I received authorization letter with a bill.

Re: Dependent visa, Permit B for spouses wanting to reunite with family in Switzerlan

Hello Everyone
I have been reading the queries and suggestions for last four/five months and hoping/waiting for my dependent visa to come through. But today i got a rude jolt: let me explain-
My husband received his Visa(L) in Nov'16 and i applied for my dependent Visa on Dec 5th after he got his. He couldn't wait for my Visa to come through and left for Geneva in Jan'17, applied and got his Residence permit in March.
Every time we inquired, we were told to wait as the process takes time and today after Five months of wait, I got a mail that they need to verify my Legalized Marriage certificate.
Pretty simple, i thought as I has already got it Apostilled from the MEA.
but apparently Verification means:
I have to submit- my apostilled marriage certificate
His and mine birth certificates- apostilled ( since we both are born before 1989, we don't even have birth certificates still will have to file for late registration)
All of his and mine school/college certificates
and some more....

Is it usual or i am a freak case? They are even asking for 800 CHF to complete this process and minimum duration would be 3 months to get this verification completed and we can't even enquire the status in between.
Really feeling lost and hopeless! Can someone help or share experience or guide me as to go about it?

Re: Dependent visa, Permit B for spouses wanting to reunite with family in Switzerlan

Yes they do this extensive verification randomly. They do similar kind of process when child is born in Zurich to some nationality e.g. Indian if the process was not done at the time of entry. Parents need to bear this verification cost to get child birth certificate.

AFAIK 800 CHF is a tentative cost. They will return or ask for more depending on how many places one would have to visit to verify all the certificates.

I fear there is no way getting around it. You will have to follow due process.
