Extention of Student Visa

Hello There:

I am a Non.EU student in Switzerland, I want to extend my visa. as it is my second year here in Switzerland, is there any one to know how much money should I prove as my bank account ( guarantee), to extend my visa?
In Zurich canton. and what will happen if we have less? can we prove our bank statement during the last year that shows we always had enough money to live without government help? Because My family always send money for me every few months and they can not transfer too much at once.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Re: Extention of Student Visa

Will you be continuing your studies? That's probably the first key requirement for you to be able to extend your visa.

For me, even though I'm broke off my ass (part-time work here is the only thing keeping me afloat during my studies), it was easy to prove ample finances. Even though I personally didn't have any money at all, my boyfriend just had to e-mail a screenshot of his bank account to the Swiss Consulate in Canada where I applied for my visa. That was all they needed! They didn't seem to take the whole finances thing very seriously.

I should note that my boyfriend is Swiss, which may have helped, but I imagine that if your family showed their bank account it would do the trick, especially if it's apparent that they've been sending you money regularly.

Ultimately, it might be best to just ask the embassy/consulate where you're applying - I'm sure they'll be happy to answer your question.
