Effects of RAV

Hi.

Good Evening.

I just wanted to confirm a few things or should I say something. I have been told that I can go to RAV so that they can help me find a job. Since I will be getting my husband next year from the Philippines, would that not be affected by me going to RAV? Or is it just by going to the Sozialamt that it will have any effect/s?

Thank you in advance.

What you write is difficult to understand.

The RAV help you with or without your husband.

The Social Services expect your husband to pay for you.

Re: Effects of RAV

Based on your introduction, I assume that you (a Swiss citizen) need to find a job in Switzerland in order to bring your family over from the Phillipines. Are you asking whether it will affect your chances of them getting the relevant permits if you ask RAV for help in your job search?

Yes, I am a Swiss citizen who just came from the Philippines and I want to bring my family (my children are Swiss Citizens while my husband is a Pilipino) here. But for me to be able to bring my husband here, I have to give them a copy of my salary for the past three months, which is one of the requirements of the Migration Office who at the same time has the application of my husband. But since I am only fluent in English (since I will just start my German classes tomorrow), it was suggested that I go to RAV so that they can find a job that is in an English speaking field.

My question would be, will it affect my chances of getting my husband when I will ask for the help of RAV? Since it would be like I am asking for the help of the government or they might think that I am incapable of supporting my husband when the time comes.

Thanks in advance.

I`m sorry if my introduction was very confusing and incomplete.

But a much detailed explanation is posted before this post.

Thank you.

Re: Effects of RAV

How long have you been married?

If six years or more, your husband can apply for facilitated Swiss citizenship.

Re: Effects of RAV

The RAV is an unemployment agency office. They might be able to find you a job, or some training.

The unemployment insurance is separate and claims are partly adninistered by the RAV. I don't think you will get any money from the insurance unless you have worked here for 12 months during the last 2 years.

It is okay if I don`t get any money from them but a job will be much appreciated, if they can find one for me. =)

I just wanted to make sure that my going to RAV will not result to any negative effect/s on my application for my huband for us to have a regroupment of my family here to Switzerland.

Re: Effects of RAV

Going to RAV to help you get a job shouldn't effect your chances to get your husband here once you get a job. If you are on social services help that will probably cause you problems as you need to be able to support your husband and not rely on social help.

RAV is not social help. As was said, you probably don't qualify to get money from them. Only help (maybe) finding a job.

Good luck!

Thank you very much and I hope they can help me find a job. It is not easy to find one especially though I am a Swiss Citizen, I lack the German language. =)

Re: Effects of RAV

I went to RAV this morning and they told me to choose an Arbeitslosenkasse. Would that not have any effect in my husbands apllication?

The Arbeitslosenkasse is just the payment buro from which your money would be paid. Nothing to do with your husband.

Re: Effects of RAV

Isn't this an extension of this thread Help about Family Regroupment I miss my family!

All they are asking you is a company to pay you the cash, if you are entitled to Arbeitslosenkasse. Choose one that's convenient.

You say you just came from the Philippines, so did you work here before? I not, you won't be entitled.
And can I just clear one thing up? You say you are a Swiss citizen. Do you mean Swiss resident, do you mean you have a Bewilligung or a Swiss passport?

Once we know this, we might be able to give you more detailed answers

Exactly. Several times in fact.




I don't know why they are asking you for a Arbeitslosenkasse. Did you ask them? Generally, if you haven't worked in the 12 months last 24 months you've not paid in and thus not eligible. Be careful they are not planning to get you on social aid/welfare!! That will effect your attempt to bring over your husband.

Could be "none of the above", as being a Swiss citizen entitles you to obtain a Swiss passport, but does not require that you obtain one.

Where you born in Switzerland? If not you may be entitled to repatriation assistance.

Not that same. =)

Yes, I just came from the Philippines. My parents are both Swiss Citizens. with regard to the entitlement of money from RAV, it is perfectly okay with me if I am not entitled. Anyway, I just came back here.

I am a Swiss Citizen with a Swiss Passport and a Swiss Identification Card.
