Travelling back to the us with an L permit

I have an L permission and am allowed to stay based on the fact I am preparing to marry a swiss guy in February. I want to go back to the us for the holidays, and also a quick trip to Germany with my fiance to see his folks. I'm wondering if i will have trouble at the airport as my passport doesnt show anything other than the last stamp when i entered back in July. Do i show the letter i received saying it was ok to stay. is there some pfficial form i need or something else i need to request?

Do you have a physical L permit? If so, just present that with your passport when you leave and enter Switzerland for the US (no one will ask for it when going to Germany).

Re: Travelling back to the us with an L permit

Actually, no official permit. Just a letter from the migration dept saying i can stay and that i must provide documentation by feb 20 to show our legal marriage. I feel like this isnt offical enough for passport control at the airport and im worried that in some strange case they check at the border in Germany, im in trouble there too.

I think you should contact they Zurich migration department and ask what you might need - they might tell you to get a re-entry visa, which is fairly straightforward to get (90 CHF and a visit to the office in Zurich).
