Facilitated Naturalization from Canada

Hello,
I have read a lot of posts regarding facilitated naturalization. Has anyone done it from living in Canada? I am a Swiss National, and my wife is applying to become one. Both my kids are already swiss citizens.
We have been to Switzerland once since married. (Been married 7.5 years)
I have lots of cousins in Switzerland.
We plan to move there in July of 2014 for 1 year.
We are in a Swiss Club but don't make it to many events.
My wife doesn't speak any of the official languages. She learned French in high school like most canadians but that was a long time ago.

Has anyone applied with similar ties (not too many) and no language component and been approved or denied?
Anyone done their interview in Vancouver, BC?

I think we should apply before moving as then we wouldn't need the work visa, but I think the chances are higher after living there for a year. Any thoughts on this? If denied now, an one reapply in a year or two?


Thanks,
Shayne

Re: Facilitated Naturalization from Canada

Hi Shayne,

I don't know enough about the naturalization process to comment on that. However, you say you are a Swiss citizen and that she's Canadian. If that is the case, you could move here and she could obtain a B-permit (family reunification) that would include working privileges. Thus, no separate work permit required. Does that help?

Re: Facilitated Naturalization from Canada

Thanks. That would probably work too. I never thought about that. We would like to get the citizenship at some point anyways so maybe I will apply for both the family reunification and the citizenship at same time, just in case the one doesn't get passed.

Re: Facilitated Naturalization from Canada

You can apply via article 28 either outside or from within Switzerland. It can take about 18 months.

Re: Facilitated Naturalization from Canada

Similar situation here, except we have been married 16 years. We are moving to CH from Canada this summer. As a Canadian your wife has to apply for a visa first ( long term visa D for family reunification),takes 2-4 months to process apparently, we are currently waiting for my husband's. She will get a B permit once you register in CH. I would wait with the naturalization until you have lived there for a bit, should be much easier then. My hubby doesn't speak much French either, he can swear though,lol, used to live in Quebec.
