Permits for Spouses of Swiss nationals and non- nationals

This is a little complicated but would it be easier for my husband to get a work permit for his new job in Basel if I was to register my married status with the Swiss Embassy here in London! I am registered in Switzerland under my maiden name, my parents ( Swiss father, British Mother, moved to the UK in 1979 and never registered my brother and me with the embassy ) they divorced and my Father in now back in CH. I have done nothing with my Swiss Nationality ( I was born in CH ) My Husband now has a job in Switzerland starting in the summer of 2015 and I was wondering if it would be a help if I was to register my marriage etc over here first? OR would he be given the same visa what ever my status was in CH!

It would be better to register your marriage with the Swiss Embassy in London and also with the commune of your Swiss registration. But I don't think it will make any difference to his permit; he'll get a B permit so long as the new quota limitations haven't been reached yet, otherwise he'll get an L.

Re: Permits for Spouses of Swiss nationals and non- nationals

If he is a British citizen then it probably makes only little difference. You can sort out the fine print when you get here, after his work permit is approved.

However, I would still begin the process of registering everything properly - if you were married in the UK then it's probably easier to get all the documents sorted out from that end and put it in progress before you arrive.

The quotas on B permits for EU-17 nationals are only supposed to last a year. Still the Swiss, as you know, like to do things their own way so it depends on how much things change over the next year. They can only restrict the EU-8 for this year too, having done it last year. Whether there will be a flood of immigrants once the restrictions are lifted as some Swiss fear we'll have to wait and see.

I would check with the Swiss Embassy too on your own status. I know you said you were registered, but I'm not sure the Swiss have automatic inheritance of citizenship. Best make sure before the move in case you need to take any remedial steps. Oh, and start learning German/French/Italian, depending on what part of the country you're planning to move too. It'll help him on the job front if he has another language/s besides English. Will also be useful if he thinks he might want to naturalise as a Swiss citizen and C permit renewals are starting to need language proficiency.

I know the feeling. I was American by birth of British parents. Recently gave up the US side though, due to hassles with the banks here over the new FATCA law coming in. So I'm just British now.

If married to a Swiss, the he will get a B permit in any case. He will be getting the permit as the spouse of a Swiss citizen not as an EU citizen.

Re: Permits for Spouses of Swiss nationals and non- nationals

Basically quotas do NOT count in case of family reunification (and this is what you husband will get), from migrationsamt site:

Who is not affected by the quotas?

Extensions of existing B permits
Non-gainfully employed persons
Persons entering within the framework of family reunification
Posted employees (service providers)
Persons holding an employment contract valid for less than one year (maximum 364 days), i.e. the category of type L short-term permits. These are not subject to any restrictions
EFTA nationals.

Re: Permits for Spouses of Swiss nationals and non- nationals

Yes, but it all depends on whether they move to Switzerland first and he then gets a job, or he applies and then they move. If he applies before they move and the marriage hasn't been registered/notified to the Swiss authorities, then as far as I can see he's subject to possible quota limits. At present the Swiss authorities still have her registered as single which is the whole point of her question.
