Registering marriage/applying for a B permit

Hi everyone--

I am hoping someone has some thoughts/advice on this: I am a Malaysian married to a Swiss man. We have just moved to Switzerland, and the registration of our marriage with the canton is underway (we got married in the US). In the meantime, can I start the process of applying for a B permit? I am here on a tourist visa (90 days), so I am a bit worried about timing.

Thank you so much!

Re: Registering marriage/applying for a B permit

You'll need your marriage certificate for the application I believe so can't really start the process without it, but check with the migration office to be sure as each may have slightly different rules on what documents are required. Ask at the canton migration office if your visa can be extended. It wouldn't normally, but as you're married to a Swiss national they may be more lenient. If not, you'll have to leave the Schengen area and apply through the normal channel, i.e from the US, for family reunification.
