Re: My permit is approved. Can I go to local Gemeinde without picking up my VISA D?

I did call the Kreisburo and they have sent the visa to Singapore I definitely cannot travel that much
As far as i understood, mentioning "migrations" in kreisburo opens the doors
We came, lady looked at my papers, checked my passport and asked where the visa is. Husband replied "migrations said she doesn't need one and it was ok to stay". Thats it! Lady did not check anything or called migrations back....to me it looked like even if we did not call migrations - it would still be fine to mention. (Kreisburo 4)

I also believe Swiss German is the key; husband was a bit pushy and migrations said "ok, fine, we understand".

Just as an update to someone who might have the same issue etc. -

I got the registration done here. The lady at the kreisburo (Kreis 2) called up the migration office and took advice.

I still have to go pick up the visa from Swiss embassy nearby (Germany, France, Italy etc.) before it expires and send a copy to the migrationsamt.

My case: Non-EU, Schengen tourist visa in passport.

I guess going to Germany/France/Italy is better than all the way to Singapore! Congrats!

I guess it matters to them where you reside. When one has a residency in a Schengen country it is possible to come get permit, skipping visa D. But with a tourist visa they request changing it to a "proper one". I still don't think this visa is important if someone is already in the CH, but we can't hide from bureaucracy!

I just found this thread and it fits me perfectly.

Someone from New Zealand said that he/she needed to get the entry Visa D. Although it is not from an official site, at the ETH Welcome site, it says that

* Exceptions
Citizens from Andorra, Brunei, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, San Marino, Singapore and the Vatican City only require the residence permit to have been approved before they enter Switzerland.


https://www.ethz.ch/en/the-eth-zuric...ou-arrive.html

As I am Japanese, I was wondering whether I do really need the entry VISA at all.

Thanks!

But it adds,

Please note: You may not enter Switzerland until you have received your visa or been approved for a residence permit!

So I am guessing with just the residence permit should be enough. Any thoughts?

What are you planning to do at eth? work/study?

Either way, if you are coming to visit for 90 days, you don't need a visa or residence permit.

If you are moving here (staying more than 90 days), you need to get your permit approved before you come to Switzerland - https://www.eda.admin.ch/countries/j.../japanese.html.
