EU-17 Concubine permit exists in Zug?

Hi all

I'll be going to the Zug Immigration Office tomorrow to apply for my B permit as an EU-17 national with a indefinite work contract.

My girlfriend (also EU-17) is unemployed and will be registering as well. The questions I have are:

1) Does Zug offer a concubine permit where I say I am financially responsible for her for the next 5 years or until she gets a job? Anyone had experience of this in Zug?

I can't find anything online for this, only place that supports this is Vaud.

2) If concubine is not a choice, should be apply for a L-permit as she will be job hunting? Is it a 3-month permit she should apply for or can she apply for a 1-year one?

I've looked everywhere for this but no reference for Zug anywhere. Thanks in advance for any help

Re: EU-17 Concubine permit exists in Zug?

I think someone said recently that only Geneva and Vaud support this, but check with the Zug office anyway in case I'm wrong.

You won't be applying for her, she needs to do it herself if she's moving here. She'll need to show she can support herself financially while she's job hunting. Initially she just has to register as a job seeker so won't get an L permit as far as I know. Whether you can provide statements for her on the financial side you'd need to check with Zug.

Re: EU-17 Concubine permit exists in Zug?

In theory you can get a concubine permit in any canton in Switzerland but some cantons are more inclined to award it than others.

I think you're thinking of registered partnerships between couples ( not same sex) which are only recognised in two cantons in Switzerland, Neuchâtel and Geneva. In Neuchatel a registered partnership is treated exactly the same as if the couple were married.

Re: EU-17 Concubine permit exists in Zug?

Perfect, we're going together tomorrow and will update here.

I always wondered how much would be enough for the authorities to 'support yourself financially' in this situation?

Is there a specific amount they have per month like 2000 chf per month so if they see a bank account with 10,000 chf then it's probably okay for the 3 month permit? Any links?

They usually reckon on around CHF100 per day per person so about CHF3,000 a month. Might be able to cut that down somewhat for two of you though.

Re: EU-17 Concubine permit exists in Zug?

To add my own experience here (being FR though).

I landed a job in Romandie and got the girlfriend over (we're not married) shortly thereafter.

She went to the commune with my work contract, proof that we both had a local and paid for Swiss health insurance and that I would cover her expenses while she was living in Switzerland. 1 week later I got an invoice for CHF 70 which I paid and 2 days later she got her B-Permit.

This said, we're both from Northern Europe and I have noticed that every time we have something to get sorted it happens extremely fast (in comparison with friends from other EU / non-EU countries going through the same).

May be pure coincidence...

Re: EU-17 Concubine permit exists in Zug?

The origin of the applicants does play a big part but for EU-17 nationals (which is the case of the OP) there isn't normally a problem.
Sufficient funds ( ie a job/ savings) is usually good enough.

It's non EU and the more recent EU-8 states which are more of an issue.

Re: EU-17 Concubine permit exists in Zug?

Got mine through very quickly and they advised that it's too early for gf to worry about it as she has 3 months to find a job without any permit.

If she hasn't got a job in 3 months time, she said we should g o back and we will discuss options but they seemed very friendly and feltlike we wouldn't ever have a problem anyway.

I guess it's because we're EU-17 so solutions are easy either way.
