Sibling "īmport" from EU country to Switzerland???

Hello Everyone!

I was just wondering if anyone has any advice on the matter of: getting a younger sibling (15 yo) to start school and reside here in CH, while parents stay away in the home country..?
As his sister, do I qualify as a guardian, if I am employed full time, B-permit, have a place to accommodate and general support?
Any advice much appreciated! Thank you, have a great week!

No, only the following directly related to you.

Spouse, registered partnership
Children and grandchildren under the age of 21 or older if you agree to pay their living expenses,
Parents and grandparents if their living expenses are covered.

Nephews/nieces/cousins don't come into the equation.

And at 15 transferring at that age could be disastrous for his future. Swiss kids have already been streamed for either going on to gymnasium or into trade apprenticeships. He'll have little chance of going to uni and if he doesn't already speak a Swiss language it'll be even more difficult for him. Leave him where he is to finish school. Then maybe he could apply to uni here.

I guess she counts as meat and will be subject to import duties and also MWST if she's valued at over 300 CHF. This is assuming you carry her; if she delivers herself to your house then MWST is charged once the total value is over about 65 CHF.

Can you also claim the tax back from the other country?

Thank you for the reply, your website link is a lot of help! I will ask in the Migration Amt for further details, thanks again

The question was about a sibling, not a nephew/niece/cousin.

All right, sisters and brothers don't either. Happy? If her parents were prepared to move over too and she can afford to support them all then yes it would work, but not her brother on his own.
