"D visa" question

Hello forum:
So, my wife and I live here already and both have our "B" permit. I'm "EU" she's "non-eu".

In order for her to get her B Permit, she needed a "D Visa in her non EU passport".

Fast forward a year or so, her passport (that has the "D Visa") has expired.

My question is: Now that we have renewed our non-eu passports,

To come in/out of CH or Europe in general, is her B-permit enough to show at the border, as this is what the valid document is, or, she must carry always her old passport with the "D visa" along in case one asks?

Thanks for your comments,

Re: "D visa" question

She needs a valid passport and her B permit:

Foreign nationals from non-EU/EFTA states – travelling in the Schengen area Foreign nationals from non-EU/EFTA states in possession of a valid Swiss foreign national permit B, C, L or Ci do not require a visa to visit a country in the Schengen area (up to 90 days within a 180-day period). However, you must carry a valid Swiss residence permit and valid travel documents (your passport or a Swiss travel document for foreign nationals).

Re: "D visa" question

D visa is just for your wife to enter the country the first time, after that she can use her new passport and permit. The D visa is already expired anyway I suppose, after 1 year.

Re: "D visa" question

as you said she already has a valid B permit, then she does not need a D visa.
