Where do i start?

Hi everyone,

Would appreciate some advice on the steps to be taken in my situation.
I am a Singapore Citizen engaged to a German. We plan to marry sometime towards the end of the year.
We are hoping to do so in Switzerland. Is there a special permission required to do so?
My fiance is based in Zurich and currently holds a B permit. What is the procedure for me to be able to join him after this? Will i have to leave the country after our wedding and apply from outside?
Also, on account of my fiance, will i be eligible for a B permit as well?

Thank you all in advance

Welcome to the forum and hopefully soon to Switzerland.

You'll find the information you need here.

https://www.ch.ch/en/marriage/

Your fiancÚ needs to contact his local civil registry office to find out what documents he/you need.

As a Singapore national you don't need a visa to enter Switzerland long term.

"Nationals of the following states do not require a visa to enter Switzerland under any circumstances: Brunei, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore.

However, the competent Swiss authority will issue a prior authorisation of a residence permit in the following cases:

a) for a stay of more than 90 days, or
b) a stay involving gainful employment:
lasting more than eight days, or
from the first day of work in the primary or auxiliary construction sectors, the hospitality sector, industrial or private cleaning services, surveillance and security services, itinerant sales and services or erotic services.

This prior authorisation of a residence permit is issued directly to the foreign national, or to a third party (employer), by the cantonal migration authority. The Swiss diplomatic or consular mission is not involved in this procedure."

So you/he need to contact his cantonal migration office to find how what you need to do to apply for a permit so you can live here before the wedding.

Once you're married the permit will be changed to a family reunification one and yes, it will be the same as his allowing you to live and work here. No need to leave the country at all.
