Relocation to Basel

Hello All,

I will be relocating to Basel soon. But my wife and 2 kids will not be relocating with me. Instead, they would be visiting me in Basel frequently and I will be visiting them as well. I would like to check on the below questions,

1. What type of Visa can I apply for my family ? Should i apply for Visitor visa or should i get the dependent visa done for them ?
2. Am i eligible to get the status of International Commuter ?
3. If i get dependent visa done for my family, then would that mean i will need to get Health insurance for my family, even though they are not living with me in Basel, in order to keep the visa status valid ?

Thank you.

See

https://www.sem.admin.ch/dam/data/se...-grueezi-e.pdf

They can stay for 90 days in every 180 days with a visa, but I'm not sure if that allows multiple entry, I assume the above link covers it somewhere.

> 90 days in 180 requires a residence permit.

Re: Relocation to Basel

Playing around with the calculator on https://ec.europa.eu/home-affairs/co...-calculator_en it appears you are allowed 90 days in any 180 day period, including multiple entries so it doesn't have to be consecutive.
