Visitor Visa one year multientry

Hallo,

Is it possible to stay more than 90 days on a one year multiple entry visitor visa. Can we request some authorities for it?
My parents are here and we would like them to stay more than 90 days because of my wife's health situation.
They have one year , multiple entry visa , Non-Eu.
Any non-eu persons here managed to do this?

Thanks

No this is not possible. if they complete 90 days they must leave otherwise every single day from 90 days onwards will be considered as overstay.
They will be able to leave after overstaying but it could be Problem in future when they apply for visa again.
And as far as I remember no new visa will be issued before 180 days.

Re: Visitor Visa one year multientry

All multi entry means in this situation is that they could enter and leave Switzerland and/or Schengen several times during that 90 days. After that they have to be out of the country/Schengen for 90 days before they can come back in, assuming the visa lasts that long.

There is no way to get them here longer. As a non-EU national the only other way would have been to have them here permanently as your dependents assuming your acommodation is big enough for everyone according to Swiss standards and your income can support everyone financially. But non-EU nationals are not allowed to bring their parents to Switzerland as dependents, only spouses and children under 18.

They can come and stay as often as they please during one year, but in total no more than 90 days.

Its 90 days in a period of 180 days (calculated from the date of entry). So with a visa validity of 1 year, a person can theoretically stay for 180 days (2 * 90 days stay separated by a 180 day period between them).

The linked page also has a link to a tool that can be used to calculate the number of days one can stay legally based on the previous entry and exit dates.

Shouldn't it be 2*90 days stay separated by a 90 day period between?

Correct.

The current day is the control day and it is important if in the last 180 days (including the control date) there has been a presence of more or less than 90 days to determine if the stay is legal.

For some reason I failed to have "during the control period" at the end of my post, and without that my post is indeed incorrect.

And it is not calculated from date of entry, it is calculated backwards from the control date and one can stay for more than 180 days given that a year does have more than 360 days
