Permits
 
Hi guys! I'm new here, it's nice to be in touch with you all!

My boyfriend, with whom I've been living with for over a year, has moved to Switzerland for work. So now I'm trying to figure our visas and permits to stay in the country on the long term.


I'm from Uruguay, so non-EU, and can only stay for 3 months (and then be out of the country for an other 3 months before coming back).



I've been reading that in order to have a visa for a longer stay, I should apply directly through my boyfriend's company. I mean, they should submit the application.

Does anyone have experience with a similar case?



Thanks so much from now! :))

Sorry, but the company has nothing to do with it. If your boyfriend wants you to move here he needs to apply for a concubine permit for you with the cantonal migration office. He/you need to show it's a long term, committed relationship which ideally will end in marriage and he'll also have to agree to be financially responsible for you for 5 years. You won't be able to work with that permit either. Also note that not all cantons seem to offer this permit - which is for unmarried hetrosexual couples.

Unless they offer you a job, why would they apply for any sort of permit for you? :confused:

You have to arrange this yourself, your bf has to serve as a guarantor for 5 years and show he has the financial means to fully support you. That is aside proving that the relationship is legitimate.

I understand he's not Swiss either. Regardless, you better just get married if you intend to live here with him, though even then it isn't supereasy for you to move here, let alone work.
