No, because it takes as long as it takes. When were the documents on the finances submitted?

Re: Family Reunion for Non-EU (from Afghanistan)

Your best bet is to ask the relevant authority. And they’ll let you know what sort of a time frame to expect.

Re: Family Reunion for Non-EU (from Afghanistan)

Sorry, but no, not really. It takes as long as it takes. If they estimate 6-12 weeks from getting the documents then that's likely what it'll take, but each case is decided on it's merits. It could be longer or could be shorter.

Re: Family Reunion for Non-EU (from Afghanistan)

You cannot. It just takes as long as it takes. There's no hard and fast rule that it will be done in x number of days, sorry. They will examine the paperwork and make their decision in due course. All you can do is wait. So be patient.

You may have to wait several weeks longer. There is no way to speed this up.

Five weeks is nothing, others easily wait 3, 4, 5 months.

Re: Family Reunion for Non-EU (from Afghanistan)

I don't know what bit of it takes as long as they said is difficult for you to understand. Asking the same thing over and over will not generate any different replies. It's just a waiting game you must play like it or not, no one here can influence or speed up the process, or sadly make the waiting any easier..

In addition to the above, what someone else experienced is not necessarily relevant to you. At worst it might give you false hope or make you feel more stress.

Each case is unique and the authorities evaluate them individually. They want to be sure the marriage is legitimate, that the spouse has a large enough accommodation and enough funds to support you, that you're not a criminal, etc. There are many things they investigate and yours is not the only application going through the process.

What I will say is that based on the posts I have seen on this forum, 5 weeks is simply not enough time. When the authorities say 12 weeks minimum they mean it. They won't update you every week and they won't take kindly to being harassed before 12 weeks is up.

I know it is frustrating, but you simply must wait, and stressing out over it now is not doing you or anyone else any good. Sorry!

Dear 3Wishes, Thanks for your useful advise; But I have mention that, it is not only this step that I am waiting since five weeks. do you know since when we have requested for visa and I have waited to join my husband?
I need to say that totally its almost three years and a half that I am waiting.
the one who experience the same situation which I am, will understand what am I feeling.

That isn't even 2 years, so how does is it go from 20 months to 3.5 years

Further, 2016 you made the application, more documents were requested by the kanton and submitted by your lawyer on 14th Feb 2018, and he told you 6-12 weeks... thats only just a bit over 2 weeks before the original post?

Why hire a professional if you are trying to 2nd guess him, and what make you think that random internet people may have a better handle on your personal case than your lawyer?

So these timescales seem off to me. If you applied in July 2016, when did Zurich ask for the additional information, and how long did it take you to provide them with what they needed? The Swiss won't be rushed on this, and if they don't like what they see, or anything seem out of the ordinary, they will look even closer at the case.

I know it's difficult, and yes I've been in a similar position in another country with visa delays, and it is never easy, but honestly, you are making it harder on yourself by grabbing at straws, and just adding more frustration to the situation.

Re: Family Reunion for Non-EU (from Afghanistan)

Dear All, thanks for your comments and sorry for making you confuse. We married year 2014 and that is why I wrote " totally its almost three years and a half that I am waiting."
Yes, it is 20 month that we have applied for Visa. Anyhow, I try my best to be patient more.
your right dear Papa...!!!
