Family reunion Visa processing time limit

Hi,

We have applied for my wife's family reunification visa for zurich. Embassy told us that it will take maximum 8 to 10 weeks to approve the visa application and thereafter shall issue an authorization letter and then you can proceed to get your visa stamped on your visa.

My query is that does the embassy takes such long time to give the approval or it can be done before that also.

Thanks.
Waiting for your kind revert.

Sorry this isn't what you want to hear, but it takes as long as it takes. 8-12 weeks is quite common, and from what I've read, family reunification for Indian citizens seems to take a bit on the longer side due to some of the apostilles and checks they need to make.

Unfortunately not. I know it's frustrating, but you just have to wait it out. There is literally nothing YOU can do about it, except to quickly furnish additional docs if at all asked.

Re: Family reunion Visa processing time limit

hi..
ive applied for a family reunification visa in India to join my husband in lausanne.. ive completed 13 weeks.. when my husband enquired what is the visa status. they asked him to.submit additional documents and they did send a letter asking for them which my husband missed it.. as he shifted his residence. now we have submitted them by post only.. so hoping will get the visa soon.
so pls keep a check on any communication from the canton or fedral office to ur address.. to avoid any further delay. all the best.
