Getting married

Hi all,

I currently live in switzerland with my swiss girlfriend and baby and I have an L permit.

However we are getting married in march and I am wondering can I only apply for the B permit after the marriage or can I get the ball rolling in some way before.

Just worried as my L permit finishes end of april and I want to be able to start my business officially (which I need the B permit for) and keep earning the money for my family.

Re: Getting married

Only after you are married.

Re: Getting married

Are you getting married here, or abroad? If getting married here, I think the paperwork you do for that will help get things rolling but you won't qualify to receive the B permit until after you're actually married. If getting married abroad, expect delays in processing the permit.

Note that marrying a Swiss citizen only gives you a 1-year B permit that has to be renewed each year.

Then as mentioned above you should be issued with a 1-year B after the marriage. If you're concerned, contact the cantonal migration office for instructions on what additional paperwork you might need.
