Questions about filling out the long-stay(D) visa application

Hello all!


Been a lurker on the forums for about a year and some months now, finally making my debut post My boyfriend of 4-ish years and I have decided to tie the knot in! I'm very excited, but also very nervous, as I want to make sure I make no mistakes.


I am an American citizen and my fiance(I don't know how to do the fancy 'e', don't judge me please ) is Swiss. We plan on getting married in Switzerland and I will live there with him afterward. Therefore, I was told by the Embassy to apply for a D visa for family reunion. I've never done a visa application or anything of the like before in my life, so please keep that in mind.



Now that I have the background info and tea out of the way, I do have some questions about some of the fields on the visa application, if the lovely people of EF would be so kind (Mostly Section B "Purpose of Stay"):



1) Question 22 of Section B wants me to indicate the intended number of months of my stay. Since I plan on living there with my fiance, I'm not sure what I should put there since it asks for a number... Could I write indefinite or something of the like?



2) Question 23 of Section B asks for my intended date of arrival. As I am not sure of when I will be there approximately, should I just put "unsure" or give them my best guess?

3) Question 25 of Section B asks for requested number of entries. I figured a single entry would work, but I'm not sure really...

4) Questions 28 and 29 of Section B are reserved for those applying for the visa for reasons other than family reunion(job, medical treatment, or school) I assume, or am I wrong? Should I just put "Not Applicable" in those fields?

Sorry for the wall of text! I know some of these questions seem like common sense, but I just want to make sure I don't misinterpret anything and prolong the process, as I'm new to all of this stuff.


Be gentle please

Welcome to the Forum. Any reason you want to get married in Switzerland as opposed to in the USA? From my experience the latter is easier in terms of paperwork...

Thank you for the welcome. As for why we decided to get married in Switzerland instead of the USA... There's no particular reason. We did read that getting married in the United States is much easier, but we just decided this is what works best for us. Besides, I don't really mind the paperwork(good experience for the paperwork in the future, I'm sure)
