Family dependent work permit approval delay

Hi ,

I have reached Geneva Switzerland on 7th March'19 . Unfortunately although I had received the B permit approval from Bern , it was rejected in Geneva (saying for first two years for my profile it will be L !). I should have listened to the experts here

Nevertheless , now I am waiting for my wife and daughter's dependent visa approval. They had submitted the application on 12th March'19 in Switzerland Embassy in New Delhi India. File received in Geneva on 19th March'19.

It is already 14 weeks from submission now I know it takes as long as it takes as per expertise comments here. I had sent them an email and received the below response


"" From: Chancellerie OCPM (DSES) <chancellerie.ocpm@etat.ge.ch>

Bonjour,
La demande se trouve actuellement à l'examen auprès de notre secteur.
Nous vous prions de bien vouloir patienter jusqu'à l'issue de la procédure qui devrait être d'environ quatre semaines.
Avec nos salutations les meilleures.

Route de Chancy, 88
Case postale 2652 – 1211 Genève 2 ""

This means , its under process and I need to wait for 4 weeks. I received this on 27th May'19 .So its 3 weeks now.

My question is , Is this a generic response they give or it is actually four weeks time from 27th May and I can expect this anytime from now to next week.

I have a daughter of 3 years now and when she asks everyday, when is she seeing me, it really panics me after 3 months wait time


Thanks in advance and apologies for a long post.

Regards,
praveena Saya

Hang in there, things in Romandie Cantons generally take a little more time.

Thanks Ankurm .

Yes Hanging in there But you know after crossing 12 weeks , some fear starts to creep in . And luckily some nice guy from OCPM responded to mail which I sent 6 weeks back !

My only query is, if they say 4 weeks, it is under process and usually won't take more than that right ? There was no need for him to respond. Still he did. I really owe him a thanks to him/her (and So to you for the responses here )

Information section in OCPM office if highly confusing, they don't tell anything except that its under process and you need to wait !

So I hope I should hear from them this week or next week..Hopefully.
