Switch from B to C permit and language certificate

Hello Everyone,
Hope you all are doing well. I applied for c permit after completing requirement and I get the answer A2 German certificate is compulsary as well. Although I submitted old Goethe Certificate along fresh B1 kursbeschtetigung from K5 Zentrum.
After letter notification I registerd next available Telc A2 exam and wrote letter to Migration office. Yesterday exam was over and it was quite good but result will be annonced after 6-8 weeks my B permit was valid till 14 Dec 2019 now what should I do? I heard being swiss spous one can get swiss visa. So my question is
1. I also need visa if I travel through German border?
2. How long this visa process will take?
3. If I granted this visa what will be validity period of this visa?

Best Regards

Not sure what is the exact question but let me try.
You don't need a visa till your B Permit is valid. Post that yes.
Only the migration authorities can confirm the time needed for the visa.
Same for the validity. If you C Permit is approved, then the visa duration would cover the period.
All the best

Re: Switch from B to C permit and language certificate

Presuming your B permit has expired, and your new C permit has not arrived, yes. You need a visas to travel.

Alternatively, you can simpy get your B renewed while you wait for the C

Re: Switch from B to C permit and language certificate

If your nationality needs a Shengen visa, and you have
  • no Swiss permit, and
  • no Shengen visa
then you should not leave Switzerland to travel into any Shengen country.

Wait in Switzerland until you have received the new Swiss permit.
