Concubine Visa experiences
 
Hi,
I'd like to know, from people that went through the process to get a Konkubinat Visa for a non-EU non-married partner

- In which Kantons they requested it (information online is conflicting...some sources say that only a few cantons, like ZH of GE, allow it, other sources say that you can request it in any canton)
- How long they had been with their partner, and how they demonstrated that the relationship was long-term and leading to marriage
- Tips, things to be aware of

Thank a lot

Anybody had any experience, or can recommend an immigration lawyer to get more info?

Most cantons do NOT allow it.

From the Kantonal websites

Likely you will find the answers by discussing this with your local contrôle des habitants.

This is the answer I received from the Zurich Migrationsamt. Did I understood correctly, and they do allow a Konkubinat to be relevant for the purpose of migration?
I also contacted the Bern authorities, but as I expected, they answer instead negatively.

"Ihre Freundin kann auf der Schweizer Botschaft in ihrem Heimatland ein Gesuch um Erteilung eines Einreisevisums zwecks Konkubinat oder Erwerbstätigkeit beantragen.
Parallel können Sie das Gesuchsverfahren von der Schweiz aus beschleunigen. Hierfür wäre das beiliegende Gesuch um Einreisebewilligung vollständig mit einer Passkopie Ihrer Freundin bei uns einzureichen.
Sobald das Gesuch bei uns eingetroffen ist, werden wir Sie schriftlich darüber informieren, welche Unterlagen wir für die Gesuchsprüfung benötigen.

Nach allfälliger Visumerteilung kann Ihre Freundin mit dem erteilen Visum in die Schweiz einreisen und auf der Einwohnerkontrolle Ihrer Wohngemeinde ein Aufenthaltsgesuch einreichen."

Looks that way. Just realize that if you go that way, you will be financially responsible for your girlfriend for the next 5 years.

1) The Foreign Nationals and Integration Act (FNIA) https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...232/index.html which does not know a concubine visa or permit thus such a permit is an exception to the established rule.

2) The result of the MEI. The people in the green marked cantons are against unlimited immigration https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eidgen...%BB#Abstimmung
It is safe to assume that the authority and government in those cantons have a similar stance and will not allow immigration beyond what the FNIA mandates. Btw: Although red on the above map, VS has usually also a hard stance against immigration. VS is also deeply Catholic. An other reason that they might not issue concubine permits.
