Family reunification got rejected

Family reunification
Hello everyone, recently my family reunification got rejected by Zurich immigration on the basis that my husband salary isnít enough. Even though he is working 100% in restaurant. He have a B permit. The immigration asked if I have work if I come in Switzerland, for that reply I wrote for the moment I donít have but once I get residence permit I will surely work and I have no planning to rely on social help. Plus that we have afriend(Swiss nationalalite)ready to help us financially until. I find job in Swiss if I get residence permit in Swiss.
they rejected our application and wrote we can fight back if we donít accept their decision . I donít know what shoul we do now, please guide us. My husband is finding more work so that we can live together , but because of the coronavirus outbreak it all goes wrong for the moment. Please guide us what can we do further to live together as one family. Our child is also growing day by day and I donít want he miss his father love n connection .

Re: Family reunification got rejected

Just to be clear: is your husband in Switzerland, and are you and your child outside of Switzerland?

Re: Family reunification got rejected

A restaurant job - unless you're a famous chef - isn't paying very well. Your skills are probably also not looking to good to the immigration authorities, and having a friend that might support you financially won't cut it either.

The Corona crisis has also hit restaurants extremely hard, and I can see the situation for your husband getting worse. And while the state throws out money left and right, I doubt that all business will survive, meaning lots of unemployed restaurant staff competing.

Now, not all is hopeless. You might want to learn a profession that is thought-after. Something like a nurse or elderly care - these jobs are always in high demand, not just now. Learning the local language (German, since you state Effretikon) will also be a big plus. A certificed elderly caretaker speaking B1 German with a husband holding a B permit - this would improve your chances by a huge margin. If your husband is getting close to apply for a C permit, I'd wait for that, since that would almost guarantee your visa being approved.

With a proper certification, possibly even authorized by the Swiss embassy, I'd say you got a proper chance. Fighting back right now? I think there are better options.

Hello, as I have France residence permit of France so is it possible to learn a professional course like elderly caretaker in Switzerland ? I have applied for German language course but it also got cancelled because of coronavirus outbreak. Currently I am in Switzerland (visa free stay). So do I need to apply for visa to enter Switzerland once my free visa stay expire? My husband is going to apply for Permit C next year. The immigration office says I can object their decision within one month, and we have to bear expenses fees also. So if I accept their decision and wait until my husband gets permit C , is it possible to apply for family reunion again?
So many questions going in my head and I found valuable answer in this group. Thank you

It does not matter if your husband has B or C, if there is not enough income to support the family than an appeal or new request for a permit for you will fail.

Re: Family reunification got rejected

Edwin is usually right in these things. So your husband's task is to work as hard as he can to make sure he is employed, to try to find ways to earn more. One of these might be to improve his German, if he does not already have a good command. He can also try to improve his marketable skills, perhaps by learning things online.

I understand that you are worried, as you have to face so many questions at once. In my next post, I'm going to try to separate the issues.
