Financial Requirements For Family Reunification/Dependent Visa (Non-EU)

Hi there!

So I've been reading multiple threads here in English Forum and I have a couple of questions and it would be great if anyone could please confirm them?

1. The Swiss Embassy has confirmed that my husband can apply for a dependent visa (Type D) with me in order for us to enter together in Switzerland. One of the requirements listed is "bank statements" and proof of financial status. Is the salary sufficient for this (paid PhD student; gross at 49,000 CHF) or do I need to prepare an additional 20,000 CHF (Neuchatel canton rules) for my husband?

1A. given that my gross salary is 49,000 CHF, is this not sufficient to cover the 20,000 CHF requirement per person?

2. In order to renew my husband's residence permit (B) yearly, do I need to provide 20,000 CHF? Is this necessary?

I am reading multiple threads here and I didn't realise the "financial requirements" for Non-EU and their Non-EU spouses were very excessive. Any clarification would be much appreciated!

Where are you getting that 20,000 figure from? I see nothing in the link Belgianmum provided in your other thread

https://www.englishforum.ch/permits-...neuchatel.html

which mentions any figures. It just says sufficient finances.

It's in the Neuchatel canton website. It's in French but it was there, 20,000 per year for the living cost. It's what they compute for the living cost they set per person

Re: Financial Requirements For Family Reunification/Dependent Visa (Non-EU)

I fail to see the need for this topic given your other one, you earn 70K before taxes, this is enough for a couple, and I aso have no clue where your 20K number comes from. (ain't that the deposit/guarantee for visitors from some places to be certain they return and can handle some medical costs here if needed, thus making it unrelated to a family reunification)

Thanks for this. I just spoke to another PhD student and they mentioned the Neuchatel canton asked them to block off 20k for the spouse in a Swiss bank for "financial reasons". I just wanted to check if this was just a special case or if cantons really asked for this blocked off in an account.

I must be going over my head and overanalysing (my worst habit, I admit). I found a similar one in the Neuchatel canton website, with the exact same text but in French.

For me, I just rather have all my bases covered than to go there shocked or unprepared.

"Financial affidavit with a bank attesting to sufficient financial resources to cover the costs of a stay for studies in Switzerland (minimum amount of equivalent CHF 20,000 for a full academic year)"

That is referring to students coming here to study at uni, nothing to do with family reunification.
