Work in Geneva, life in Nyon


I'm a non-EU citizen married to a EU citizen with a job in Genève. My wife is looking to start working around mid-October. We are thinking of living in Nyon so I can look for a job in either Lausanne or Genève.

I was reading this post https://www.englishforum.ch/permits-...processed.html so I started going through the law provided by Medea: https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...index.html#a12

Although I couldn't find anything stating otherwise, I'm wondering: is it feasible for us to settle in Nyon while she is working in a different canton? Could that affect our application for family reunification?

Thank you very much everyone!

Re: Work in Geneva, life in Nyon

Works bust fine if your wife is EU.
I’m eu, work in geneva and live in Nyon.
Wife is non-eu, family reunification is easy, just need to get a visa to enter and declare your arrival at the commune.

You will like Nyon!

Re: Work in Geneva, life in Nyon

As an EU national it's pretty easy for her and you. Also a lot of people who work in Geneva live in Vaud; both cantons are used to dealing with these sort of things. It would be different if you were both non-EU nationals.
