Help filling Type D visa form

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to fill in the form for the Type D visa for Family Reunification and I've got a few doubts about it.
  • What should I put on Duration of the intended stay?
    My wife got a job for undetermined time so she'll be probably getting a B-permit.
  • What should I put on Probable address if I don't have one yet?
    We haven't been to Geneva yet and we are just starting apartment hunting via Flatfox and the likes.

Thank you very much for your help

Have a bump.

I think for duration of stay you'd put something like "indefinite" as spouse has a permanent contract. Part of getting family reunification approved is for the spouse to prove the accommodation is sufficient for both of you. It might be best to rent a furnished accommodation for a few months and then figure out where you really want to live.

Thank you 3Wishes,

I'm looking forward to seeing if anyone has experience with this in GE or other cantons as well.

I just fired an email to the Canton and now I'm waiting for some clarification from them.

Re: Help filling Type D visa form

I've just heard back from the Canton about this and they told me I needed to submit a reservation or rent contract of at least a month duration:
Il convient de joindre à la demande d'autorisation une copie de la réservation ou du contrat de location pour une durée raisonnable nous permettant d'examiner la demande (un mois).
I was following the dependent permit request document and there is not a mention there about any documents regarding rent.

I've rented an apartment for 2 months and the Canton is informed of the address in the application form but I have not attached the reservation.

Should I contact the Canton or wait and see if they request it from me when processing my application?

Has anyone sent their rent contracts/airbnb reservations when applying for the Type D visa?

Many thanks

In order for family reunification to be approved, you have to prove the place where you're staying is large enough to accommodate the family. A copy of the lease usually works.
