Family Reunion

Me and my wife got married last febuary in Wattwil canton St. Gallen, after the ceremony my wife was asked whether she would like to apply for Family Reunion for me and she gladly said yes, then they took our marriage Certificate and gave her other forms to fill, so after she had filled those forms they took them and gave us only Family Booklet.
Then we were told that they will forward the whole documents to the other respective department to handle the Family Reunion matter.
My question now is, Why uptil now we have not received any message from them? and my wife had been there twice and they just told her to wait for their message.
Is there anything behind it or is it the sitaution at the Moment? Please if anyone knows anything about this condition, Please i would be glad to read your text. Thanks

Re: Family Reunion

Many administrative things have slowed due to the virus situation. People working from home or simply furloughed and not working at all.

It is going to take some time to clear out the backlog. Be patient.

Re: Family Reunion

It seems that an appropriate appartement size is required (which makes sense).
Then what is appropriate is in your case I dont know.

I guess it also depends on the age of the children. While a 5 year old can share a room it might not be ideal for lets say a 16 year old.

I think the best is to contact the relevant authority to get clarification on what is expected.

Re: Family Reunion

Our children are 4.
The first one is 21 years old,
While the second is 14ys old,
The third is 6yrs and the last is 2yrs.
The big one is living in one room, then 2 are sharing one room, the last one is living in my wife's room.
Could this condition be acceptable or must we go for any apartment above 5 rooms?

Re: Family Reunion

Like I said it might be best to contact the relevant authority.

Personally I think it sounds a little tight from a comfort point of view, but thats just my humble opinion which is completley irrelevant in this case

Are any of you Swiss?

The rules are different if so.

Work/Family Reunion

I am not an EU citizen, but am holding a 5 years resident permit from Italy.
I had a Swiss farmer friend that lives in fribourg and he told me to come and start Working for him.
So my question is, what type of document does he need to provide for me?

I could be wrong but Resident Permit does not mean that you will be treated as a EU Citizen. Only a EU Passport works. So you will be treated as Non-EU and same rules will apply.

Re: Work

Unless you apply for family reunification in Switzerland, right now an Italian permit or the Swiss wife will not help you much.

You could search what possibilities there are for seasonal workers? Im sure there must be some clause for people who come here to help with harvests, during ski season etc?

Re: Work

Although I suspect the rules are somewhat different to this for farm workers this does show how difficult it can be to get a permit.

https://www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home...zulassung.html

You can't get a permit yourself, he would have to apply for one for you and meet whatever the conditions are for getting said permit.

Unless your wife is prepared to move to Switzerland and apply for a family reunification permit for you (she has to prove she can support you as her dependent and that the accommodation is big enough for both of you to get one) there's nothing in your situation which will help you.
