How long does the B permit normally take to process?

Quick question, I just got married to my Swiss wife and I am Italian. How long does the B permit normally take to process? The slower the better, hopefully.

Thank you

If you're in Geneva or Vaud, it's anyone's guess. Elsewhere 8-12 weeks seems standard depending on whether all the necessary paperwork was turned in and is in order. Allow for continued delays due to backlogs from when the country was basically shut down.

If you want to live and work here (i.e. for more than 90 days) then you will need a permit. If you don't have that plan yet, then simply don't apply for a permit until you are ready. Plenty of people are married and live in separate countries for various reasons.

I struggle to understand.... if you don't want a B-permit, don't move here and apply for one!

Why do you want it to take a long time?
