Non EU with Swiss citizen unmarried partner move to St. Gallen

Hi everyone, I hope this post finds you well.

I need all the information about how to move and live with my girlfriend in Switzerland, but except for getting married.
She is living in St. Gallen and she's working there as well, we've been together for almost 3 years we have been traveling in Europe, Asia, and North Africa but now she's back in Switzerland and I want to go live with her. Thanks everyone in advance.

P.S. I'm not a citizen of the EU

Re: Non EU with Swiss citizen unmarried partner move to St. Gallen

Welcome to the forum.

Your girlfriend needs to check with her cantonal migration office whether the concubine permit it issued in that canton. This is a permit for unmarried couples, but not all cantons issue it. If it's available then she'll need to agree to be financially responsible for you for 5 years.

If that permit is not available and you don't want to get married then the only way would be for a Swiss employer to get a permit on your behalf. The non-EU hiring criteria is outlined here.

If that's not possible for you either, then there's no way to move here except to get married.
