permit question

Hi,

I am a student from the Netherlands and due to corona my master's is online. My boyfriend lives in Switzerland and I would like to spend there more than three months.. But i am aware that you need a kind of permit to be here more than three months. The only thing I want is to be with him and do my studies online. I am not looking for a job there yet, I want to when I finish my master. I don't know what to do in this situation, because it is quite rare. I can look for a parttime job, but is really hard to pay my insurance because I am a student. Are there any possibilities?

Thanks in advance

Re: permit question

Hi

Which Canton does your boyfriend live in?

Assuming that you are a citizen of the Netherlands, you could accept a part-time employment, register for a school (with minimum lessons to be taken per week, language school might be sufficient) or - if your relationship lasts for a longer period already and you have proof of a stable and long-term relationship - apply for a partner's non-employment visa. For the school or partner permit your partner would need to guarantee for costs aristing from your stay and that he himself has sufficient financial means, e.g. no social contrubition payments or debt enforcements.

Just keep in mind that that has to be for the next 5 years. Not all Kantons offer a so called concubine permit.

Re: permit question

If you came and just stayed here for more than three months, who's going to know? Just saying.

Re: permit question

Permit aside, if you live here and have a permit, you have to pay expensive health insurance.

It might be better to split your time 50/50. 1 month here, 1 month at home & repeat... or similar.

Or 3 months here, 1 day at home and repeat?
