Family regroupment when both are working in Switzerland

Hi y'all,


I had a good trawl around ch.ch and also here but wasn't really able to find an answer.


Scenario: EU person working in Switzerland (say, B permit) and non-EU person working in Switzerland (say, L permit), want to get married in Switzerland (or elsewhere). They get married and would like to apply for family reunification for the non-EU person as it is easy in life/work with a B compared to an L (think credit cards, phone plans / non-EU work permit application craziness )



What is the actual procedure in this case? All the sources seem to mention the need for a D Visa which is applicable if they are not already in Switzerland. Does the non-EU person need to leave Switzerland and apply for a D visa from their home country? Is there a 'facilitated' route to 'swap permits' to the EU spouse's permit?



Thanks in advance!

It's quite simple, get married here in Switzerland and apply for family reunification at your local commune/gemeinde providing the documents needed.

No need for visas since both are already in the country.
