Re: visa processing time

Not sure if I understood your question. But visa for non Europeans in general can take 3 to 6 months. It depends.

My friends au pair took 4 months....

Hope that helps

From the time the permit was granted?

I thought it should be a month max.

You’ve already been approved, so you just have to send your passport to the embassy to get the visa put in. A couple of weeks door to door I’d guess?

Re: visa processing time

A “Visa” is necessary to travel to Switzerland. They can take some time. A “Permit” is necessary to live and work here.

Which are you asking about?

I’m assuming he’s had the permit approved ... and now needs the D visa in his passport to travel here.

From my point of view it was already very clearly, unambiguously, and accurately stated in the initial post.

Re: visa processing time

The most efficient way, it’s to write the consular or migratory authority and ask them.... here you gonna get guesses...

You´re not the only one, but due to Covid19 and the upcoming holiday season it is fairly difficult to say.

Re: visa processing time

I understand and I’m sorry for not be able to wear your shoes.
I have some tenants from South America and when they got their permit it was not required to have a visa to come here. However, every country and region have a singularity, that’s why I told you that maybe would be easier to write to the authorities/migration. Don’t worry because they won’t make your life miserable. The things here are very service/customer oriented. :-)

Best regards

Re: visa processing time

For family reunification it takes about 12 weeks in the busy cantons. If you received any sort of confirmation by the canton it might mean the authorisation to deliver the visa hasn't been issued to the embassy of your region.

Contact the cantonal authorities and explain to them you need them to authorise the embassy to give you a visa type D. That's how it worked for me (I received the appointment for the permit in Geneva before I was issued with a visa to enter Switzerland for family reunification purposes).
