(Non EU) Switzerland Marriage Visa Need Help!

Hallo...

I applied marriage visa at Switzerland embassy in Jakarta on 8 June 2020. In the end of June 2020 Civil office Fribourg call my Fiance (He is Swiss citizen) interview him by phone & ask some photos of us, done send by email. In the middle of July Spomi & the municipality send some forms andthen few days later my fiance send it back include some documents.

In August & September we dont hear any news.

In the end October Swiss embassy in Jakarta send me email to come for the interview in 16 November (My fiance got interview too in the same day like me at Civil office Fribourg).

Its already 6 months . How much longer do we have to wait for the process? Do you have same experience? And I need your advice. Thankyou

Swiss Embassy says up to 12 weeks. But that was before Covid.

Expect that you have to submit a new "Surat Keterangan Catatan Kepolisian"

I email Swiss embassy about the new "SKCK" & they told me no need to do that & they suggest to contact the Civil office. Ofcourse my fiance did it by email & call them since early december & before holiday but nothing. He will contact them again after holiday.

We are sad because this process is too long & we cant get any information from Civil office.

Hi, did they send any person to verify your documents in your home country.

I dont know. but i submit official & legal documents with sticker stamps from ministry foreign affairs & ministry law & human rights. so thats enough for swiss embassy to verify it. And I never heard about they send people to check documents.

In India, they send someone for verification of documents even after legalisation. I have applied my visa in 5th november. I got verification on december 1st week. After that no news yet

This process after you arrive in Switzerland. You come together to Civil office with your partner to decide it.
