Non- EU Marriage visa

Hello everyone,

I would appreciate if someone can please guide me on this process.
I am Non-EU living and working in Switzerland for 2.5 years and holding B -permit.

I have applied for marriage visa for my fiancée ( non EU)- but the process was a bit different. Initially I contacted my local zivilstand office and they sent me the list of documents required to get the process started.

I have personally submitted all the documents on Nov 1st 2020 for both of us (legalised with apostille from our home countries and with German translation) and also paid a fees of 800 chf.

Now, also the verification was done back home (home visit) last week only and I did not hear anything since then.

Any idea how long does it usually take and what would be the further steps as they never asked me a copy of my rental agreement or salary statement. Just curious about the process now.

Hi,

Your fiancee who lives abroad haven't visit the Swiss representation abroad for any short interview ?

No, nothing yet because when we received the verification, one official visited his house and mine too and questioned about us so not sure if it any equivalent or no.

Re: Non- EU Marriage visa

In my case, home verification had been completed in December. I'm yet to hear from Consulate or Swiss Zivilstandsamt.

I think in your case too, they forward that verification report to swiss and then you will hear from Gemeinde regarding how you met and documents related to job and stay. Then they need to say positive to the Zivilstandsamt. At the end, Zivilstandsamt holds the final right to approve the visa

Re: Non- EU Marriage visa

Thank you very much for the details.

But are you sure that gemeinde is involved in this process?. My understanding was after verification Zivilstandsamt will be contacted directly but I could be wrong.

Did you receive such a letter from your corresponding gemeinde ? If I may ask when did you initiate the process?

I wish you are together soon with your love too.
Regards

Re: Non- EU Marriage visa

Yeah Gemeinde is involved. We received letter from Gemeinde asking few documents like health insurance,salary details,employment contract and letter regarding how my fiance met me and how long we were in relationship.They sent some questionnaire too. Then Gemeinde sent the positive reponse copy to us and the Zivilstandamt. But problem is my file yet to be forwarded from India to swiss

I have applied in November in Swiss Consulate Mumbai. If you don't mind, could you share the details you got from zivilstandsamt and what's your home country ?

Re: Non- EU Marriage visa

Thank you very much for confirming that.

Well my home country is India too and his as well.
None of us has applied to the embassy because I contacted Zivilstandsamt about we want to get married here in Switzerland.

They told about the marriage preparation visa ( D visa) and asked for all documents like our birth certificates, bachelor certificate etc. Along with questionnaire for both of us.

I paid 800 chf in Switzerland and they asked me to wait for about 4 months. I submitted all documents on Nov 1st and verification from India was only completed last week.

Re: Non- EU Marriage visa

Thank you. Actually my partner lives in swiss and i reside in india. And we approached through swiss consulate in india. Because we heard that anyways even if we apply directly in swiss,they will forward the application to India for verification.Once i applied for my visa[november], my fiance applied Gesuch in Gemeinde.

So home verification in india[december] is done, Gemeinde verification[december] regarding flat and all are done. We just wait for forwarding application to Swiss and they will invite my fiance for getting details like witness,Translator details.

Re: Non- EU Marriage visa

Thank you very much for all the details again..do you know what was the time gap in your case between verification from Indian side and your fiance contacted by gemeinde for all that info.

I am sure you soon will hear from them about good news they are pretty good here.

It makes sense to me, because if you end up needing social assistance, it is the municipality that pays (at least AFAIK in Kt Bern). I'm not sure if they cover 100% or just the majority, but municipalities are very invested in whether or not you might need social help. When I applied for a C permit, one document required was a letter from the municipal social assistance office saying I'd never had any help from them.

Re: Non- EU Marriage visa

Hey thank you. I wish you the good luck too.

I think verification in india and Gemeinde verification are independent. Gemeinde verification started after 2 weeks of Gesuch application. is your partner lives in switzerland ? in that case your process might be different. You check with zivilstandamt regarding this Gesuch application. As far as i know its mandatory too
