Type D visa for Switzerland - urgent help needed


I am new in CH and waiting for my residence permit and identity card at the moment. As I need to travel to a Schengen country for two weeks, I applied for an entry visa at the Migrationsamt and received a Visa Valid for Switzerland with visa being Type D and valid until end of May.

I was told that this Type D visa is for 5 days which means that I have to come back to CH in between as I need to stay at this Schen country for 10 days.

Has anyone had the same problem? Did you have to come back in 5 days with such a Type D visa valid for CH and given by Migrationsamt ?

Thanks in advance...

As far as I know the D type visa will have a 'valid for' where it will be suisse which means it is meant for Swiss only .
The D entry visa allows you to transit via the schengen states to get to your destination but not stay .
In your case the immigration office should give a D+ C type visa which would allow you to travel to other schengen states as well.
