gay married in swiss waiting for D permit to go to Swiss.

Hello.

First of all.thanks for the owner of the website ,good website for us..

I am thai,from thailand. I ve applied the visa to go to get married in Genf. i have applied already 2 months,after the canton get all the document from the Bangkok embassy. After the date the I finished interview in the embassy they said after 2 months you bring the passport to check the answer for the visa. they stamped on my passport that i am asking for D Visa.

I went to the embassy yesterday they still no answer. my partner went to the office yesterday as well they still say on the computer say i will send you a letter than some the one working on it said next we will send you a letter but we really dont know what sort of the letter we will get it next week.

some one told me they have waited almost a year to get the visa.
I went to Uk 2 times and went for the business in france once. i met him in France ,i went his home several times. he visited me in bkk once. we been know each other one than a year now.

Is it difficult to get a visa? if they refuse the visa what should we do ? can we appeal ?

i really know that the canton they are working hard for all of us that is why it takes long time.

any have experience pls recommend ..


thanks

Re: gay married in swiss waiting for D permit to go to Swiss.

For same sex couples, I believe the union is termed Eingetragene Partnerschaft ( French Partenariat enregistré fédéral ) for Federally Registered Partnership. This link gives some information though not authoritative, and probably dated. There is a Wiki entry too.

The BFM has a PDF file here.

Your Swiss parner might wish to reach the Pink Cross for advice too. There is a thread here as well with links to eg. www.360.ch

Hope this will assist you in some small way. Good luck.

[QUOTE=comedy;440179] Is it difficult to get a visa? if they refuse the visa what should we do ? can we appeal ? i really know that the canton they are working hard for all of us that is why it takes long time. [QUOTE]

Based on my personal experience, it is possible to appeal a visa denial (year 2003, student visa, non-EU). My case might be different but just so you know that it is generally possible to appeal.
They gave me 10 working days to appeal (may be variable but they will explicitly mention this on the "denied visa" letter from the embassy) and re-submit documents that would strengthen my "case". The reasons for denial were also enumerated, so it was also clear what additional documents they want to have in the appeal.
Btw, after about 2 weeks from re-submitting documents, I was informed that the decision was reversed and that my visa was approved.

Hi Comedy! I got my D visa after 4 months upon submitting all the documents so just hang in there and wait patiently. I hope they won't deny your visa. I'm wishing u all the luck!

Congratulation for the upcoming wedding!

Re: gay married in swiss waiting for D permit to go to Swiss.

My partner and I met early last year. This past January we decided to get "married" or "in a legal partnership" - which ever term you prefer. We applied in Zürich in person with all of the necessary documents and received the ok on the spot. We chose the date and were married a month later. Since then I've received my B permit and we are living in our happily ever after. What I found that seemed to make the process go smoothly was researching and having all of the necessary documents ready (and multiple copies). Applying in person helped as well I'm sure.

Of course as I've learned here - everything does vary canton to canton. But don't loose hope -- I'm sure everything will be ok in the long run.

Best of luck!
