How long did you wait?

If you are non-EU and have recently received approval for a residence permit, or work visa, Please share how long you have been waiting. I have been waiting 4 months and counting, everything I have read says 1-3 months...

Re: How long did you wait?

This one of the most frequent questions asked here. There's a wealth of feedback if you browse the relevant threads some of which are suggested as "similar threads" at the bottom of your thread. For example:
How long should I wait for the visa approval?

How long do I still need to wait? [visa processing non eu]

Bottom line there's no golden rule. Time for it to come through depends on the canton who is processing your application. Three to four months is not unusual even for EU applicants and it can take longer.
