Return visa during Permit B application

Hi all

I arrived in Lausanne 6 weeks back and had applied for my B Permit right after arrival. I haven't received it yet.

I have to be in Imperial College, London on September 22 for a conference. Checking the British Visa site tells me that 10 days is a safe margin for getting the UK visa.

So that is the situation. I have two options: Wait for the permit to arrive and then go for the UK visa, or PAY and apply for a return Swiss visa and then go for the UK visa immediately. Which would be a more reasonable option?

I failed to mention, I am a student, and would avoid any additional payment, whatsoever.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Return visa during Permit B application

Since I did not receive any replies, I am reposing my question differently - bear with me.

How long does the processing of a B permit application take? Its already been 6 weeks since I applied. Should I be concerned considering the length of processing time?

Thanks!

Depends on your Canton. In Vaud you can wait three to four months for your B permit to be processed.

Option 2. You have no guarantees with option 1.

Re: Return visa during Permit B application

The authority do not keep your passport for application of residence permit, why don't you just go ahead to apply for a UK visa?????

I waited for my residence permit for 7 months in Vaud and during that 7 months, I had no problem go in or out Switzerland...

Good luck!
