Dependant visa

Hi,
I could not find the answer on the forum..sorry if it has been answered somewhere
I am a non EU. I have applied for my husband's dependent visa at the home country on 5th of jan. Additionally (after letter from immigration)I did submit all the required switzerland documents,house contract etc to the swiss immigration office last week. Does anyone know how much time it takes after this?
I am on a annual B permit and the renewal is due in april end.
Assuming he gets the visa end of this month(feb end) Would my husband get a 3 months visa (as that's the usual tenure for the visa)
In short: can someone get a 3 month visa , even if the main person's permit is valid for next 2 months(will get renewed, hopefully)..how does this work?
Thanks

Re: Dependant visa

Your post is really confusing.

Maybe you can direct your question to the swiss consulate general in your husband's current home country ?

I think his dependent permit will be dated to match yours...so if you only have 2-3 months on your permit, then his will be issued with dates to match.

Are you going to renew your permit ?

The dependent permit took about one month for us, once all the paperwork was in order. Then we had to go to the consulate general in the nominated country to pick it up.

My advice is to email the swiss consulate general that you nominated on your application form, providing all your husband's details, and his personal contact information (email, mobile, home phone, current address) and politely ask them to contact you by phone or email as soon as the permit is approved)...this will speed things up slightly as they won't have to write you a letter telling you your permission has arrived.

The 'permission' is given electronically to the consulate general office - it arrives on the internal communications system, then they have to contact you to tell you 'it is here'...then you go to the consulate general, and they issue you an 'entry permit' for Switzerland.

Once he arrives, he has to register in your local Gemeinde as a resident, and fill in more forms, and pay more money, and ask them to issue you a 'confirmation' that you are registered too, that's handy to have...

The actual 'L dependent' permit will take another month or so after that - by the time you do that, your permits will all be due for renewal...

Has your renewal gone in from your employer yet ? That should be in progress already if you are due to renew in the next month or two...

Ok will try the email..I have personally been to the immigration office and they said they will post me once it arrives. I plan to check once again sometime next week, i doubt if they entertain calls or emails..

I was aware that he has to register in the local Gemeinde; once he is here. My question was more on the entry visa period.Usually the visa period is 3 months. But since my permit is expiring(less than 3 months from now) will this entry visa be 3 months or less??This info would be handy for us to plan lot of things, his notice period etc etc.

No not yet, but you are right they usually do it when the permit expiry is nearing 60 days,there is some rule (zurich kanton,not sure about other kantons) that says renewal not before 60 days of expiry.my permit expires in April end,so we still have sometime,i was intending to start my renewal a little later,once my husband's visa is through.. as they might want original B permit etc. Once he is here we can peacefully start the renewal process together..by paying again
