Please help: Minimum Salary needed for Spouse Visa application getting approved?

hello,

any PhD student out there who has invited her/her spouse on Dependent visa lately or anyone who has being through this any point of time.....please help!

I want to know:- how much minimum salary per annum or per month one needs to have/show so that his Spouse Visa (Familiennachzug) application has chances of being approved by Migrationsamt des Kanton Zurich ?

Thanks a lot!

hi there,
thanks a lot for the lead...actually my German is not that good to understand the text so easily...
putting my question a bit straighter:::: is a final (take-home) salary (i.e. after taxes) of 4050 CHF/month would be enough to have my Spouse visa application approved ? i pay about 1300 CHF/month as my house rent???

please let me know, thanks!

Re: Please help: Minimum Salary needed for Spouse Visa application getting approved?

Hi

right now I am going through my wife's Visa application.. The application is now with migration office Zürich. They have asked me for some documents
bot did not say anything about the salary..and hope they will not..as they already have my salary slip. They have said when I provide the needed documents they process the visa. so keeping my finger crossed..
by the way I have almost same salary as you..and I am non EU (from India)
I also know a friend of mine got his wife's spouse visa done with lesser salary..so you can expect that your salary won't be a problem..

If I understood the tables in Longbyt's PDF correctly, then assuming no external obligations (e.g. alimony, tax liability back home) the federal minimum you need is 1469 CHF + rent/utilities + health insurance.

The cantons can set their own restrictions higher than that - and I think Zürich does - but CHF4050 should still be more than enough.

Why don't you ask the Migrationsamt though? They're sure to know - and you'll have to interact with them sooner or later anyway...

Re: Please help: Minimum Salary needed for Spouse Visa application getting approved?

I just got my wife's visa confirmation. I make around 4573/month (after taxes). You should ask the migrationsamt. I have found them to be very helpful. Send them an email. They reply in 2/3 days.

Good luck !
