Well i hope that in the end we pass the watchful eyes of the Schweizermacher, you have to see this movie if you come across it by the way. Plus the cost of speedposting it twice with the risk of it getting lost almost makes up for a ticket. although we also did the going back Rahip Hi, I had to come here to let some "steam" out. I have a Swiss fiance who lives in kanton Thurgau and we want to get married next summer.Im staying in Switzerland now so we are trying to get all the permits in order.Why can't you enter and be on a tourist visa and just be approved from there?What's the difference, and why the hell does the government get to tell us where and how we can be together?!Once you go there two or three times they usually become humane.DON'T go to immigration or Auslnderpolizei, those folks are payed to keep you out.
Go to the Gemeinde, fill out two forms, give them a passport copy and that's it!I received a letter basically saying that the documents are useless and that I should send them back to get the proper stamps on it.Two calls and days later it turns out that the responsible person simply hasn't checked anything but just sent it back to me.Cheers Maria As has been mentioned, it can take 3 - 4 months to get the visa. So it's always best to inquire with the canton & gemeinde well in advance to find out what is required.Keep in mind that the cantonal requirements vary, depending on your current citizenship. If you are running up against a deadline (flight arrangements, marriage date) you should inquire as to the status of your visa.
