Based on the applicable legislation on family reunification, a foreign citizen holding a permit can apply for a permit in favor of his family, in particular for his spouse and his minor children, in order for them to live in Switzerland with him. In this context, it is possible to apply for several types of permits depending notably on the planned length of the family’s stay in Switzerland. In addition, a permit for family reunification can only be obtained under certain conditions. Such conditions vary depending on the nationality of the foreign citizen (e.g. European citizens and non-European citizens) and the purpose of the stay in Switzerland (family reunification in favor of the spouse, family reunification in favor of the minor children, stay for the preparation of a wedding,…).
