I am in a long-distance relationship with my girlfriend.
We know that marriage would be the simplest solution, but we would prefer to live together for a longer period before we take this step.
Therefore, we are looking for our possibilities to live together (preferably in Switzerland).
How likely/feasible are the following options we read about:
- A work visa for Switzerland as an archivist.
- The trainee exchange agreement between the US and Switzerland.
Or does someone has another idea? Financially there shouldn't be issues (My salary is enough to support an average lifestyle for two people in Switzerland).
She (26) is currently finishing her two Masters in History/Library Science in the USA (She wants to be an archivist and has currently 1 year of experience in this field). She speaks German fluently (C1).
I (24) am currently working full-time as a Software Engineer working for one of the "Big Five" in Switzerland. I am also doing a part-time master's in CS. Currently, I have 3 years of experience as a Software Engineer.
She is American. Her grandfather was German, but her mother just had an American citizenship. She already lived in German-speaking countries for more than a year.
I am German with a residential permit for Switzerland. I could apply for the Swiss citizenship right now. I lived in the US for a bit less than a year.
We would like to live together after her education (~ 1 year).
