Lawyer to defend foreigners in Geneva

Foreigners’ law is an area of law that defines the conditions under which people who do not have Swiss nationality may be allowed to live and work in Switzerland.

This branch of law defines, among other things, the criteria that any person applying for a visa to enter Switzerland must meet. These criteria vary, of course, depending on the nature and duration of the intended stay, as the requirements for obtaining a work visa are more numerous than for a simple tourist visa.

In addition, the law on foreigners defines the different types of residence permits that can be issued to immigrants, the conditions under which these residence permits can be renewed, as well as the conditions that every foreigner must meet in order to obtain a residence status. It may make more favourable provisions if the person wishing to enter Switzerland has skills that enable him or her to make a high level of contribution or if he or she has undeniable artistic talents. Finally, the law on foreigners defines the conditions under which any foreigner who is exposed to danger in his or her country may benefit from the right of asylum.

A foreigners’ lawyer can, for example, defend the interests of any foreigner who has difficulty in having his or her residence permit renewed. Thus, if a foreigner is the subject of a deportation decision issued under irregular conditions, the foreigners’ lawyer will be able to request the annulment of this decision on the grounds of excess of power.
