I am a St. Lucia national living in St.Lucia. I am married to a Swiss national. I obtained my Swiss resident card 2 years ago and it expires in 2015. I left Switzerland last year to tend to a family emergency and did not take my card, I was gonna be out for more than 6 months so my husband was worried since I was not there and my health insurance and other documents started arriving. He returned it thinking that it would be somehow on hold. I would like to return but do I need to apply for another Schengen visa to re-enter since I do not have my card?
To obtain a new copy of the card I need to be there in person, they would not give it to my husband.
