I have a question pertaining to the residence permit/long-stay visa.So, I will be going to Switzerland for 5 months & have been issued with a Visa 'D' (multiple entry) for that purpose.
From what I understand on Switzerland's process, the visa grants me entry & is a prerequisite of sorts for the Residence Permit. I understand that we can travel with the residence permit. However, how about the time while it's processing (i.e. from my reporting to the Cantonal authorities to my receiving said permit).
If I wish to leave Switzerland (to other Schengen/Non-schengen) am I allowed to do so? seeing that I haven't had my residence permit yet though the visa 'D' is multiple entry. Because at that time the visa would not have been 'superseded' by the residence permit seeing that I have not gotten it.
Edit: I'm a non-EU national and I need a visa for practically every country
