Hello CH

I just wanted to say hi.
I arrived a few days ago, in Amriswil, Thurgau.
Anyway, my german knowledge is not so good, I finished only A1 in my country, few years ago, and only have spoken german with my wife, and several times when I am alone at the store, or in the streets, with neighbours here in CH.

I worked as web developer (mostly backend, php, but done some front end work, html, css, javascript, jquery, ajax, etc), that is I am still working, for my prevoius employer, only this time remotely, without any contract, until I can find a job here.
I applied for B visum (my wife has C visa) and after that I should find a company here, which will open my work permit (as I have been informed).

If anyone knows what is the procedure now, is there any problems with this approach, does the companies really want to help you, and open work permit when you have got B visa...

Thank you in advance for any reply or help!

Aleksandar

Re: Hello CH

Hello.
If your wife is already living here on a C-permit then in theory you should be granted a 5 year B-permit which is renewable. This is what I have seen normally happens for someone who lives here already and wants to bring a family member here.
The B-permit then allows you to live here and work here.

Re: Hello CH

Hi plumtree,

Yes, my wife already lived here, she was born in CH, but never applied for their passport, she didn't needed one.
That is what she said to me, that i will have the same right as her, but only that I will have to find an employer who will open that some kind of work permit, and after that I will be able to work wherever I want.
But, I sure hope that I can find a job as a web developer...

Re: Hello CH

On the whole I think it is probably easier to find work if you already have a permit, as it means the employer doesn't have to order one for you.

Re: Hello CH

Normally, your residence permit (b permit) is also a work permit. It will say on it if you have the right to work or not.

Re: Hello CH

@plumtree
Yes, I also assumed that it would be like that...

Thank you!


@Island Monkey
We are travelling this friday, and they said that they will call me on that interview (or what was the name) when we return from Serbia, and then I will get my ausweis.
They mentioned that I will have to take some kind of language test, so that they will be able to suggest the language level from which I will have to start.
We'll see, in a couple of weeks.
