Hello from Zurich!

Hi Everyone,

I have been looking through this forum for many years, contemplating a transfer to CH. It finally happened - now I am happily employed in Zurich and burdened will all the paperwork that entails.

I am from the US, so I got an L-permit without any second thoughts being given to it. This causes a lot of headaches, and even though my contract is permanent, my question to HR about appealing the decision got me the Swiss-German equivalent of "Bless your heart" that I am more used to in State-side.

Now that I am official, I thought I would join and say "Hi!" Hopefully, I can help (and I also have a billion questions - to be asked after I get through the Search function).

Best of luck to you all and glad we're all in this together!

Welcome to Zurich! You're stuck with that L permit for the next two years, so good luck. However, take heart, several of us have survived the L years

Hope you have a smooth transition. This is a beautiful, amazing country to live in!
