I know someone who was unemployed (receiving RAV) and they didn't get a C-Permit after 5 years, they renewed their B-Permit for one year. They are under the impression they would get a C-Permit if they are in full in gainful employment once the new 12 month B-Permit comes up for renewal.

PS: This is in Zug.
so in case my permit is B 5 year than it is possible it will be extended for same correct? or it just might be extended for 1 year...as EU-7 it is most likely I would not get C automatically unless I apply for it etc. EU-7 right to it (just like EU-17) is being discussed for last 2 as per the BFM publication.

I would say so yes. I don't see anyone getting kicked out as long as they have means of supporting themselves (e.g. RAV)

As to what type of permit I don't know for sure but I would say you would get the same as what you had before.

Re: Getting a C Permit (EU citizen)

My B-permit (EU - 5 year) expires at the end of the month, and having not heard anything from my canton (BL) I decided to call them and investigate.

So the process seems to be as follows

1. You send your soon to expire B-permit together with a letter confirming your employment to the Baselland AMT by registered post
2. They will then arrange an appointment at their offices, and if all goes well you will get your C-permit

So basically there is little consistency, each canton does it differently

I think you're talking about the B-permit, that should be fine to produce the employment letter when you get to Switzerland. I was referring to the C-permit which you obtain after 5 years on a B-permit (and assuming you're an EU national)

Re: Getting a C Permit (EU citizen)

OK, I'm from the EU and I can say what Zürich required from me for a C.

1. Letter from employer confirming continuous employment.

2. Confirmation from the "Betreibungsamt" that I have no unpaid debts against me.

3. Confirmation from the "Sozialhilfe" that I've not needed any social assistance (money) in the last 3 years.

My sheet was clean on the last 2 so I've no idea what affect it will have should you have contested debts or have needed social assistance in the last 3 years.

Re: Getting a C Permit (EU citizen)

Just a thought: Perhaps Castro or Slaphead can move the posts from Ricardo3742 to a more appropriate (i.e. B-permit) thread so as not to totally confuse future readers of this thread (C-permit)?

Re: Getting a C Permit (EU citizen)

It has already been past the expiration date and we were just told by Gemeinde that we need to wait until permits will be extended. Not a big deal here but it might be an issue once you go across the border when the workedup officer might want be pain in the ass.

What nationality are you? It makes a difference so nobody can give you an answer without that information.
Even then it would mostly likely only be a guess as the only people who can give you a definitive answer will be the commune or cantonal migration office.

If you don't have a job and are not looking for one, you'll probably get another B assuming you meet the criteria and can prove you have sufficient funds to support yourself. A C-permit is unlikely as you're not "contributing" to the economy (a phrase I saw recently tossed about with respect to renewals). If you're non-EU then even a renewed B might be a stretch, depending on your circumstances. Perhaps you could share just a little more information so we can help point you in the right direction?

The odds of somebody having been in your situation in Geneva and on EF are pretty low I should imagine. It's not a common situation to be in.
Are you married, living with a partner, single parent or what?

There are so many variables that it's impossible to say what could happen without a lot more information.

Re: Getting a C Permit (EU citizen)

A classmate of mine (Italian, living in Vaud) got her C automatically without any further questions asked (just the renewal form) being on RAV and having a sizable debt to pay.

1. Depends on the canton
2. Equally so, depends on which EU country you come from - EU 15 (or 17) get C automatically after 5 years on B and without any questions asked (at least in Vaud)

thank you for your answer,yes it would be my case.Anyway in the renewal form they ask for the name of the employer(ue4-1-formulaire-ue).I don't have choice in either case, I have to take care of my baby.No places in creches.
