The Goethe Institut offers exams (and certificates) at various levels. These are widely recognised: http://www.goethe.de/lrn/prj/pba/bes/enindex.htm

Re: B Permit to C Permit - Zertifikat START DEUTSCH 2 in Niveau

I'm from an EU country (not Germany/Austria) and I received the application today. It says I must provide the "Start Deutsch 2 (A2) Zertifikat".

Is this a new requirement for EU citizens? Is there a way around this? I lived about 8 years in Germany before moving to Switzerland.

Thnx

It's a new requirement for anyone, EU or not, who wants a C permit in Zurich canton. And no, no way around it.

Surely you should be fine if you lived in Germany for eight years?

At least they speak German in Germany.

I can confirm that for my renewal after 5 years I was given a B again... all because I had not taken the test. I guess I have 5 years more to take it.

As far as being integrated, I could not be more if I tried, so I think they are just being finickety because of the vote on foreigners.

I wonder what the situation will be 5 years from now.

You can re-apply for C as soon as you meet the German requirements. No need to wait 5 years.

Re: B Permit to C - Zertifikat START DEUTSCH 2 in Niveau [language proficiency requir

My husband lives in Switzerland 4 years, I came here first time almost 2 years ago, first with the student visa for 1 year and then have got visa to get married, so I have B permit only for 5 months. My husband wants to get C Permit next year. I've heard that the whole family should apply for C Permit together, but because I live here not so long, would it be possible if he do it alone?

Not for all EU countries, some countries have reciprocal arrangements and then you do not need to do a language test. I cannot remember the countries but you can for sure find it on this forum.
I did not have to give any proof of language proficiency when I applied for my C permit (and got it)

Yes, he can apply on his own.
