Another type of B permit?

Hello all, as I read from Sticky there are three types of B permits as follow:

-----

B PERMITS

B PERMIT (Ausländerausweis)
LONG-TERM WORK PERMIT. SUBJECT TO QUOTA (Aufenthaltbewilligung mit Erwerbstätigkeit)
Economic interests
Employee qualifications
Priority for Swiss and European Union workers
Compliance with local employment conditions
Availability of quota
Renewable until granting of settlement C permit after 10 years (USA + Canada 5 years)

B PERMIT
ANNUAL SHORT-TERM WORK PERMIT. SUBJECT TO QUOTA (Kurzaufenthaltbewilligung)
Important projects
Career plan
International joint programmes
Sportspersons
Up to 3 years,even a maximum of 6 years in certain cases

RESIDENTS' B PERMIT (Aufenthaltbewilligung im Rahmen des Familiennachzugs)
LONG-TERM RESIDENCE PERMIT. NOT SUBJECT TO QUOTA
Permit delivered for family dependents.
Does not include work permission - this must be applied for separately (no quotas; indigenous priority does not apply anymore since 1.1.08)
Renewable
Possibility of conversion into C Permit

-----

My question is, I'm now holding a B permit with a different name, which i believe it's residents' B permit, however it says ''familiennachzug mit erwerbstätigkeit'', which is with work permission.

A little background information, I'm non EU and I married a swiss guy.

So I guess there actually are residents' B permits with work permission?

Re: Another type of B permit?

Short answer: yes!

This is the same permit that I have-I converted from the dreaded student B permit to the residence B permit when I married my Swiss husband. So there are definitely dependent B permits that allow work. My understanding is that this is a "non-restricted" B permit (it counts towards the C permit and is not tied to any specific job, unlike the student B permit).

Great! then I guess the sticky needs an update?
From my understanding when you looked for a job with this permit your employer doesn't have to apply for anything else for you right?

Re: Another type of B permit?

Technically, the sticky is correct, since there is not a second document or card that states you have permission to work-work status is always included in the residence permit (confusing I know). It could be edited to read "does not automatically include work permission" though!

And, yes, any potential employer would not have to apply for your permit. This information should be included in your resume.

Re: Another type of B permit?

No, anyone who is a dependent of an EU B-permit holder can also work. I'm not sure about non-EU.

One example might be (though I'm not sure) that a spouse dependent on a student B permit would not have automatic permission to work (since the student doesn't have unrestricted work permission either) but could also be granted a B residence permit.

Re: Another type of B permit?

Thanks for the information in this thread. I just want to be certain I understand:

1. Mine is B permit with "familiennachzug mit erwerbstatigkeit"
2. The difference is I'm non EU, married to non EU, and
3. I haven't yet worked in Switzerland

Based on what I've read here and in the Stickies, this means I can apply for work here and the company does not need to do additional applications - is that correct?

Yes. And be sure to emphasize the type of permit you have on both your CV and your cover letter to the employer knows they don't need to jump through any hoops.

Re: Another type of B permit?

Thank you for such good information!

I´m a non EU married to an EU with work permit (B) and I just got my visa with work permit (the same visa that you have).

I have heard about some benefits included with this visa, like: intensive language course, berufberatungs, interim, etc.

Any of you have idea of that?

Send you big regards and all the best in Switzerland

When you say benefits, do you mean "free" ??

You can of course attend an intensive language course whilst living here on your residence permit, but you'll have to pay for it.

Re: Another type of B permit?

The only advantage is that although you're a non-EU national any employer would not have to go through the non-EU hiring rules to employ you as you now have permission to work.

The rest is rubbish. If you want to do a language course you'll have to pay for it, the State won't. No idea what the other things mentioned are, but you'll have to pay for them yourself too if they involve costs.
