B-Permit: Visa Authorization Extension
My friend will be joining ALSTOM in Baden and they obtained a work permit (B) for him (NON-EU). Thereafter and as per the process, an authorization letter has been sent from the responsible Authority in Switzerland to the Swiss embassy in his home country to allow them issuing an entry visa to him to come to Switzerland on that basis.
This authorization letter is valid until End of March/2008 but unfortunately he will not be able to come to Switzerland by this date because currently he is still outside his home country and can not go there now to have the visa stamp on his passport (and also where he is currently working now there is no Swiss Embassy !).
Is there a possibility for this visa authorization letter to be extended ? If not, what should happen ?
Please can you advise ?
