Waiting for Work Permit-L but the Residence Permit Ends Soon

Hi everybody,

I checked almost all the threads on the forum so far and I could not find the answer that I am looking for.

I am a non-EU and came to CH for studying 3 years ago. Lastly I extended my residence permit for 6 months more to find a job. Fortunately I found one and I signed the contract in December. And all the documents to get the work permit has been sent at the beginning of January.

The problem is that my residence permit ends in the middle of February and I know that it takes 6-8 weeks to get the work permit which then would be after February.

Last week I applied to Kreisburo for an extension of my L-permit and I stated that I signed a contract so that the work permit is in process. However, today in the letter that I got from Migrationsamt it says that I cannot extend my permit anymore and I should leave the country by the end of my resident permit therefore wait for the answer regarding the work permit outside of CH.

Do you have any recommendations for this issue? I would be very happy to hear your answers.

In my case, the work permit process took almost 4 months after the expiry of my B student permit. I was in CH during that 4 months.
