Residence Permit Problem - Lausanne

Hi everyone,

My husband and I visited the bureau d'estranges today to attempt to register in Lausanne. The man who dealt with the registration said that because my husband has a contract with Manpower he is determined as an agency member and cannot be given a residence permit for three months. Manpower does indeed hold his contract though the contract is with a named employer and is a for a year.

Has anyone heard anything like this before? We are mostly concerned as we aren't sure where we will live if we can't start looking for somewhere more permanent to live for another three months.

Any help or advice would be really appreciated!

Thanks very much

Natasha

This sounds odd, as anyone working here has to be registered in some way. Maybe he's thinking Manpower should register him under the short registration scheme.

That doesn't seem right to me though as his contract is for longer than 90 days.

Hi,

Thanks very much for your reply - I think this is what had to be done, as Manpower sent an email yesterday saying they'd register him for 90 days and then beyond that he should be able to get a residence permit. Still having fun trying to work out what to do at the end of our hotel stay!

Thanks very much again - it helps to have someone else say 'uh?!'. And aside from the eeky start, we are so far enjoying ourselves here!

Re: Residence Permit Problem - Lausanne

It's probably a quirk because of Manpower being involved, though I've never heard of it before.

Either find a furnished place for a couple of months or maybe try on this site.

Also have a look down in the Marketplace section of the forum as often there are rooms/flats to rent for short periods.
