Re: C permit without A2 Non-EU

Thanks TobiasM for information.

It is interesting to know that the language requirement is not consistent with http://www.ma.zh.ch/internet/sicherh...ewilligung.pdf. I guess it depends on the place you live and apply for permit C.

In this case, does anybody know the minimum level of german langauge proficiency needed if one lives Oerlikon area? Is A2 level with certificate like (http://www.allegra-sprachenzentrum.c...elcExam_A2.pdf) is sufficient?

Re: C permit without A2 Non-EU

I think, now I better understand the requirement for German language proficiency for Zurich.

There are two clauses.

1. " Ist der Gesuchsteller verheiratet und stellen nicht beide Ehegatten ein Gesuch um vorzeitige
Erteilung einer Niederlassungsbewilligung, wird vom Ehepartner des Gesuchstellers ein Zertifikat
verlangt, das ihm bescheinigt, die deutsche Sprache in Niveau A2 (TELC, Goethe oder
ÖSD-Zertifikat sowie Diplome des allegra Sprachzentrums) zu beherrschen. Zudem wird
auch vom Ehepartner des Gesuchstellers ein aktueller Betreibungsregisterauszug der
Wohngemeinden der letzten drei Jahre und eine Bestätigung der Sozialhilfebehörde, dass
er nie von der Sozialhilfe unterstützt werden musste, eingefordert. Schliesslich wird ein
Strafregisterauszug verlangt.
"

As I understood this clause, when the applicant is alone and not applying for spouse for early permit C then A2 level is sufficient. Nevertheless, the applicant will have to provide document in criminal and debt clearance of the spouse.

Otherwise B1 is required.

interesting that as a spouse, you have a language test for the c permit… but not for citizenship


I don't know what's required for citizenship, perhaps to be able to name all the Kantons that existed in 1577, or to be able to pronounce Chuchi Chäschtli like an Appenzeller would.


As I have absolutely no desire to become a Swiss citizen, I don't really care, but being able to speak at least some basic German in the German speaking parts seems to be a reasonable request for a non immigrant C permit.

I live in Oerlikon and I have been here 6 years, I am an EU citizen, with a Swiss spouse and I am employed, and they still required the A2 certificate. Maybe you should take the test, its not that hard...
