Living in France but working in CH with a Swiss B permit

Dear all,
I was wondering how (if at all) is it possible for someone (non-EU,non-US,..) who has a job and hence a B/L permit in Switzerland to live in France and commute daily to his job?

Re: Living in France but working in CH with a Swiss B permit

A residence permit for Switzerland (L or B) does not give you permission to live in France. You'd need to find out what the French requirements are, and get permission to live there. Then you'd need to request a cross-border G permit for working Switzerland, but I am not sure they give those to non-EUs.

Yes, they do.

However, to qualify for a G permit you have to live in a French border zone for at least 6 months. If you moved to France you wouldn't get a G because you wouldn't have lived in the border zone long enough to qualify. You'd also lose your job and your L/B permit as you'd no longer be resident in Switzerland.

And do be careful too about other factors too. Should you be unfortunate to lose your job, unemployment benefits if you live on the French side are much lower than on the Swiss side. Keep an eye on health care insurance too- but as said in the meantime it looks like you can't move to France as this stage- so have plenty of time to look at all the issues.
