Renewal of B permit and passport validity

Hi all,

Does a non-EU passport have to be valid for the duration of the permit that is to be issued? I currently have a B permit that expires in mid September (and is renewable until September of 2016) and a non-EU passport that is valid until April of next year (2016). Do I need to extend the passport in this case?
Does anyone have experience with Basel City authorities?

thanks)))
P.S.: this might have come up in other threads, I'm just interested in Basel specifically since I know it is different from canton to canton...

Not that I've heard of. It's the fact that you have an employment contract here that matters, not whether your passport has been renewed.

Re: Renewal of B permit and passport validity

As far as I know, the passport, if it is valid at the moment you renew your permit, then there is no problem.

They normally ask you to bring your passport along to renew the permit and there is nothing written there about it's validity. So it is not an issue. Just do renew it once you wish to travel outside of Switzerland in the Schengen zone; as your permit is not going to be enough and you will need to present a valid passport if stopped.

I hope this helps.

Sam.

Re: Renewal of B permit and passport validity

I was in this same boat last year and the answer is no. Interestingly, they didn't even want the details of my new passport when I paid them a visit after I got my new one!
