Re: NON EU-Resident work permit

1. Did you apply under the old passport or the new one? If new, it's not a problem. Under the old, well it should have been valid for 6 months at least as far as I know so that may hold things up.

2. It takes as long as it takes. Usually it takes 8-12 weeks I think, but if there's a problem or they need more info then it could take longer. We're into the holiday period now too so that may delay things.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by saying you're applying through your IT firm. Is this your actual company or a firm that employs you. Either way said employer will have to prove they can't find a Swiss/EU national who could do the job as per the non-EU hiring rules.

Re: NON EU-Resident work permit

I don't know. You'd need to ask the cantonal migration office about it.

Re: NON EU-Resident work permit

Easy bet for you is to just mail/call your immigration team in IT firm who are applying for your visa. They should know about such cases of lost old passports.

Re: NON EU-Resident work permit

You don't need the old passport if it is expired, so it is irrelevant that it is lost/stolen/retracted. Your new passport is valid and this is the document you will have with you whilst your application is processed and which will be valid during the time you will reside here.

You can't always be expected to submit all documents, some documents for some nationalities may not even exist.

Some countries do not even give you the annulled/expired passport/identity card back when you are issued with a new one, other countries do, but punch a hole through it, cut the corner off or stamp it with "cancelled" in block letters on important pages.

You carry out all applications for visas, permits etc. with your new/valid document. I doubt anybody is ever going to ask you for an old one.

I see no reason why Ticino would want to see an old/expired/cancelled/lost passport. Clearly if you have a photocopy of the old passport then all the better.

You have a new/valid passport - the travel document with which you enter and exit the country, in which your visa for Switzerland is affixed, and which you present to the Foreigners' Police in Mendrisio when you apply for a residence permit which allows you to work there.
