Residence permit for EU-8 citizen

Hi all,

I've signed a contract with a company based in Zurich starting on 7th of September. Although I've read various information online I am not sure I understand it correctly and also have a few questions I hope you'll help me with.

As I am a citizen of an EU-8 country and my employment is for unlimited duration, as far as I know I should apply for a B permit. Am I right? I've also read something about permit quotas but I am not sure: do they apply in my situation? If so, what would happen if the quota has been reached?

Also I am not sure where should I apply for my permit. Some webpages say that I should go to "Migrationsamt", others that I should go to "Kreiseburo". Which one is correct?

Thanks for your help.

Re: Residence permit for EU-8 citizen

Yes, simply take your employment contract to the gemeinde (town/city) admin office and you'll fill in a form to get your permit issued. As it's a permanent contract you'll get a B permit. There are no quotas for EU-8 nationals, only EU2's still have quota limits.
