Non-EU B permit: chaging to 40% vacancy

Hello all,


I am non-EU with B permit working in a 100% vacancy in Zurich. Can I change my vacancy to 40%, from the immigration office viewpoint?


I understand that the labour office in Zurich will not care as long as I am under an 'open' B permit.


Thank you !

I doubt it. Even as an EU citizen you need 50% work to get a permit.

Would that not be possible even if one proves sufficient funds to finance oneself?

Yes, I guess so, as as an EU citizen you can get a permit via wealth not work. But just a 40% contract alone won't cut it (That is the experience of friends of mine... but I guess if their hourly rate was significantly higher it might be different).

Re: Non-EU B permit: chaging to 40% vacancy

Thanks. I thought it indeed may have to do with the salary itslef and not vacancy %: i.e. I thought that there is some minimum (56k CHF?) - which is considered as minimum...

Re: Non-EU B permit: chaging to 40% vacancy

It's usually a choice for both EU and non-EU, either you have a permit and work or you have a permit and don't work because you're independently wealthy. And I mean don't work at all! I suppose it's possible an EU national could work part time with sufficient backup funds, but I doubt the Swiss will let a non-EU national do it.

Thanks. I thought it would depend for non-EU on whether this is an open B permit or not...?
