How much is a B Permit?

Hi,
Ive just got a contract for a job, previously working as an Aupair, and now have a new job as an English Teacher, does anyone know how much a B permit is? i saw somewhere that someone spend 7000CHF?!?! Is this true? I just need to know how much money I need to take to the permit office!
Thanks

Hi Ruth,

As far as I know (also from personal, recent experience), the B-permit is free.
When I finally received my B-permit, I just needed to bring a picture and the 'approval' letter from the gemeinde.
They put the picture on the card and I could take the permit with me....

Depends where you are, but I suspect somewhere between 80 and 150Fr.

Re: How much is a B Permit?

For my wife a non-eu citizen, i had to pay around 110 chf for actual "processing/approval" and 145 chf for the biometric credit card type 5 year ausweis. This was 3 months ago. Anything above 300 chf would be ridiculous in my opinion.

The amount you've heard is probably what a company can expect to spend to request a permit for a non-EU citizen. You're not a company, and you're EU so no worries. I think my B-permit in Canton Bern was around 105 Francs.

Maybe it's recent enough that the invoice hasn't arrived yet...
