Staying over 90 days for EU national

Hi everyone,

I'm new here so any help would be highly appreciated. I've got a question, possibly it's been answered somewhere before, but mostly everything I see is referring to US/Non-EU citizens only.

I have an EU-citizenship (Romania) + residence in Germany. For the time being I need to move to Switzerland (for 8 months to be precised), however, as far as I know I'm only allowed to stay here for 3 months without registration or valid permit. I'll be trying to apply for job, however, as far as I understood that's not very likely to find anything during the first 3 months.

My main question would be: what if I overstay in Switzerland more than 90 days? I've entered the country using my ID (so I didn't get any stamps as EU citizen), the borders are open, which means I can easily come back to Germany where I have a valid residence without anyone knowing whether I'm in Switzerland or Germany. Is there a possibility for Swiss authorities to prove it anyhow, maybe somebody has an experience or heard about common situations.

It's not like I want to stay here illegally, when I'm EU citizen and have a residence in Germany, I'll be trying to find a job, but just in case it doesn't work within a 3 months frame, what should I do?

Would be very grateful for your help and advices.

Thank you!

Just get an L permit so you can search for 1 year.

Thanks for the advice, I'll be checking on that. What troubles me is that I've found some info on ch.ch, where they say that they might require a proof of sufficient funds. What I've seen here on the forum, people tell that it might be up to 100CHF per day, making it 3000CHF per months, then multiplied by many months.. Unfortunately, I don't have 30,000CHF in cash or on my account to prove it.

How do you intend to pay: Rent, health insurance, food and other necessities?

That's not a problem. I do have alternative sources of income back from my country + financial support. It's all coming month by month added on top of some savings, enough for let's 3 or 4 months, but not for the whole year in advance.

Re: Staying over 90 days for EU national

You can come here and register as a job seeker for 3 months, funds permitting. If you don't find a job in that time you can ask for an L permit for another 3 months, fund permitting. The L permit can be extended for up to a year in 3 monthly intervals, funds permitting of course. However, be aware that there are quota restrictions on Bulgarians and Romanians for jobs until 31st May 2016 at the moment.
