waiting for the visa authorization letter for three weeks, what can I do?
I received an offer from an IT company located in Zurich in May, and the HR of that company submit a work permit application for me in mid-June. However, it took about 2.5 months to approve my application, and the HR told me we should receive the visa authorization letter in 7-10 days.
Last Monday, these was about two weeks since the HR told me that my work permit had been approved, and I asked her why I didn't received the visa letter. She called the Zurich labor office and told me that there was delay in transmitting my documents from one authority to the next, and they promised to handled my case with priority. However, it is 10 days after that and I still get no update. I felt anxious and asked the HR again, and she answered that it seemed there was heavy work load in the labor office and couldn't tell me how long I have to wait!
I am so angry and frustrated in this process. The authorities are low efficiency and the HR is not active. My initial start date in Zurich was Aug 3, and then became September 7, then became September 14, then became October 5...I am afraid if I couldn't got the visa letter in next week I have to change my start date again because it will take several days to issue the entry visa after I submit my passport and there is one week long holiday in my country begin at October 1st. What should I do for that??
