Study aboard with B/ C working permit

Hi everybody,

I am wondering if there is any chance for me to keep my B-permit or C-permit while studying in other countries?

I have a B working-permit for 5 years and will be expired next year. Probably I can then apply for the C permit if I keep working in Switzerland. However I would like to further develop myself and Switzerland doesn't provide courses that I need.

Anybody will be able to advice me on this? It would be very helpful and thank you very much in advance!

C.

Re: Study aboard with B/ C working permit

Yes, it may be possible. You can put a B or C permit "on hold" for up to 4 years. The criteria to do so is quite narrow, but further education is one of the accepted reasons. Talk to your commune/gemeinde admin office for further info as they are the ones who have to give you permission to do this.

Re: Study aboard with B/ C working permit

Thank you very much for your information Medea! That really helps a lot! I will then look for some courses outside Switzerland.

I suppose during the aboard study year(s) I have to continue pay for the Swiss tax? As well, probably I need to keep my address in Switzerland?

Re: Study aboard with B/ C working permit

I'm not sure exactly what's required for it. The main thing is that you need to show that your centre of life will still be here so yes, maybe having your address here will be required. You may need to keep paying Swiss health insurance too, I don't know.

The 3 acceptable reasons are being sent to work abroad by your Swiss company, military service or further education. If you're a student at uni and not likely to be earning I can't see the tax issue would arise, but again it'll depend on exactly what you plan to do. Your gemeinde/commune is the best place to ask as they have to give permission for the permit to be put on hold and they'll have their own rules they work to - which, as we know in Switzerland, can vary from admin office to admin office.
