Help please, looking for information on how long I can stay in Swiss!

Hi everyone,

I have a question and I hope someone knows the answer!

I'm from Holland and I will be going to Switzerland in December to do a Ski season. My boss will get me a workpermit of 3 months. This permit will last until the middle of March, but I want to stay until somewhere in April.

Does anyone know if I can just stay in Switzerland after the permit ends? And if so, how long am I allowed to stay?
Or do I have to cross the boarder and come back after the permit ends?

I have read different things about it on the internet and also people are telling me different things, so I'm a little confused at the moment. Really hope one of you can help me out with this!

Thanks in advance,

Romanée

EU citizens can stay up to 3 months with no permit, but you have to register within 2 weeks of arrival. If you are working from December-April, hence longer than 3 months, you will need a residence permit, which doubles as a work permit.

Thank you lorena1!!

But does that mean that when I arrive and I register and I let them know I have work, that after my workpermit ends I can stay 3 more months? And yeah I am staying in an appartment there and I will earn money so I can do that.

Re: Help please, looking for information on how long I can stay in Swiss!

I would like to work in Switzerland. What are the conditions for getting a work permit?

Nationals of an EU-25/EFTA state now only need a residence permit: this residence permit doubles as work permit. However, a residence permit will only be issued if you have a valid employment contract.

I would like to work in Switzerland. How do I proceed?

EU-25/EFTA

Gainful employment of up to 3 months
EU-25/EFTA nationals taking up a job in Switzerland may stay in Switzerland without a residence permit for three months in a calendar year. However, they are subject to registration with the appropriate authorities.
More information about registration

Not sure if this registration scheme would apply to ski personnel or not though.

After your 3 months' employment is up, you simply revert to tourist status for up to another 3 months. Just don't work during that time.
