B permit EU and Non-EU

Hello everyone.

First of all please apologize if I created an unnecessary thread that is listed elsewhere. Even though I searched on the forum, maybe not enough.

My concerns are these:

Can a Norwegian Passport holder migrate to Switzerland and search for a job?
Can he/she obtain a B permit after finding a job and/or is it difficult to get C permit after a required time period?

Non-EU

I am from Macedonia. In this case marrying my other, after he/she immigrates to Switzerland with Norwegian Passport and gets the B permit, do I also get a B permit or it isnt possible to get it this way?

And do you recommend me to first arrange the needed marital documents in Norway and THEN migrate to Switzerland. Or it doesnt make any difference in getting the B permit.

Thank you so much for your attention. Gladly appreciated.

Hi,

As a Norway citizen you have the right to live and work in Switzerland. Based on your work contract immigration authority will give you either L permit or B Permit.

You other half if married will also get the same permit as you have got. Provided you have a reasonable apartment and health insurance.It would be better to get married and for your other half to go along with you without any hassle.

Your EU husband/wife also has to earn enough money to support you, for you to get a permit.

Not necessarily. EU citizen has by minimum work for at least 12 to 14 hrs a week. You should be able to prove you have an apartment and insurance cover. You can show your financial sufficiency with a combination of your job and bank balance.

This will be enough get your non-eu spouse to eligible to work in Switzerland.

Re: B permit EU and Non-EU

If you are married your spouse can come with you.

If you are planning to get married, you can apply for a permit for the purposes of marriage in Switzerland. The future spouse may not reside in Switzerland while you are waiting for a marriage permit.

They will tell you it takes 3 months to get a marriage permit, but reality is about 6 months if everything runs smoothly. Documentation requirements for a marriage permit are huge, so maybe easier to get married before you come.

If the fiancÚ can get a Shengen visa, he can be a tourist, but beware it may get stamped "excluding Switzerland" if it is known that a marriage visa was applied for.

Re: B permit EU and Non-EU

Getting a C permit isn't just about how long you've lived here. The requirement in Zurich and some other cantons is that you must also speak the official language of the canton you live in - German for Zurich. If you can't do this you'll never get a C permit no matter how long you've lived here. A C permit will be a requirement for naturalisation under the new Swiss law due to come in late 2016/early 2017 so if that's a long term goal you're going to have to learn German.

Re: B permit EU and Non-EU

So in other words are you saying its better to get married before migrating to Switzerland or after. Or again that wont make any much of difference.

Re: B permit EU and Non-EU

It'll probably be quicker in Norway than Switzerland.
