Re: Permit processing

Is it a pre-approved one or a B permit via family reunification?

Re: Permit processing

Okay, I assume your husband is also non-EU in which case you have to notify the migration office when you find a job so the employment part of your permit can be activated. At the moment it only allows you to reside here, but non-EU dependent B permit holders don't need authorisation to be able to work, you just have to notify the migration office that you've found a job. Take your employment contract to their office to show them so they know you're now employed.

Thanks for the useful information, just wanted to follow up on this. I am non-EU, married to an EU citizen and living in Switzerland on a family reunification permit. I've recently been offered and accepted a job (yay!) and want to know how to proceed. I understand that I should report the offer to my canton, but is there a specific procedure, office, or time frame I should be aware of? Very grateful for any info!

Re: Permit processing

Ah good, that makes it even easier. Just take your employment contract to your cantonal migration office to let them know you now have a job. You effectively have the same permit as your husband so it'll already have the work part. Just make sure to go to the office and present your contract before you start working.

"Spouses and children of EU-27/EFTA nationals who are admitted to Switzerland under family reunification are legally entitled to work regardless of their nationality. However, they have to inform the appropriate cantonal migration authorities before doing so."
