I am a third country national, and my 2 year L-permit will expire in September, '07 (along with my work contract). Does anyone know if a L-permit holder (non- EU) can stay on for 2-3 extra months, before leaving Switzerland? Or do they have to leave immediately the day the L-permit expires? I know that L-permit holders dont get unemployment benefit, but I would like to stay on for 2-3 months more without pay. Is this possible?
