I'm really sorry if the answers to these questions can be found somewhere on here, I have searched and haven't found them though.
I moved to Switzerland from England in August 2015 and have an L Permit to work as an Au Pair that expires in August 2016.
However I want to stay and work as a Nanny for at least another year, meaning I would be changing jobs.
1) My friend did a similar thing to me last year and tells me that to stay, I will have to prove that I earn 2,500 francs a month. Does anyone have any more information about this? I can't find anything on the internet. (Canton Bern)
2) If I have contracts and all the information, could I apply for a permit in July? Or do I have to wait for my old one to expire?
3) Do I have to have somewhere to live before applying for a permit? My concern is that I will find somewhere to rent and then not get a permit (massive concern anyway) so it would make more sense to get the permit first?
Thank you for reading
