Registering to the city with a B permit

Hello everyone
I just landed in Zurich and tomorrow I'd like to go to the local office and make the registration to the city. Being a EU citizen I have to ask for a B permit.
I read that I need my ID card, a couple of id pictures, my job contract, the rent contract and some fee depending on the type of permit.

I wanted to withdraw some CHF before going to the office but I have no idea how much it will cost and I can't find anything on the internet... do you guys know something more?

Thanks!

You don't ASK for a B-permit, you get whatever permit the authorities decide is correct for you.

It's normally around the 100 franc mark, it depends on the Geminde, you'll be safe if you take 150chf.

Re: Registering to the city with a B permit

It depends on your employment contract. If it's for less than a year you'll get an L permit, if longer then it will be a B.

Re: Registering to the city with a B permit

Basically you fill in the application form at the migration office or gemeinde and present the supporting paperwork. There's nowhere on the form to request a particular type of permit. Eventually you'll be sent your permit in the mail, only then will you know what you actually have. But for an EU national with a year or longer employment contract it will be a B.

Re: Registering to the city with a B permit

Don't you also need to have a valid CH health insurance?

Not at the beginning, no. You have 3 months from registering as being resident to arrange your Swiss health insurance. If you don't then the gemeinde/commune may put you on their default one which may be more expense than you might like. And if you leave arranging the insurance until the 3 months are almost up, you'll have a big first invoice to cover those backdated 3 months as you're covered at the moment of registration whether you've arranged your cover or not. Not arranging it soon after you arrive means you may need to pay in full any medical bills and can only reclaim the costs back once you've got your insurance in place.
