| || |Hi all, I just found I am in this situation today I need guidance from EF...
I'm changing Kanton (ZH to SH) so I need to hand my B visa to them as to change it, which I will be doing 01/Dec.
But I am flying to South America on mid December, which doesnt look like my visa will be ready on time! (couldnt do it earlier as i needed my contract from landlord to prove i'm moving to SH).
Should I request already a temporary visa to the Migrationsamt re-enter Switzerland, when i come back in January?
note: my passport is EU-country.
thanks in advance for any advice!

Recently I had something similar, with my family - although moving within the same Canton.
We moved to a different Gemeinde at about the time our residence permits were being renewed, after we had received a letter saying our renewal had been approved but before the permits had been issued, and thought the proper paperwork had been handed in to everyone ... then found out a month later (about a month before we had to travel overseas) that there was one more piece of paper we had to hand in to our new Gemeinde for the process to be done. We submitted that paper.
We went on our holiday, without the new permits, but with a copy of the letter saying the new permits had been approved. On our return to Switzerland we showed our passports, the old permits, and the letter saying our new permits had been approved. The guy at the desk checked his computer for a few minutes, then we were through with no more questions.
Hope this helps!
Personally, I'd check with your local Gemeinde ...
