Swiss Dependent Visa with Work permit (Non EU)

hi,

I'm in India. My spouse has settled in swiss. my dependent visa is getting processed. I would like to continue my job as software engineer. So I'm trying for options like Work From Home from switzerland , but still being on Indian payrolls ( continue working for the same company , but from Swiss ). I would like to know what kind of supporting document I should get from my company so that I can apply for work permit.

Thanks,
Ezhil.

Re: Swiss Dependent Visa with Work permit (Non EU)

First of all the name of the country is SWITZERLAND and not Swiss.
Second, what makes you think you will get a work permit in Switzerland and work for an Indian company and get paid in India.
I think you are in for a disapointment.

Re: Swiss Dependent Visa with Work permit (Non EU)

hi there,

i am sorry, i dont have good news for you either.

firstly, if your company (back in india) is accepting your WFH in swiss, then do not apply for a swiss dependant visa.. apply for a work permit in switzerland through your indian company

secondly, if you wish to look for a software job in swiss, you cannot do so in a L permit (which your company in India processes). you need to have a dependant B permit to be eligible to work in swiss

so, it really depends on what kind of permit your spouse holds.. if he has a B permit, you can risk coming on a dependant visa and look for a job here. else, better to process a work permit from your indian company for working in switzerland.

best,
sovan

You might get an IT job in Switzerland with relevant permits as mentioned in previous threads, however I do not have any clue on what IT job you will get in 'Swiss'. I can think of getting a job in a country but not in the 'citizens of the country'!

If you want to work for India based company from home in switzerland and still be on their payrolls and keep getting paid in Indian Rupees.......well.... then I dont think you would need any permit for that in switzerland.
I guess you would need a permit only if you work for a company and get paid here in switzerland.

Yeah, if your company is generous enough to let you work from a foreign land you don't need a work permit.

All the best and welcome to Switzerland. You may not want to work after coming into this beautiful country!
