Its basically the company applying for L permit without you leaving the country. This has worked for a few collegues in the past. However the situation could be different now with the quota issues (even though the quota will be renewed from July)

The HR Team here in my company told I can not apply for extention and have to stay outside swiss for 2 months and then apply for L permit.

where should I ask here in Zurich to clear the real picture?

Your parent company can apply for extension, there is no need to leave the country. If accepted, you will get an extension of 8 months.
There is no concept of an extension for the non-quota 4 month permit.

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

I am currently living and working in NewYork City and there is potential contract job opportunity in Basel, Switzerland. I am a Canadian, not an EU member, plus the company doesn't support the work permit for contract position.

I am devastating on finding the way to have a work permit. Anyone here had the same situation and would like to share the idea, I would so appreciate.

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

Hello everyone,

Could some one clarify on a Non EU L-B conversion, i suppose there are two levels of approval one from the canton and other from the Federal, would appreciate if some one can share their thoughts on the federal approval is it a mere formality if the canton approves?
i mean can there be Federal rejection even if the labour is approved by the canton.

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

Hello everyone,

I am a non-EU girl living in zurich with a B permit (valid for more than a year) which I got when I married an EU guy last year.
The problem is that I do not want to be with him anymore. I can not give details here, but to sum up my life is a nightmare with him. I am even scared of him.
I want to move away from him, but I am afraid that if I do it when registering in another communal office or when my husband complaints to the authorities, they would take off my permit and ask me to leave the country, considering that the reason for me to come here is in doubtful situation (less than one year marriage and living separate, if I manage to move).
I am currently working and I like what I am doing, and after leaving important things to come here I do not want to go back just like this.
Does anybody know if the authorities could revoke my permit and ask me to leave the country when I change my address? I mean, I would still be married, and I understand that only after two years of separation my husband could ask for divorce himself.
I know I could also try to ask my employer to get a work permit for me, but no at this stage of the year, as these permits depend on year quotas.

Actually if you already have a job and change your status from married to divorced your permit does not come out of the quota. However the authorities might check your reasons to get married twice rather than once...

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

Thanks for your answer,
but what do you mean by "your permit does not come out of the quota"? if I get divorce I would be applying for a different permit, a work permit...
And, even if authorities check my reason to get married, if I decide to separate from my husband they can not cancel my marriage... so how could they revoke my permit?.. based on what?. And what about my reasons to get separated?, this should also count.

Quota is for people not yet in Switzerland or those changing specifically from L to B. Yours is a change but not of this type and would not be decided on the basis of quota.

However, if the authorities decide this was a sham marriage they will revoke your permit. They may also take further action such as prosecution and / or deportation. The alarm bells will be triggered when you register at a new address - the old fashioned Swiss like married couples to live together . Remember, the authorities are way more suspicious than folk on the forum.

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

Hi, Thanks a lot for the detailed information!

I have recently renewed my 1- year B permit for my second year of living and working in Switzerland (I'm non-EU); and I wonder - if I quit my job which initially gave me this permit, do I lose it? or can I stay in Switzerland, living and perhaps working in some other job - until expiry date (in 11 months)?

Thanks!

If its a restricted B permit, then you need to leave as soon as you leave this job.

On the pdf it must say 'einzigen Arbeitgeber'
Sometimes the emplyer name is also stated.
If there is no such thing, then it must be non-restricted.

Do you work directly for a Swiss company ? Then the chances of it being open are more, and then you can look for another job.

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

Can someone clarify this please..
I have a restricted B permit, and my spouse is working on a dependant B permit here since 2 months . My extension is due in January next year, but I am likely to be sent back by November this year.
My question is, will my spouse have to leave the country too ? Or is he able to continue working here ?
Really awaiting a reply.. Thanks..

Yes, unfortunately his permit is linked to your permit.

I think, if the labour authorities approve then the federal officials will second the approval, because labour authorities are the ones who decide whether the resource is required to work or not!

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

Hi,
Another scenario. I am married to a frenchman and am currently waiting for my french nationality to be processed. I am australian. We are thinking of moving to Europe and I was wondering if it is possible for me to come over before him to live and work (to seek job options and settle before he makes the move over). What type of work permit would I apply or receive if
1) i am still awaiting French nationality but wish to come over before it is granted
2) if I do have the french nationality- do i still have to get some sort of visa to work?
Thanks for all the useful info.

Same as all non-EU citizens. Very hard to get anything at the moment.

Nope - straight in and off you go. You can even come just as a jobseeker.

Who'd have thought being French could be useful .

Edityedity - if your hubby comes then you get the same permit as him even before you become French - how cool is that?

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

Hello friends,

HR today told me that my work permit B (non-EU) has been approved by canton and been forwarded to Bern for approval. Just wanted to know from your experiences about the success rate of Federal approval.

I know that you don't know the facts, circumstances etc. and also the fact that there have been threads related to this topic before, was wondering if anyone would like to share some recent insights on this.

Thanks in advance.
