I am a non-EU currently on my second year L permit, and my work has been trying to get me a B-permit. The initial submission to the authorities was made almost two months ago, but up until now I have not heard anything back and my L permit expires at the end of July.
I contacted my HR, she said that she had been trying to call them but she couldn't get through, that their phone system is just overloaded. In any case, I thought you guys might know more than my HR does
If by August when my L permit expires, and I have not heard anything from the immigration dept. does that mean I will have to leave Switzerland? Even though my B-permit is currently being processed?
I have plans to go overseas on the second week of August (bad timing I know) so to get back into the country, is there some official documentation I can ask for from the immigration dept. that I can show border security when I come back, in effect to say that my permit is being processed and pretty please let me back in?
