Germany gives "Permanent Residency" for non-Europeans in Two Years - The New Magnet.

Interesting info from German Government about "Blue Card" for non-EU Citizens.

Permanent Residency (similar to C Permit) in just 2 years !
Can't believe Germany - The New Magnet for Immigrants

Good to know. As non-EU this year I can apply for a C-Permit after 5 years, it's an annoyance to have to pay 366 CHF each year to renew the permits. If I get rejected I might have a look in Germany.

Interesting, especially the part about students.

I have always found it strange that people can easily come into Switzerland for higher education. But when they successfully complete the courses then there are all sorts of obstacles stopping these highly skilled and probably well integrated people from obtaining employment here.

It is rather like cooking a gourmet meal & then throwing it away....

Why would they be well integrated?

I know plenty of people who have come for higher education - English is the language and, as a generality, they tend to generate a form of sub-culture in and around the universities.

So, little to no German (unless they learned it prior, naturally), not to mention dialect, congregated around larger "cities" and primary exposure is an international group that makes up the research team. I wouldn't say they are more likely to be integrated, just the opposite, actually.

Not that I think it isn't illogical to subsidize education for people that aren't allowed to work.

....................
Depends on the definition of "well integrated" I suppose.

For me
  • they found somewhere to live
  • they travel regularily to the university
  • they know where & how to shop
  • they can deal with the usual Swiss administration stuff
  • they know people here & have some sort of network
