Re: Changing L to B permit

Right, so at the moment I am on an L permit. I'm an EU citizen, and this is my second L permit, as I only had a one year contract, then it was extended for another year with no problems. I understand that an L permit cannot be extended, or a new one applied for after you have had one for 2 years is that correct?
Incorrect for EU cititzens.

I also have been told by friends that to apply for a B permit, you either have to be earning over a certain amount, or have someone commit to financially supporting you? Again, is that correct or have I got that wrong?
Wrong. You just need to be employed.

Also approximately how long does it take for a B permit to be approved/denied? I know this is going to vary canton to canton, but I'm talking roughly?
As soon as you get the right employment contract or the right person at your local town hall it will be automatic and take no time at all. It cannot be denied (unless you've been out murdering people or similar).
