Re: Improving the chances of getting a non-EU B work permit?

I found this on the bfm.admin website about the EU-25 quotas:

"For EU-8 nationals the quota for residence permit (type B permit) is 545. Contingents will be released every three months on the following dates: 1 May 2013, 1 August 2013, 1 November 2013 and 1 February 2014.

For EU-17 nationals the quota for residence permit (type B permit) is 13 428. Contingents will be released every three months on the following dates: 1 June 2013, 1 September 2013, 1 December 2013 and 1 March 2014."

There's no allocation of permits canton by canton, it's first come, first served.

What the figure is for non-EU's I have no idea though. What I also don't know is what effect, if any, bringing in quotas for EU-17 nationals has on the non-EU side of things. Does it mean there are more permits available for non-EU's, the same as before, or less? Are the figures mentioned per quarter or for the year?
