Re: Non EU work permit processing time and chances of approval

Anyways, is it true that usually HR would be contacted when a decision comes from the Cantonal office and then again from the FOM?
Yes it will be sent to the company as they handed in the application. The application goes through three authorities, two cantonal, one federal (local office for economy and labor, federal office of migration, cantonal office for justice and security).

The company will receive a permit approval (provided obviously it will be approved). You then need to go to the nearest embassy of your home country (if you already live abroad, to whichever one is nearest in that country) to pick up your entry visa, which will be processed with/in your passport. Once in Switzerland, you need to go to the local authority who will process your actual permit and issue the respective permit card.

Agree with previous poster, 1 Oct is not a realistic start date and if I were you, I'd reach out to HR to inquire how to deal with the situation. What we usually did/do is simply postpone the start date and adapt the contract accordingly.

Do NOT enter Switzerland before you have approval. Even if you could enter visa-free as a tourist (depends on your nationality), you can NOT pick up your visa/permit here and would need to leave again to pick it up. So wherever you are right now, wait there
