Re: Living in Oberägeri Working in Zurich

Why don't you finally call the authorities and actually have it confirmed by those rather than the transfer person, as was suggested months ago? There's no point in you looking at apartments in a certain area if you're not 100% sure you will be able to move there right away and without any problems.

My colleague, non-EU, for example, was NOT allowed to move cantons. His permit is for Basel-Stadt, he cannot even move to Baselland. Just saying that yes, this can happen.

Uetlibergstrasse is pretty bad on public transportation, from your home location anyway. It will take you almost 90mins from Oberägeri to your workplace. Which is why I'm saying - it's not always location and theoretical distance, but number of connections of various modes of transportation along with - in the case of Zurich - where you work exactly in the city. Uetlibergstrasse is a loooong street too, so whether you work at Uetlibergstrasse 1 or 350 may make a difference of easily 10-15mins by tram - which isn't much, but if you add it to the 80+ minutes to get even there, well... By car it would be so-so, but really quite far from ideal.

It pretty much pays off for everyone who commutes daily and between cantons.
It is Uetlibergstrasse, 231

To be honest i am not that worried if i can or cannot live in Zug because the first 3 months the company provides me with an apartment so i will have time to adjust if this is not possible and then i look for a definitive place somewhere in Zurich.
I am assuming that this is possible because i know 2 other Brazilians (Non-Eur passports) that work on the same company, which leave in different cantons and commute to Zurich.
What one of then told me is if you plan to apply for a permanent residency or apply for citizenship you must be leaving at least 10 years on the same Canton and if you decide to move the year count resets ... So it is bad business to move Canton on this situation.
