Re: Do I need the Residence Permit B to rent an apartment?

Ok, thank you for the quick reply! But it is a sure thing that I need an apartment in order to apply for the permit B, correct?
You might need proof of a permanent address for longer than the next 3 months. Can be a Hotel, Campground, Air'BnB etc. But it should be for at least 3 months. Otherwise you might have to hop through hoops, have to be persistent and face some bureaucratic Catch-22 and Passierschein A38 problems. As federal law mandates registration within 14 days if you intend to stay permanently, but specifically registration must be done before you start to work, but cantons policies says a temp rental contract of less than 3 months is no proof that one intends to stay permanently. With the nice cherry on the top, the the work contract can be cancelled within the first 3 month easily by both sides and a long term rental commitment might not be the best option.

Be aware, just like in Germany you must report any change of address at the commune. If you are from Berlin, heard it is a mess at the Einwohnermeldeamt with long waiting times. Nothing like that in Switzerland.
