Re: strange documents requested - Permit B renewal for Non-EU

Hello, welcome to the forum!

To begin with, not all permits type B are the same. If it's coming fro the university, the permit of your wife may say something in the back like "education along lucrative activity" in Italian. This B permit is different to the B permit that allows to work unrestricted in CH "lucrative activity". Why both permits are B? Don't know, maybe the alphabet is that short that they had to use B more than one time.

Next, it is curious that HR offered to do this job for your wife and you. Usually, everyone is responsible of their permits. Did your wife signed something to let HR people act in her behalf?

Then, where's the money for the university position coming from? Is it a mobility grant from other country? Cantonal funds? Swiss science fund (SNF)? What were the specific grant conditions? Some academic funding has some conditions about staying or leaving.

Finally, income. Don't tell me your income, but the Swiss estimate a couple without kids needs 3000 CHF per month to survive. You could make it with less, but it's a standard to cover housing, food, health insurance, clothing and mobility. In some cantons it's a bit more in other less, but if your wife's income is near this level it's probable the authorities think there might be economic hardship.

I'd get rid of the middleman and deal directly with cantonal authorities. The HR people has nothing to gain or lose, why expect something from them?
