Re: work visa rejected for non-eu

View Post
Hello all,

I am in a similar situation. I am already here in Geneva looking for work. I am on passport till Sept 1 when the tourist visa I was granted takes effect for 6 month stay. I was told that I could not work on a tourist visa but that if a company was interested in me they would apply for the work visa.

I got a call yesterday from a recruiting company that was interested to hire me but as soon as I said I had no work visa they said there was nothing they could do, that I was responsible to get my own work visa but I was also told that you must have contract for employment in order to even apply for the visa.

I'm totally confused here and don't know where to start in order to be able to work in Geneva. I am living with my Swiss boyfriend and we will marry early 2010.

Anyone that can help clarify things for me?
Get married!!! If the employer asks you to apply for work permit by yourself in the first's unlikely that they can help you...
