Changing canton with permi L
I have an expat friend that has permi L and he lives in Lucerne canton for about 1 year. Since he works here, he thinks that after one year we will be permi B if he stays in the same canton. But he has found a possible place to rent in Nidwalden.

If he switches canton, will we keep permi L for another year, or he can still be entitled to have B permit?

Depending on the nationality/work contract it can be that he will get another L.

Ask the Gemeinde first before moving? If he is non EU he needs prior approval before moving afaik

Re: Changing canton with permi L
If he's non-EU there is no entitlement to a B permit; it's entirely down to what the cantonal authorities decide. In most cases non-EU's will be on an L permit for at least 2 years before they're likely to get a B.

And yes, he needs to ask permission from both Lucerne and Nidwalden cantons before he can move. Nidwalden has to agree to grant a new permit for him which they may refuse to do.
