work in one canton, live in another NON-EU

Hi All,

Any restrictions to stay in same canton as work office/work contract location? For non-EU, already stayed in SWITZERLAND for 6 years. Permit B

ie say work office/contract from Canton of Vaud but live in Zurich?

No. B permit holders have geographic and employement mobility.

But you need to inform both cantons.

If your family is staying in one and you are the only one working in the other, the canton might object as your center of life is where your family is.

Thank you.

It is same company different offices. So contract office is in Caton Vaud, I will be working out of Zurich office, where we as family reside.
So for all practical purposes we are in canton Zurich..except for the work contract in Vaud office

So you work and live in the same canton. I don't see the issue.

Re: work in one canton, live in another NON-EU

I heard that some IT companies are facing difficulty getting/renewing work permits for non EU from Zurich canton so they are setting shops in different cantons to get around it. Is your company planning to get work permit from Vaud or Zurich?

I would say ZH should not have any problem to grant residency as they will be receiving taxes. Main issue is to have a work permit.

Are you sure about this? My wife is non-EU, was on B and when we moved did we not inform the canton as EU people would but applied to move canton... not that it was difficult, more of a formality. Basically do cantons not want to have the risky social cases coming to them. As long as your finances are in order should it be easy.

Re: work in one canton, live in another NON-EU

Here is the relevant law in English:

"Art. 36 Place of residence

Persons with a short stay permit, a residence or a permanent residence permit are free to choose their place of residence within the canton that granted the permit.

Art. 37 Change of the place of residence to another canton

1 Persons with a short stay permit or a residence permit who would like to relocate their place of residence to another canton must apply for the appropriate permit from the new canton beforehand.

2 Persons with a residence permit are entitled to move to another canton provided they are not unemployed and there are no grounds for revocation in terms of Article 62.

3 Persons with a permanent residence permit are entitled to move to another canton, provided there are no grounds for revocation in terms of Article 63."

https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...232/index.html

For the Foreign Nationals Act full version see this link:

https://www.sem.admin.ch/content/dam...ngen-aug-f.pdf

Section 3.1.8.2 Changement du Canton (page 63 onwards)

Technically, yes. You should get permission first. But since it's pretty much automatic (as you say a formality) except in very specific instances, then usually just moving is OK.

In any case, your wife should not have a non EU permit. She should have an RU permit as she is your wife.

At first the OP's situation seemed a bit 'different' as Vaud and Zurich could fight for where he really resides for tax purposes. I assumed he would live in one canton while the family lived in another, and go back on the weekends... which is why I suggested informing first.

Now it seems he's actually really living and working in the same canton??? Not sure what's going on anymore.....
