Work

I am not an EU citizen, but am holding a 5 years resident permit from Italy.
I had a Swiss farmer friend that lives in fribourg and he told me to come and start Working for him.
So my question is, what type of document does he need to provide for me?

I could be wrong but Resident Permit does not mean that you will be treated as a EU Citizen. Only a EU Passport works. So you will be treated as Non-EU and same rules will apply.

Re: Work

Unless you apply for family reunification in Switzerland, right now an Italian permit or the Swiss wife will not help you much.

You could search what possibilities there are for seasonal workers? I´m sure there must be some clause for people who come here to help with harvests, during ski season etc?

Re: Work

Although I suspect the rules are somewhat different to this for farm workers this does show how difficult it can be to get a permit.

https://www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home...zulassung.html

You can't get a permit yourself, he would have to apply for one for you and meet whatever the conditions are for getting said permit.

Unless your wife is prepared to move to Switzerland and apply for a family reunification permit for you (she has to prove she can support you as her dependent and that the accommodation is big enough for both of you to get one) there's nothing in your situation which will help you.

Re: Work

It may not be impossible, but it's down to your farmer friend to sort out the necessary permit for you. Who knows, there may be a shortage of farm workers and it will be very easy for him to get a permit on your behalf. But he's the one who has to approach the authorities and give his reasons for hiring you instead of someone who already lives here and has a valid permit.

And don't let your friend fool you by saying he's applied, but it's okay for you to come and start working while you await approval. It isn't. If he says it is then ask him for a copy of the permit approval letter which will come from here:

Service de la population et des migrants
Section main d’œuvre étrangère
Route d’Englisberg 11
1763 Granges-Paccot
tél .: +41 26 305 24 86
fax : +41 26 305 24 82

If he can't produce it then you don't have permission to live/work here.

Why aren't you together then?

If so, she would have to be living in Switzerland in order for you to obtain a residence and work permit through marriage & you would have to prove you share the same address. You cannot work in Switzerland on just an Italian residence permit...

Your farmer friend would also have to prove that he could not hire locally or within the EU in order to obtain one for you. Sadly, people are clamouring for work now and I'm sure it is impossible.

Re: Work

I good friend of mine in a very similar situation:

* NON-EU
* Swiss wife (from Basel)
* Residence in Italy
* IT professional

was unable to work here due to what Medea mentioned. Your wife would need to start the reunification process, and for that to work, she would need a job here and prove that she can cover all costs including accommodation.

Since his wife knew she wouldn't be able to get a high enough salary, my friend needed to go through the NON-EU process. It took him almost a year, once they moved here and his wife registered, after a year or so, they were able to change his permit to the family reunification one.

It's hard to believe, but unfortunately, it is the way it works for NON-EU.

Re: Work

My wife is living here in Switzerland, but the problem is that she has lost her job due to the current situation, talking about family reunion; we have done that already but didn't succeed due to her job issue and that is why am like trying to find another alternative.
