Is this legal?

Dear all,

another newbee question again.

I will got the B-permit (Non-EU) and I found a flat in Zurich and will be moving in a few weeks.

My flat is a short Untermiete for 6 months and is very small (25qm). I signed the contract as the only tenant. Although we are a unmarried couple, and we plan to use the flat as a foothold before we find bigger flats. She is EU-8 and I suppose she can stay the first 3 months in Switzerland without permit and perhaps also 3 months more with a job-searching permit.

My question is, do I have the right to let her use the flat during this six months? Will I get into trouble for registration?

Thanks in advance!

JR

Re: Is this legal?

the Swiss government is not interested in where your girlfriend stays while she is Switzerland. As long as she follows the laws pertaining to her stay allowance and work restrictions, you are not acting illegally. Having her in your flat might only be a problem if in your rental agreement you signed that you would be the only person living there. If you have legally bound yourself to being the only tenant, then you may need to have the contract re-written to include a second person.

Landlords usually want to know who's there. A letter declaring a frequent girlfriend visit - tell them she lives elsewhere - just so you're covered should be enough. Being open and communicative goes a long way.

at this point she would need to register an address.
