Re: Applications for by internet?

Probably because they like to see people in person, but also possibly because you're applying from Poland. There are quota limits for B permits for people from Poland. Here's the official notice:

"The Federal Council decided on 18 April 2012 to invoke the safeguard clause provided for in the Agreement between Switzerland and the EU on the free movement of persons, applying it to the EU-8 Member States (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, and Hungary).
From 1 May 2012, category B residence permits granted to citizens of these countries will be subject to quotas. This measure is to remain in force for a year and applies to persons who come to live in Switzerland to become self-employed and to persons who possess an employment contract in Switzerland that is valid for a year or more."

So, unless you already have a job here, you won't be able to rent anywhere.

Good thing they have this forum then? And not all expats have that level of grammar.

I seriously think that most expats don't even reach this level.
