L permit in Geneva, can live in another canton?

Hi.
This was surprising.
A non-EU with L permit, am I allowed to live in another canton other than Geneva?
I am confused about that according to unclear information that I got from many people / authorities.
Thanks in advance.

If your permit is tied to your employer (it'll have their name on the back of the permit) then no you can't. You have to live and work in the same canton as your employer is based.

Medea, are you sure that even permits tied to employers still have the employer's name on the back? I believe you can still be tied to your employer without their name on the back of the permit - the best idea is to call the authorities to find out.

I'm pretty sure the few B permits ones that are tied to employers do LiquidPaper so I guess the L permits would too. But as you say the Geneva canton migration office will know for sure.

L permits are tied to the employer. what i have been told was that you cannot typically stay in a different canton other than where you work.

Though the official channel would give you the final answer.
