Why do people write “as far as I know” then write something completely incorrect that takes 2 minutes to research?

Indeed. I know people who bought their home on arrival.

What? This is really new to me

When reading up on permits, I remember reading you need a C permit to buy property, hence the name “Settlement permit”.

I would like to apologize for my ignorance.

Hi IsIssieBelle - I came across your post here, and was wondering what did your daughter and partner finally decide to do? Do they live in one of the 2 cities and travel for daily work commute? My spouse and I start work in Switzerland in Zurich and Basel respectively. Hence, trying to plan accomodation there. Your inputs will be helpful!

The advice given originally still stands. I suggest you read the thread through and make up your own mind.

Since you're a non-EU national you don't have the choice of where you live, your permit requires you to live in the same canton as your workplace is based. If you want to live elsewhere then you/your employer would have to apply for a new permit from whichever canton to want to move to and there's no guarantee they would grant you one.

You will need permission from both Cantons. B permits are subject to quotas and if the Canton you want to move to doesn’t have them you are out of luck.

Some like Geneva are fairly laid back about people moving, but others are not. Tax revenues.
