Non Eu Changing job

Hi all,
I got a new offer in zurich. So i resigned my previous job and my new company applied for a permit in December. Currently i am jobless. How long will it take to get a new permit? In the contract my work starts from Feb1. Will i get the approval before that. I am here in switzerland for 4 years first 2 years in L permit and the next 2 years in B permit. When i enquired here in the gemeinde they said i can change employer. In my perrmit it is written as "need approval for self employment". It really makes me soo uncomfortable to sit here jobless from November. So please can u share the possibilty of getting my permit approved or rejected.

Thanks for ur time...

Re: Non Eu Changing job

Have you talked to your new employer ? Have you or they contacted the Migrationsamt in Zurich ? For a non-EU it can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to months. They may be waiting on additional information from the employer. Or it could be sitting on someones desk somewhere.

Here is a most excellent link right here on EF:

Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

Good Luck!

Hi,
Yes we talked with the new employer. They have asked an agency todo the job and have no updates from the agency so far.
Now since my permit is also going to end by january, i am so worried about what todo. will i get the approval from the canton or not?

Re: Non Eu Changing job

Asking on a this forum if your permit will be renewed or not, is like going HERE: http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~ssanty/cgi-bin/eightball.cgi.

Seriously, you really need to go to the source. If your employer can`t (or won`t) give you a response, I would go down to the Migrationsamt office myself and ask.

Well, I am afraid nobody can give you the exact feedback.
I mean; i am at the same boat. Waiting my permit to be prolonged, but without change of employer. I have got feedback from my agency, "that the case proved itself to be already a challenge", well, not nice news, but they used to tell this almost to all of our non-EU employees, every time they start new application

The time you apply (beginning of the year) gives you more chances comparing to the case, if you would apply at the end of the year.
Other aspects are very specific (sector, salary, employer, etc), do not think there is a general approach to assess your chances.

in our company several times people got "refusals", but then our consultant appealed and got "positive" answer, however with some restrictions to employees (like one was told that this is his last "2 years B", and please no application in the future for renewal). but I believe one can apply again and argue that circumstances changed (position, salary, experience, etc)

Anyway, good luck with your application!

Re: Non Eu Changing job

even though i was on a restricted B permit for more than 3 years but still change of employer is difficult. So i think my new employer is going to apply for a new permit rather than a change of employer. Moreover being beginning of new year chances of approval is high. Finally it all depends on the good will of the Arbeits Amt and your luck. So i wish you best of luck.

Renewal of existing permit needs no quota availability.

Please keep us updated about the latest happenings.

thanks

Stop confusing the op.

This is not a new application but a transfer of a B permit from one employer to another. The op is not asking if but when the change will be made.

The OP should take a copy if the new employment contract along to the local town hall and explain the situation. Engaging an agent was a mistake . The local town hall pluscthe new employer should be able to progress this between them.

Re: Non Eu Changing job

Hi,
Change of employer was rejected for us. So our company reaplied it as a new application through an agency.

Re: Non Eu Changing job

Rejection of change of employer indicates that you had a restricitive B permit . So best is to apply for a new permit.But unlike change of employer new permit may take a longer time and start by 01.02.2011 could be difficult. I wish u good luck with that.

Re: Non Eu Changing job

Hi,
Does New application mean we fall in the quota system?
