B-Permit and success and good news!

Hello,

I have been reading the advice and experiences of people on the forum regarding visas. I was a bit nervous about this subject, as I saw that many had encountered some tough obstacles in this.

I am reporting that I had a smooth and easy experience to get my B-permit and the person who handled my case at Imigration Office was fantastic!

She answered my questions, gave good advice. I had another question that I remembered after leaving her office. I sent her an email on last Friday. This morning at 8h05 I got an answer from her. She was superfast.

Impressive!

Congratulations!

What were the questions and answers - if it isn't too personal? Any info you can share might help someone else in a similar situation, and save the nice Migrationsamt lady a couple of emails.

Congrats - I think - but the two things are unrelated .

Congrats for your update.

But are you EU or Non-EU Passport holder?

Re: B-Permit and success and good news!

I am a non-EU, but married to a Swiss. So I am permitted to work anywhere in Switzerland. She told me this in the interview and I was very happy.

Can't remember all the questions I asked her.

On this site I had read that if you put B permit on your CV and it is outside your canton, then it can create some problems

So I wrote her the email and asked how I would convince a possible employer that even if I have a B permit, I have the extra priviledge.

She answered me in German (so clever) as then I can print this email and show it to the possible employers, if they hesitate due to the B on my permit.

I obtained my entry visa for Switzerland in Denmark in early November 2010. I arrived on 11.12.2010 and registered at Kommune and Immigration the following Monday. I received my invitation for this meeting the Friday (4 days later) and the date was for 10 Jan 2011. I was told the card would arrive 14 days later. Hold on........ it came 4 days later!

Been married to Swiss hubby for 5 years now and was already registered in the Civil Register for marriages 5 years ago. (It may have helped speed things up.)

Hope this gives a better picture.

I wish you all success with your applications and meetings for your Permits.

You can stop there. Your rights are set in stone and shouldn't come as a surprise.
