L-Permit
 
Hello Friend,

Could anybody please share if they have any information regarding the availability of fresh L-Permit for Non-EU Citizens?

If you know someone whose Fresh L-permit application got approved/rejected recently (after July 2010), please share the information here.

This will help everybody to understand the current situation about the availability of L-Permits for Non-EU Citizens.

Thanks in advance.

How would your HR department know that then?

If you are talking about Zurich then they are mistaken.

Hi Swissbob,

May I ask how do you know this? and how accurate is it? (I'm in the L to B conversion process in ZH :D)

Thanks,

Chris

L to B conversion is a different matter altogether - all I'm saying is L permits are still being issued in ZH.

Re: L-Permit
 
Hi, so I work for an American bank and was just granted in the first week of September an L permit for my transfer from London to Zurich. I begin work next week and picked the Entry Clearance up at the London Consulate last week. For what it is worth, I was told that the B-permit quota for Aussies was exhausted in February. It took ages for the eventual L permit to be granted as I wasn't on their urgent list (was on sabbatical for 6mths). It was interesting though as last week I was in the Gemeinshaus registering in Seefeld in Zurich having just arrived and the lady there said that as I had an unlimited work contract i.e. I'm a local hire instead of on an expat package etc (was my choice to move to Switz), she expected that when she sent off my "Ermachtigung zur Visumerteilung", that my Ausweis would come back with a B permit and not an L permit in it. Music to my ears but I'm not holding my breath for it. I suspect that having already been approved for an L-permit, that that is exactly what I'll get. It certainly seems to me though that it is possible.

As a further note, I hear that if you know someone in the actual Gemeinshaus or somewhere in the local authority, there is a good deal of subjectiveness to the approval of respective applications.

Your profile says you are also a German citizen? If so, why on earth would you come to Switzerland as an Australian?

I'm not German. Am married to one but doesn't give me a passport unless I choose to give up the Aussie and live in Germany for 5 years or so. I'll check the profile as it shouldn't say that.

Anyone (Non-EU) received L permit for Zurich after October 2010
 
Hi,

Is it the case that anybody (Non-EU) received the L permit for Zurich canton after October 2010?
If yes, please share when you have applied and when you have received? Thanks.

Re: Anyone (Non-EU) received L permit for Zurich after October 2010
 
Hello, I am wondering if you ever clarified your question? My agency is telling me current processing times is about 4 months, does this correspond to your experience?

swisspea 17.11.2010 06:39

Re: Anyone (Non-EU) received L permit for Zurich after October 2010
 
Yes, up to 4 months sounds about right. It can take a bit longer if the process started just before or during summer...

As they say in the classics 'don't give up your day job'.

Non-EU L Permit along with Dependent Permit Processing Information
 
Hi Friends,

I am a NON-EU Citizen. My company applied for L work permit along with my dependent permit. The application was filled with Switzerland Immigration last month with all my documents. Currently legalization our marriage certificate is in progress. Once done, my company will submit all the required documents for my wife also.

Now in this situation, my question is/are:

1) Is it the case, Switzerland Govt. will not issue my WP until and unless my company submit the documents for my wife's dependent visa?
Note: All documents required for my WP is already been submitted to Switzerland Immigration.

2) Once the legalization is done, do anybody have any idea how long it will take to get my wife's dependent permit?

Thanking you,

With regards,
Awesome001.

No, it varies a lot.

Received L Work Permit Approved
 
Hi Friend,

Today I received the L work permit approved. I am a Non-EU passport holder.
Just want to share the information here. My company applied for my work permit on Nov 2010 and after almost 11 weeks, I received the permit.

Cheers,

Hi Campbell, I hope you have already received your B permit but thought you might like to know that the information you got about B permits for Aussies was incorrect - I received a B permit in September and I'm an Australian!
