hi, i think the swiss system is actually quite corrupt when it comes to issuing permits to foreigners.
Probably the least corrupt process in officialdom . Just because you don't like it doesn't make it corrupt.

I tend to agree. I've yet to see an evidence of corruption here except the 'regie' for housing in Geneva. They are not corrupt but have attained a status of mafia..

In my own experience I would put Singapore as most un-corrupted country

Re: B permit, spouse work

Hi Bjaga,

If you get a B permit your wife can automatically start working. There will be no major paper work involved that will delay her start of work. My husband and me are both non EU. I got married and came here on his B permit and got a job in less than 2 months. It is by no means similar to the H4 VISA issued for the spouse where it is a pain to work for the spouse. Feel free to PM me for any questions you have if you find my case similar.

Hope this helps.
AS

I have the impression that it also depends on your 'source country' - We are Australian and we got L permits for 2 years, then B permits.

I have met plenty of Indians who got similar - L permits for 2 years, and not all were awarded a B on the third year, some were cut loose and sent home.

I've met a few from the US who managed to get B permits straight-up but some were on limited contracts in very big multinationals - 2-3-4-5 years then return home...

I would personally plan for the worst - a lot of wives end up here not being able to work for 2 years. In Zurich a lot of them also seem to end up having children over that time, and it's a tough period, but I guess rewarding if you are planning to have children...

You won't know if it's an L or B permit for three months after you arrive...the authorities generally won't tell you...the whole B/L is a very sensitive issue for all new arrivals...so you can't wait until the permit is issued, then make up your mind later...
One thing I must say is that people have their own guesses for the criteria. I had one such guess but reading the different posts I can say that nothing is sure.

Issuing permits depends on your source country - you have one example and I have another contradicting the same.

So far the only satisfying answer is on the quota.. I 'guess' they are issued by quota..

Re: B permit, spouse work

I don't think the B permit has anything to do with nationality. I'm also non EU and got a B permit with a permanent contract right away. Good luck with your wife and check www.jobup.ch for job postings.

Re: B permit, spouse work

Im a soon to be spouse of a German who is a resident here. Im graduate of high school. I stepped into college..well, many colleges and universities but never graduated. I was dealing with depressions and perhaps my family was just "enabling" me and kept sending me to schools as a sort of therapy but i just couldnt focus so ended up flunking my subjects or i would tell them i dont like the course anymore and they spoiled me. The last school was unknown and i was aware of it and me and my fiance agreed it wont be of any use anyway so i quit again.

As far as occupation, ive "worked" only in our family businesses so i have very limited knowledge about that world. Now that im here bound to be a housewife, id like to know my options for part time work. Ive checked the links provided above but am not quite enlightened with things.

Am i qualified to go into training? I can list a university and a college where i studied for around 2 years each. Theres more schools but i didnt get all my papers.

Is there a total number of units from college, can that total be a combination of both schools or not? Are there exams i would have to take maybe to validate my academic status?

Im not sure how long i would have to wait for my B permit after wedding. While waiting, can i do housekeeping, petsitting (i intend to take up courses) privately? what else should i be aware of(legalities/requirements) before i accept offers or apply?

Thanks so much for reading, id appreciate any help, any opinion.

No idea what you're on about there.

You can't work without the B permit - you spouse should be able to do everything required this end so when you arrive it shouldn't take too long to get the permit.

Re: B permit, spouse work

Hi swissbob and thanks for feedback. Im already in swiss with visa D and residence permit. I want to know if i can do small jobs like dog walking, cleaning etc part time.

Someone posted a link where they give info how to be a "trainee" here in swiss and i didnt quite understand it. Like if they require a number of college units or a number of years in college to be admitted as a trainee, I read if from Japan only graduates are accepted (as an example). Those kind of issues.
