No.

I was between contracts when my B permit expired, it was not a problem. I supplied proof of payment of prior taxes, ticked the box saying I was not claiming social security, and all the other documents and that was enough.
When did you apply? Maybe they changed the rules due to recession making it more difficult to get C permit.

RE: I was not claiming social security: that is different from claiming unemployment benefits, right?

I think it may be related to the commune/gemainde in which you are living.
Is there a way to know which Gemaine's in Swiss German part are "very difficult" and which ones are more relaxed with these C permits or is it totally up to the immigration people and Gemainde has no influence? My Gemainde told me that they could submit my application without emploment contract but they tought that the immigration would come back and ask for the employment contract. But she also said that I could reapply later on again when I have a job. So maybe I should just try without an employment contract and if it is rejected, then apply again later on.... Would a rejection have an negative side effects on my application later on???

14 days, I think. Much of what you are asking has been covered on the forum so it might be a good idea to utilise the search function. You might even find info which you didn't think you needed.

No, it's the same thing. If you are claiming benefits then you will not be able to change permits - although this also appears (hearsay) to differ between areas - so you would get another B. As soon as you had an employment contract you would eb able to change to the C.

Oddly enough, that also differs: I looked at Dietlikon and it says 14 days...

Plus it also says it wants your Employment Contract if you are a foreigner.

I'm saying that it seems to vary from place to place. Unless you know where you are going and directly approach that particular Gemeinde yourself we can speculate all day what you are going to need and what your permit status will be.

Perhaps but the best way to settle it is to telephone the department that issues the permits and ask .. as I just did yesterday (Baselland) and was told that we would be automatically contacted a month before the B Permits expire, and that we had no option but to transfer to C permits. Not that we could see any reason not to. We are both EU citizens.

Re: C Permit eligibility - is employment absolutely necessary?

Ok, try looking at your current permit .. it will say who issued it, then look in the phone book. I can give you the number for the Baselland imigration amt but I don't think you are in this area?

Is this a government organisation? Also what does the treaty say about getting a C permit if one is between jobs but is eligible by time and is financially secure
