Canton approved permit C, waiting for Bern!!

I just called the "Service de examan" and been told the my C permit has been approved by the canton of Geneva, file transferred to Bern and should receive a letter within 1 week.

Does anyone knows what happens when file is transferred to Bern and how long it takes from there?

I have been waiting for this renewal since July 2010, so it's nearly 1 year

As far as I learned from my friends in canton Vaud, it's definitely approved and you will get it in 2-3 months time, so no rush

The file is not transferred to Bern until all the required documents have been submitted.

I was told that it can take upto 6 months to receive permit C, however, it depends on individual case and nationality.

Re: Canton approved permit C, waiting for Bern!!

After Geneva told me they approved my C permit, i got a letter yesterday for biometric registration, so i called to arrange an appointment and went today, after finishing the process and paying, i asked how long will my C permit be valid for and if i have to inform my employer to adjust the taxes, the woman looked to her screen in confusion and told me i got a B permit not C

I don't how this being treated, but i were told 1 year ago that my permit is gonna take longer as i'm entitled to a C permit, they had an examination service treating my file for 1 year, asking for every single kind of documents and they send me a letter saying i passed the examination and my file been transferred to Bern, only to find out i got another B permit after 1 year.....this is so frustrating and dis-motivating

As far as i know the lady in the biometric registration does not see your permit type. Talk to the commune. If it's really a B permit then tell the commune that there is a mistake. Good luck.

My frustration is based on one simple fact, did they really spend 1 year to decide wether i stay in CH or not as it seems to be the case?, not actually having a C permit

I have a 6 years old daughter, job, speak local language, very integrated and so many Swiss friends would recommend me, still they thought if i should stay here or not

Maybe it's not you, it is where you originate from. I don't know if this is the case, but it could be.

Was she a lady in Migrationsamt who takes fingerprints and pictures?

It seems they all decrease the level of all permits by one. The same answer was given to people who waits for conversion from L to B permit. A lot of my co-workers who asked about it got the same answer.

BTW they are probably seeing only your current permit in the computer. In our case she answered about L permit when the decision about type of permit wasn't made yet.

This is taking a very long time, very strange. When I went for my C Permit, I was told it could take up to 3 months. I got it in the post in 3 weeks.

Did you specifically ask for a C permit, or did you just assume they would change it after 5 years? AFAIK, you must write stating specifically that you want the C permit on your extension form.

Re: Canton approved permit C, waiting for Bern!!

I were actually told by them that in the system it's mentioned that this renewal should be to a C permit and it would take a longer time to process due to that fact.
