B permit process

So being a rather nosey/inquisitive person perhaps someone could explain what process happens when applying for a B permit
I went to the Kreisbüro Zurich 3, completed the new arrivals/residence permit form, they copied my EU (British) passport, my work contract, (no end date) and my apartment rental agreement.
I have seen that there are varying times for them to issue a permit but am curious what they do with the details in the meantime, in case it matters I am British, single, first time in Switzerland, no criminal record etc.

Re: B permit process

To be honest it is pretty painless. It only takes a matter of a few days and you will get a letter asking you to pick it up. But as suggested above just read one of the more detailed threads.

Re: B permit process

I was informed by migrationsamt recently that it takes about a month.

Re: B permit process

Can't you get your employer to do it for you? Mine did, and they are sorting everything for me, but it was in the contract...

You still have to personally go to the local authorities and register though

To verify your identity, that you are you. Like in my passport theres a number somewhere that says how many other people in my country have the exact name as i do. SO they have to get info on the parents as well.

Ah, ok.. Didn't know. Thanks for clarifying.

I have just sent the questionnaire return to my new company and they said they would take care of it... Btw, how much does it cost? I heard that it was quite expensive, but as I'm not paying for it I have no idea...
