Re: How long does it take to get B permit?

Welcome to the Forum.

The best we can do on here is for everyone with a B permit to give the answer which applied in their own case. I suppose you could then work out the average time.

While you are waiting for yours, you could search for something like 'time B permit' which will give you a few Threads asking similar questions which might give a few more options for you to add to the equation.

Hope all goes well.

Re: How long does it take to get B permit?

Mine took 10 months and that was being married to a Swiss, having a fulltime job, full criminal check etc etc.

Their excuse was simply that they had so many to process. Problem is you only have 12 months in which to change your drivers license over in which you need the permit to so...

Good luck !

Lets see if you can beat this :
We got our permits in 5 days and considering the fact that we come from Romania...it is quite a miracle

When the employer applied for my permit, they relayed to me that Bern said 6-8 weeks.

It took exactly 8 weeks. After that it was easy.

P.S. non-eu physically outside of Europe.

Non EU - it took 8 weeks, just as it was predicted. Hopefully you had all your t's crossed and i's dotted when you got it in, that's what kept us from any unexpected delays.

Re: How long does it take to get B permit?

American, took 2 months, but the time really depends on how fast the canton works. I'm in Zug. I believe each Canton demands different things and appears to be more strict with certain folks, depending on your qualification for the job, and although not stated, I believe COUNTRY OF ORIGIN.

Re: How long does it take to get B permit?

Related question: once you have confirmation from the authorities you get a B, how long until you actually get it? I was told it will arrive at my gemeinde, and they will send me a letter to go pick it up, but haven't got anything yet. The permit is valid starting June 1st and now is the 5th

Re: How long does it take to get B permit?

I think it depends on the Canton but I've been told mine will take about a week. I'll be applying for it when I arrive but I am am EU and I already have a job, just relocating.

4 days in Zurich is all it took once I got confirmation of all docs ok from Migrationsamt. They told me it would take 10 days. I called the Gemeinde after 4 days and sure enough it was there already, went and got it.

Re: How long does it take to get B permit?

But also I had to fill out the form and send it to the embassy, they didn't just know to send me the Visa. I'm in the States so might be different than your situation.
