NonEu moving cantons, will residency Years Be reset back to Zero?

Yes i searched And just want to confirm a couple of things. Would appreciate the help

1. Is it correct that you can move cantons without your number of Years for getting a c permit don't get reset.
2. I Heard the extra procedure is to have a round of Interview with the migratioamt? Any gotchas?

Yes that is what is the word of mouth. I read the Vinta law and it does not say anything about moving cantons though

Wondering if anyone knows?

Hi



Have been in Switzerland for 7 years and I have moved kanton 3 times.
The years do not get set back on your B-permit. It is no problem with
moving kontons at all. You go to your current gemeinde and tell them that you will move and they will make a note on your permit. You will then have 30 days to notify your new gemeinde and they will issue you a new permit with your new address. You will need to bring with you the new rental contract and some kantons my ask for some other documentation. But it is easy and do not worry you will not be set back to zero again with your
years to apply for a C permit after 5 years of resident in Switzerland.

Just to add a side note.
This is info for EU. Not for Non-EU.

Edit : Sorry, didn't see the link.

Checked with the local kreisburo. They confirmed that a) the years dont get reset b) de-register before moving, register in the new canton, there will be an interview with migrationsamt and it should go fine as long as you dont have any criminal records.

1. Moving cantons has no impact on the residency requirement for getting a C Permit (5 years for EU-EFTA/US/CA and successful VINTA cases, 10 years for everyone else), and this does not matter if you are EU or non-EU). I myself am non-EU (US Citizen) and got my C Permit right on the 5 year mark despite the fact that I was registered in three different Cantons during those 5 years. If you are considering Swiss Citizenship, you may want to have a look at the cantonal and communal residency requirements of the new area you are moving into).

2. This is very Canton specific I suppose, I never had any round of interviews, and I had a non-EU L Permit when I first moved, and a non-EU B Permit when I moved the second time.
