Project based B permit

Hi,
Does anybody know if there is a special code for a project based B permit? The code for regular B permit (for non eu) is 1402, i guess.but i also read a lot about this project based B permit but not much info on how to find out if a B permit is a normal one or a project based one.

Thanks in advance

My original B permit (1994) was linked to a company, I would have needed permission to change jobs.

Re: Project based B permit

Hi,
Just to add some more info if it helps getting the answer to my qu
ery. My first B permit approval (last year)letter says i am not allowed to change project and it was given that i can extend the permit for a maximum of 12 months at the time of extension for a delay or extension of my project(which i did recently without any problems). Now my question is whether mine is a project based B permit or a regular one? I can also assume that since every non EU B permit can only be extended for 1 year at the time of renewal and the same is given in my approval letter and hence mine can be a regular non EU B permit. I have read all the threads regarding non EU B permit but i could not get a clear answer for my question. I would request the experts here to please clarify my query.All my doubts are about my extension next year (if it will face any quota problems or if it will be a smooth one like this year). I got my L to B conversion last year.



Thanks in advance
HappyCreature

From the information provided it is obviously project based. I suspect you know that

Re: Project based B permit

Thanks SwissBob for your quick reply. I think i know...but all my collegues of my company(non eu) have been working on similar projects but they never had any problems with their B permit renewals.If mine is a project based B permit, can you please let me know of the chances of my extension next year? are there any guidelines for extensions of such permits? My project will be alive atleast for the next 2 to 3 years. does my employer has to convince the authorities again next year giving my importance in the project, criticality etc..etc... i had to go through this a little bit last year during my L to B conversion.

Also, is there a easy and more definite way of identifying a project based B permit from a normal one by looking at the B permit card or approval letter(although i do not have any of my collegue's approval letters to compare)

Thanks in advance

Re: Project based B permit

Hello Everyone,

I am new to this forum and need to know more information on the project based B permit.

I am a non EU and working in zürich from past 3 years. got a project based B permit valid until 2016 October.
I am trying for a job change within zürich and recently got a good job offer as well.

Now my question is

1. If I accept this new job offer can I get a B open permit?
2. How is my existing employer involved in this process.?

Please help me in this regard.

Thanks in advance.

A project based permit just serves its purpose i.e. it allows you to work only for that project. if you accept a new job offer, then it is the responsibility of your new employer to apply for your permit and this application will be treated as a new permit for Non EU which means it has to go through normal Non EU hiring process which means the employer has to prove that he cant find anybody from Switzerland / EU to do this job. have you informed your new employer about your current permit status? if yes, then only your new employer can tell you what they think about their chances to secure a new permit for you. normally employers have a fair idea about whether their application for Non EU will be successful or not.

about your other question, i think the current employer may be contacted at some stage to inform that your permit is being switched over to the new employer. this is the case if both the present and new employers are in the same canton. Please note there is only one Arbeitsamt per canton and it is the same office that approves or rejects your new employer's application for your permit that would have issued your current permit for the current employer.

cheers
