Need Explanation in B-Permit Extension clause

Hi Guys,
I received a letter from AWA office for my B-Permit renewal. I have been in the Schweiz since March 2007 and had 2 L-Permits and 2 B-Permits earlier. So now its my 3rd B-Permit extension.

So in the extension letter, there are these following lines:


Could somebody please tell me:
1. Can I change my employer? I want to leave my current employer and get directly hired by the same swiss company where I am currently working on project. (I know it says NO, but is there any workaround?)
2. What does 60Months and 6Years Context mean?

Thanks for you reply in advance.

Re: Need Explanation in B-Permit Extension clause

Can you someone help us what does this clause means. Whether the B permit is maximum only for 6 years and cannot be renewed.

Re: Need Explanation in B-Permit Extension clause

Good evening

The permit states that it is only valid with your current job, if you would like to change jobs you will probably have to apply for another permit. The validity is six months, it can be prolonged for maximally six years.

I hope I was able to be of assistance.

I heard that some immigration rules were changed recently. For instance, last time they took my biometric. The best way is asking migration authority directly.

Re: Need Explanation in B-Permit Extension clause

I also gave the biometric last week and waiting for the new permit. If i try to translate the statement it mentions that - the duration of the posting as per law and social security law to max of 6 years limited. after that right to stay in switzerland expires. As i have completed 4 years and moved on to the 5 years it states that new total is 60 months. which means i could get extended for another 12 more months and that will be the end of the stay in switzerland. I assume this is a new statement which is added not sure whether anyone also has got the same kind of information before and what happened would be helpful.

Project based permits do not include the right of access to the employment market. There is no workaround. Your new employer would have to sponser you and you may be required to leave the country while the permit process is carried out.

5 years is the maximum for which a project based B permit is allowed but a one off extension of a further 12 months is allowed if the employer can make a very good case for it.

Re: Need Explanation in B-Permit Extension clause

Thank you very much. 5 years of B-Permit allowed for project b-permit. Is it 5 years in B-Permit or 2years of L-Permit + 3 years of B-permit.
