Advise on B permit renewal

Dear all,

We would like to have your opinion about the following situation.

We have been living in Switzerland for 3 years. Recently my husband's company has extend his contract for one more year and has applied to extend our permits. We are currently under a B-permit (Ausbildung mit Erwerbstaetigkeit) and he works as a post-doc.

Initially, we came for 1.5 years and his contract and permit were extended for 1.5 years more. HR has mentioned that an additional extension might be problematic and could be refused.

On the other hand, I just have obtained an EU passport because I recently became a Spanish citizen. Our previous and current B permits have been granted for non-EU citizens (i.e. Venezuela).

Now, shortly after the renewal was requested by my husband's company, we have provided this information (that I am citizen from Spain) to immigration.

* Could somebody advise which could be the outcome of our extension request (approved or rejected)?

* Which type of permit would immigration issue in this case? Only myself have EU nationality, my kids and husband are non-EU. I do not work.

Thank you in advance, IM

As you are dependant on your husband your permit will be based on his althopugh you will most likely be issued an EU permit. In this case it will be an L permit.

Why L permit? It seems that L permits are short-term. What about a B permit for 5 years?
