Extending my work visa?

Hi EF,

Im Egyptian, and i currently have a work Visa that ends on the 31st of July. I want to go to germany there afterwards but unfortunately i cant apply to a schengen visa unlesss i do so from home country. My only option is to extend my current work visa so i can go there. The place at which im working now cant help me with that and told me to contact the fremdenpolizei (foreign police).

My question is:
Does anyone know where they are? how to reach them? their opening hours etc....?

Thanks!

Re: Extending my work visa?

Hi Egyptian,

You only need to go once, in person. They will tell you what documents you need, and then you send them through the mail. In fact they encourage people NOT to come back with the documents personally, as it wastes time and results in longer queues.

If you would still prefer to telephone or email them, the number and the email address are both on this page:
http://www.ma.zh.ch/internet/sicherh...e/kontakt.html

Note that you need to give them your personal "Referenz-Nummer" when you call/email them. It is printed on your residence permit.

By the way: they are much busier in the afternoon so if you can possibly take a morning off work to go there instead of leaving early, do that.

Assuming your employer can't or won't help because your contract ends at the same time as your permit then you cannot extend your work permit as you won't have a contract on which to base it
