Handing in residence permit temporarily

Hi all

With an B or C permit, you can hand in your permit for a short-ish time while you leave Switzerland temporarily.

Does anyone know the rules or have a link please?

I have a 5 year EU B permit

Cheers

Hold Permit in left hand. Take magnifier in right hand. Read back page.

This tells me it expires after 6 months residence abroad: it doesn't say anything about "parking" my permit with the Gemeinde for the duration.

For example, don't the authorities need to know for tax (eg no income in this period), perhaps to claim RAV on return to Switzerland

Thank you for the reply, but it doesn't answer my question...

It says nothing about "parking" your permit because that's your idea, not Switzerland's.

If you de-register, you can return within six months and not lose your permit status. You will need to pay all taxes due before leaving. As to taking a six month break/holiday and then claiming unemployment on your return, you can always dream...

To paraphrase, you say I have to *de-register* and then *register* again?

Have you done this yourself?

Re: Handing in residence permit temporarily

I found it here by changing my search terms (again!)

- Leaving/stopping residency temporarily
- Permit C and leaving Switzerland temporarily

No de-registration necessary

Re: Handing in residence permit temporarily

On the back of my 'C' Permit it states I must deregister within 2 weeks of moving (Verb = abmelden).

You must go to the office personally, and hand in the Permit.

If I leave for longer than 6 months I will lose my permit.

If I ask for an extension in writing, within the first 6 months, it can be prolonged for up to 4 years.

Once the Cantonal Migrationsdienst know you have left, no more tax will be charged while you are away.

This is for my C permit, not for a B permit.

Actually ... maybe. It depends on whether the person is maintaining a residence in Switzerland - if the address is kept then deregistering is not required.

Yes, I will keep address and Swiss insurance(s) so why would I deregister?

I can't find my "living and working in Switzerland" which mentions it, so I asked here...

Unless you supply full information at the start, you are not going to get a correct answer. Heading the thread "Handing in residence permit temporarily" - ie deregister, one assumes that is what you want to do...

I agree that I could have given more, but I can't edit my own posts yet.

However "temporarily" is not "permanently leaving Switzerland"
