Is it possible for temporary residence permit with NON Swiss company?

Hi,

This is my first post although I've read plenty of yours. I think it might be an easy one for you and not the answer I want but here goes.

I am an Australian passport holder working in the EU and I'm wondering if it's possible to live with my boyfriend (Swiss national) and pay my taxes to the canton, without benefits IF my company is non-swiss?

I understand that it's strict to live here however right now I can only be here 90 days (EU & Schengen) in total out of 180 and clearly I would like to be here longer.

I have read all the visa types and it doesn't seem possible but I thought if anyone could offer advice or help - you could.

Thanks in advance.

When you say "non Swiss company" you mean a company outside of Switzerland?

Basically, no. A company outside of Switzerland can not sponsor and nonEU person to live in Switzerland.

Thank you for your quick response.

Yes the company is outside Switzerland - it's the answer I expected I am not ready to give my job up yet so really, if I do want to move in with my boyfriend, my only other option to try to find a job here in Switzerland under Permit B rules?

Does anyone know any good websites for this ie Swiss companies looking for people from abroad when they can't find the right person internally?

There are no such websites. You are looking at a very difficult up hill battle. What kind of work do you do?

This is where it's difficult! I worked in radio (in Australia) for 8 years (anything you can think of on and off-air) and now am a Tour Manager in Europe (taking tour groups around 7-18 countries per tour) - so nothing that can help a Swiss company in anyway

Thank you for your help.

That's what I was thinking but wasn't going to say it. Sooo, why doesn't he move to where you are?
