US Citizen Applying for Permit

Hello Everyone,

I just accepted a transfer within my company from Chicago to Zurich. I'll be getting into the visa application in the next few weeks.

I've heard that it can take anywhere from 2-3 months, or even longer during 4th quarter. Does anyone have any experience with this. I'll be considered a local hire.

Thanks,
Maria

Re: US Citizen Applying for Permit

Your company should do everything for you. You just sign somewhere.

As it's towards the end of the year most places are low on permits for non-EUs so it could take some time.
I'm under the impression you may get an 'L' permit whereas normally you should get a 'B' permit with a permanent position. That said, you may get a B permit from the off.

Does this affect visa's as well? I'm applying for a long stay visa - I was going to apply in October - is it best to wait until December? Does this mean things start fresh from the start of the year?

Thanks in advance - sorry to go off topic - I browse most visa/permit issues to keep informed.

No. There is no quota system in place for visas.
