Questions re CE Pemits

All,

Hello! I am relocating from Asia to Zurich later this year. I am a British National and so is my entire family. Reading on the net, it seems my firm will be applying for a CE permit (a type of B Permit, I believe) for me.

Unfortunately my HR is based in Switzerland and I am not getting much info from them. I wanted to know how long would it take to get this permit considering we are EU nationals and our employer is a Swiss bank as well.

Would be grateful for inputs.

Regards

The company does not apply for the permit for you. You do when you arrive. Bring your work contract. It takes about 4-6 weeks to get the permit but you can work as soon as you register.

Ok. I was under the impression that the permit had to be applied for and then only could I and the family enter Zurich and me work

Re: Questions re CE Pemits

Are you a British National (Overseas) or a British Citizen? That's a big difference.

1. Travel to Switzerland
2. Register at your local authority with your passport, work contract, rental agreement, passport pictures and the fee (depends on how many of you there are).
3. Wait.
4. Receive B permit (EU/EFTA) in the mail.

Many thanks

We all will be staying in serviced apartments for 3-4 weeks so will it be the local authority of the serviced apartment? Also there will be no rental agreement initially

Yes. You register there. There should be a rental agreement. You'll need it to register. If it's owned by the company they will need to prove a letter for you to bring to the commune.

There will likely be a letter of agreement between your company and the rental agency who owns the property where you'll be named as the guest. That's what we used.
