Limited non-EU, B permit?

Has anyone heard of this? I was under the impression that I would get a basic L after getting rejected for a 5 year B, but according to the docs from Bern, it says a B and then next to it has 18 months. The Kreisburo has informed that it will take up to 3 months to get the actual permit.

Is it common to get a limited B? My employment contract was permanent, but after getting rejected for a B, the employer changed my contract to a temporary one and was able to secure a permit for me based on the temporary contract.
What does all this mean? Are my chances good of getting it extended after say 12 or 18 months on a limited B, and my employer says to the authorities that they want me on a permanent contract, that I will be able to stay here after 18 months? Again, it is a B but next to it has 18 months written.

Re: Limited non-EU, B permit?

My employment contract is also permanent. But, Iam issued with a limited B (36 months). "Bewilligung B Befristet" (max. 36 Monate). Similar situation like yours, what will happen after 3 years ? I think as long as you have gainful employment and company needs you, the permit maybe extended / renewed ?

Looking forward for comments.

cheers...

Yes,

When you get your B permit you receive usually a "befristet" B, in my case it was a 2 year B, is like a test period, if after that period you keep your job and don't have problems you'll get a yearly renewable B..

Re: Limited non-EU, B permit?

Now we are getting somewhere Some positive news. It took over two months to get my permit and as I mentioned, it was rejected the first time as the authorities said "2 years of professional experience does not warrant a B permit" but now I am in the "system"

Another question comes to mind. Since it is a limited B, does it count towards my days spent in Switzerland? As a Canadian, I need 5 years on a B and then I can apply for a C.

That is nowhere near usual.

Nope. "Trial period" time-limited B is not and never has been standard procedure.

It's quite obvious you didn't do any research and blabber at everyone as if you know everything.

This statement borders on an personal attack, and that is a not permitted on public postings on EF. So I suggest you choose your words more carefully in future, especially as Shorrick MkII has proven to be one of the more credible posters on this forum. Take it as a warning.

In any case, this thread is a good candidate for recycling, as the OP has failed to use the search function.

Hello Shorrick,

What are the consequences of getting this type of B permit? After 24/36 months, is there a chance of the permit getting renewed?

Sure I'd love to get a C permit someday, but as long as I am able to stay and work in Switzerland, that's fine.

Maayong buntag Chip,

Under the old law which expires Jan 1st, 08 the three-year maximum stay B could be extended once for another three years (note I am talking about duration of stay, not the yearly "renewal" which you do anyhow).

Once you reached the end of the extension, you basically had to apply for an unlimited-duration B permit; this application was treated somewhere between an ab-initio application and a B renewal depending on where, when and who.

There are also other implications in that these permits are usually delivered linked to a specific employer *and* position and save for exceptional circumstances employer change is difficult.

I haven't had time to look in detail at the new prescriptions unfortunately...

On another unrelated point, there's still a chilled San Mig to be had

Magandang hapon Shorrick!

Thanks for the clarification above. I can breathe easy now, or at least until my three years are up and my employer, or myelf, have to apply for another permit.

About your San Mig, unfortunately I get awfully thirsty during the past couple of Sundays here, and seeing no Coop open, had to make use of what's available in the fridge. Will ask the wife if she can handcarry a couple of cans for us, noh?
