Re: permit for a person without job , new EU

From what I collected from many posts in this forum, your boyfriend should be allowed to stay in Switzerland for 3 months without a permit to look for a job. If he doesn't get one meanwhile, he will have to leave the country and wait some time before being able to visit you again.

There is a Family Reunification system, but as far as I understood, it's for married couples.

Will give you threads on the topic. And answers from way more informed people.

As said above, it's going to be pretty pretty hard, especially that the companies won't bother doing application for Permis B for him unless he/she has special skills...

With the current economy context, it's quite a challenge....

He/she might even be better working in a EU country close to you, like living at the borders...

Re: permit for a person without job , new EU

I'm having difficulties understanding your query. Are you an EU citizen? Is the BF an EU citizen? What is new EU?

As EU citizens you can stay here for 90 days or longer for that matter as long as you have valid health insurance through a Swiss insurer.

I came in June (EU national) and my GF came along a few months later (also full EU member). I had a job and my employer did the paper work for me and within 2 weeks my B-Permit arrived. My GF went to the local commune office told them I was working and supporting her as well as paying for her health insurance through a local insurer (had of course the paper work) and got her B-Permit within 2 weeks. Her permit cost us a full CHF 37 excl postage

Getting a B permit for an EU citizen (at least where we're originally from - Nordics) is probably the easiest thing I have ever done. Try and get your health insurance in Paris - Now THAT's difficult (next to impossible)...

Re: permit for a person without job , new EU

Info for citizens of Bulgaria and Romania is here:

http://ec.europa.eu/eures/main.jsp?a...tions=1&step=2

We have successfully recruited one staff member with specialised qualifications from Romania, and are currently in the process of getting permission for a second one. The employer must be willing to jump through the hoops, and I can suggest that if your boyfriend has any qualifications, he gets those translated to German/French before he comes over, as having copies in one of the official languages will help him in his job search and with the visa application.

To 'prove' that we cannot find someone in Switzerland was not that difficult - the job must be placed with the RAV (unemployment authorities) for at least one month, and we also advertise in a few key places, and then we have a dossier to show the 'lack' of suitable applicants, and the merits of our prospective person.

They need specialist skills/experience, there has to be no-one in Switzerland who matches the criteria, and the employer has to pay a suitable salary which is checked by the authorities.

What she probably means with new EU is that she comes from one of the countries that more recently joined the European Union:



Meaning either Romania or Bulgaria, which joined in 2007. Or so I took it.

Re: permit for a person without job , new EU

I had similar experience with my gf (both of us coming from EU 27 - Romania). I have a B permit and my employer did all the paperwork for my partner also. The only difference is that I have "authorisation lucrative" on my B permit and she doesn't (it says "sans authorisation lucrative") which basically means that she can reside here but she cannot work. We discovered this accidentaly by comparing our B permits...

As we are not married she didn't get the same status as me which is quite unconvenient when applying for jobs (even if you have experience, good looking, speaking 100 languages, etc)...some recruiters are really interested in which type of "B" permit you have so it makes their life easier when "motivating" their decision...with or w/o authorization to work...so just take it into consideration when relocating here. It'e better to be married as he/she can get the same B permit type as you. In some cantons e.g. VAUD) he/she can get the same rights as you even though you're not married.

Good advice for heterosexuals. Gay partnership is not really equal to marriage when a foreign partner is involved. EU-passport is not so bad though. But imagine when people can't even get a partnership in their country of origin...
From what I could see and hear, when both are EU, it's mainly a question of money: total financial responsibility for each other with own money. Let the bank talk...
But as always with gay issues, one can experience just about anything, so asking pink cross is always a good idea.
