Dependent B permit Conversion to Independent

Hello,

My Friends husband and wife are indians, Husband got B permit from Jan 2012(Primary) and wife has dependent B WP.Both are working as of now . Husband employment is going to cut down by end of June 2012 due to some budget problems with client. However Wife's company is ready to apply a independent permit if husband loses permit.
Both B permits valid till Dec 2012, Both are on payroll of Swiss companies.

So in this case:
Q1:how much chances are there that if wife's company files a independent B WP for her she will get it and becomes Primary and husband will become dependent on her .

Q2 :If this happens does husband has to go back to India for sometime, and if yes for how much time

What will be the process in this case. Kindly share your expert knowledge and experiences.

Re: Dependent B permit Conversion to Independent

Hi

I would highly recommend you to directly go to Kanton Zurich Labor department (AWA) office and enquire about these questions.

Although there are chances that if wife's current company files for her independent WP then her husband may conver to her dependent. Please have a look at the below link for more details,

If the wife is working the permit is in all likelihood already independent (unless it is some sort of 20% time job)

No.

The AWA does not permit this specific switch since they are aware of many folks (especially Indians on B Permits) trying this. Ofcourse this is case-2-case dependent.
