L-permit for EU (Latvia) / Urgent advice needed!

Hi all,
I am from Latvia, holder of EU passport. When I just came here I went to the Service de la population, Vaud to ask if I have to register my arrival. They said no. I have to come back only when I meet one of these criteria:1. job; 2. studies; 3. marriage.
My first 3 months are nearly expired and I havent found a job yet. What's the possibility for me to get any permit here (without meeting criteria above)? Am I eligible for L permit? I've read about this permit on many websites, but I dont really understand under what circumstances might I get it?

Thanks for any help!

(1) Zero; (2) no, not unless you meet one of these criteria (or have a partner here); see 2.

Londine, apologies, I was wrong, apparently this:

http://www.bfm.admin.ch/content/bfm/...weiz/eu-8.html

does not apply to L-permits (yet)..

re: obtaining one (L), I think you can get one as a job seeker, provided that you can prove that you have the financial means to support yourself in the meantime... I don't know for how long or what exactly can serve as 'proof' but I hope this helps..

I hope someone else from EU-8 on EF can be of more assistance..

Aleydis, thats a good news for me!
Really confused about all the rules here. I've been living in a few countries before I arrived in Switzerland and it was not so complicated about the papers.
Hope I will find a solution.

Thanks a lot again!

If you have been here for 3 months and have a lot of money to support yourself, you should be eligible even for permit B. If I was you, I would go back to Lausanne and ask them persistently to give that piece of paper. Good luck.
