Permission to get a "B permit" validity

How long the permission to get a "B permit" is valid?
Another words, how much time can pass between getting this permission (applied in the country of residence) and applying for actual "B permit" in Switzerland?
Thanks

Re: Permission to get a "B permit" validity

Sorry for being a bit vague. Is it possible to apply for permit approval by the whole family (I, wife and kids), but I will relocate first, and my wife and kids will move after 2-3 month. Could they loose the approval of their permit application if they arrive in Switzerland after such period?

Re: Permission to get a "B permit" validity

I'm a EU citizen, as are all members of the family. Work provided me visa information/help as part of the relocation package.

In my case, the law firm said that I could do nothing before being in the country. Then the important thing was to to register *before* starting work. The place to register is wherever you are living (Kreisbuero for Zurich, Gemeinde/Stadthaus otherwise, at least for Zurich).

Registration was quick and painless, and cost money , as is usual in Switzerland
- passport
- copy of work contract
- copy of rental contract
(passport photo not needed, as they (well Kreisbuero 4) have webcam style cameras for photos)

The law firm also told me that I could do nothing for my family until they were physically here. Again, registration is simple and again costs (a little) money:
- passport/ID card for each family member
- rental contract

So to reply to your question, I believe (going on my experience with an EU passport) you cannot apply for a permit until arriving here. But permits for "family regroupment", when the family decides to follow, are not a problem.

Lastly, I got a termp B permit immediately (when registering) and then the real thing a couple of weeks later.

Re: Permission to get a "B permit" validity

I am a "third-state national", and, as far I see, I need to apply for 'Work Permit approval' before getting entry clearance (visa) and entering the country, where I can apply for actual permit http://www.bfm.admin.ch/content/dam/...eber4mte-e.pdf
The question was is it possible for my family to relocate on the basis of my 'Work Permit approval' after 2-3 months after me without getting into reunification procedure, just as dependants. As I investigate this issue, it seems less and less possible. It is a pity!

Looking at my authorization (a dependent, applied for at the same time as my husband's permit), it was issued in mid-June last year and would have expired in October - a little under 4 months after it was issued. "Diese Ermächtigung erlischt am: 18.10.2011"

So, based on that, it seems possible? I would call your embassy or consulate, however, and check about visas. (Work Authorization gives the embassy or consulate clearance to give you an entry visa, and then you register for the permit when you arrive here. Also, you are not guaranteed a B permit as non-EU, but you can do a search on here about that)
