Moving to Germany for internship while holding swiss student B-permit

I have received an internship offer from a company in Stuttgart for 6 months. Its a voluntary internship(not part of my course) and I am still enrolled as a student.

I want to ask if I can keep my swiss student B-permit(valid Sept, 2013 end) while I work on internship in Germany for 6 months. My insurance company has told me that I must continue to pay my swiss health insurance while I goto Germany, otherwise I have to surrender my Swiss permit. This also means that I cannot take formal exit from canton. Does anyone knows if it is legal to do like this ?

Re: Moving to Germany for internship while holding swiss student B-permit

Non-EU folks have to be very cautious with that stuff.

And the answer to your request is, if you plan to stay abroad on a student-B permit for 6 months, possibly even without a legal address in CH:
Hell no, you cannot.


Please have a look on this thread (i.e. use the search function, if you can):

B permit holder leaving swiss for 4 months


Anyhow,

I am a non-EU and I have just finished my Masters in Swiss university in Ticino. Also, my student permit renewal is still under progress.

This was your situation on last Wednesday, as you stated.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I still haven't received my B-permit but I am expected to receive in few days (there is no reason that they will not give it to me).

I had obtained this temporary 3-month schenegan visa from canton authorities (for 100 CHF-) and thats how I could go to stuttgart.

I am still living on valid address in Switzerland ? (my room contract with university is valid until Sept also and I donot have to pay when I go abroad for more than 3 months)

As I read the thread you refferred, it basically says that if I want to stay abroad for 6 months on my B-permit
- I must inform authorities in my canton
- I must have a valid B-residence permit with a valid address in Swiss while abroad
- I must pay my health insurance while abroad

Aren't these the only conditions or have I missed something ? Thanks again for your inputs.

Your very weak point in both of your situations is that neither one of you (maybe you still more than e.kazemi, plus he doesn't even have a Swiss address) meet the reason for the permit issue.

Kazemi could get, with an address and/or physical presence in CH, another permit for looking for a job after finishing his studies,

and you, being still enrolled in your uni (right?) could "officialize" your internship in Germany by your university, wouldn't you?


True that you have a B-permit, but it's a student's one. I think that practically it's up to you if you ever do any exam or not, but at least let yourself grant the OK from your uni with regards to your Germany experience (sounds as if they wouldn't even know about your plans), so that the given permit reason could still be valid.

Countries like the USA, France, Portugal, Switzerland, give permits to come to their countries, to work, to live etc. Of these countries I have mentioned, and most are like this, it is so you can do that. If you then want to leave for a period of time, then you don't need a Permit to be here.

So, from my experience, and the places I have been to, you are allowed to leave for short holidays, family matters, illnesses, and emergencies. You are not allowed to leave without permission for extended stays elsewhere.

That is what you are missing.

Re: Moving to Germany for internship while holding swiss student B-permit

What he's missing is that it is neither a pleasant nor an easy task to give on opinion on difficult issues if
  • OPs don't share sufficient info up from the beginning but give it in drops, dropje voor dropje; to the point that one suspects heavy language problems - wtf how can that be, if they got their masters done in CH
  • even after apparent problems in understanding by users (me in this case) no real answer, bypassing the point.
Maybe I still get it wrong, which might be a result of my poor English (so sorry),


but as a matter of fact I think that OP gets his 6 months search-a-job-after-uni degree now in March, valid of course until next September, found a job in Germany.
No problem with that, OP could have helped the stupid ones like me to understand it quicker; easy answer: if no one finds out you left the country you get away with it.

With regard to the fact that there is a reason why relatively few persons like giving answers here (i.e. delicate situation, precise info might have heavy impact on OP's life so better thinking it over twice, language barriers from both sides and in both directions, admin stuff in Swiss languages, users' English e.g.), it's up to OP to get really stupid or quite good info instead.

Remains the problem with 3 months Schengen and no working permit for a 6 months internship in Germany, but who knows. I won't ask again.

Also if it could be interesting what is written exactly on those search-for-a job-after-university permits (B-Study/Education?).
