the butler has no particular reputation at present
Am I entitled to a B-permit?

Good day to all.I am a new member and I would like to ask if anyone can help me to explain about the B permit in Swiss.I am currently employed in one of the diplomatic missions here in Geneva.I am working here in Swiss for the last 7 years legally with a carte de legitimation.Its almost 2 years that I am paying my AVS also.Is there a possibility that I could ask for a B permit?Am I eligible for one?What are the requirements?Thank you everyone for giving your time to answer my questions.You will be a great help to me,and to my family whom i am supporting in my country.God bless.

Re: a question

You must search first.

http://www.englishforum.ch/tags/b-permit/

and here is the search function.

http://www.englishforum.ch/search.php

A lot of this information is already on the forum, you need to help yourself first by searching, then come back with very specific questions if you don't find what you are looking for.

Re: a question

Hi

Welcome to the forum. This has been discussed a lot and using the search function will probably kick up a lot of information. This thread is probably a good starting point Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

Also, when you start a new thread with question, give an indication as to what the question is in the thread title. Not many people are going to spend their time seeing if they want to read a thread titled "a question".

Good luck with finding a Permit.

given his lack of information and lack of patience, who knows? It's a guess that he's not EU.

Entitling the thread "a question" usually won't get much response either - but that's fixed now

Check the bio, he's a butler from the Philippines.

I'm guessing it will be very difficult for him to get a B permit. Of course, he doesn't say if he's married or have children in Switzerland. That could help him.
