Student resident permit renewal

Hi there! I have a quick question and I need some advice on this one. I have B permit for students that expires 31.10.2013. but I have recently recieved a letter stating that I have to renew my permit by 4.9.2013. but I have never renewed my permit before the start of the semester. A lady from Controle des habitants in Lausanne exchanged few mails with me stating that I don't need to renew my permit before 18.9. so I am quite confused now. I have no idea if I have to be in Lausanne in few days or can I wait until 18.9. I don't have and idea why would they send me a letter like this and besides that there was some questionnaire about my study plans attached. I haven't seen any of these, my uncle told me I recieved these. I don't know what to do. Has anybody had a situation like this before?

I take it you're away on holiday which is why you haven't seen the documents. If so, then I suggest coming back for a few days to find out what the questionnaire is asking about. Until you know that, any advice from here is irrelevant.

Re: Student resident permit renewal

Maybe it depends on your nationality and your studies as well. I'm a MA student at Uni Bern (EU) and when I had to extend my student B in February (about 3 weeks before it expired, I'd gotten no 'deadline' however) I did not yet have my next immatrikulationsbestätigung for the spring semester either. I just went there with the form they'd sent me by mail and after I told them I didn't have the said bestätigung yet they just told me they'd keep the form and that I should return when I had the document regardless of my permit expiring before that. All worked out. Are you about to conclude your studies? My advice: when you talk to people from the canton about stuff like this, get their full name and take notes. This way you can always refer back to it and say that Ms. Whatever told you this and this on that date.
