Main permit and Dependent permit swap for Non EU

Hi,
I have a question about Non EU dependent which hopefully somebody can clarify.(and i have read all the non eu permit related threads in this forum and still cant find an answer).

If am employer wants to apply for a permit for a Non EU employee who is already working for the employer since 1 year, does the employer has to still prove that they could not find a Swiss or EU person in this case.

The Non EU employee has a dependant B permit with work permission. so no paper work was needed at the time of joining.
However the employer did post the job 1 year ago in job portals and hired the Non EU employee after several rounds of interviews and after interviewing several other candidates including Swiss and EU.
Generally is it easier for an employer to apply for a permit for a Non EU employee already working for the same employer compared to applying for a permit for a Non EU forA new job?

Thanks in advance

Re: Main permit and Dependent permit swap for Non EU

Are you asking because your other half has lost their job? If so, then I think to change yours the employer would have to go through the same non-EU hiring process as everyone else. And no, it's not any easier as far as I know.

Hi Media,
No, the other half has not lost his job but already senses that his upcoming permit renewal may not happen.
Coming to your answer, you said the employer has to go throug the same Non EU process in this case, but he has already gone through this process one year ago. it is just that the authorities were not informed at that time because no permit was needed for the Non EU at the time of joining. however the evidences of publishing the job and interviwing other Swiss and EU candidates are there with the employer. can he use them to apply for the permit this time.

Thanks in advance

Re: Main permit and Dependent permit swap for Non EU

No, I think he has to go through the whole thing again. The HR department should check with the canton migration office to be sure though.

Why would the permit renewal not happen though? Is he non-EU too? Be careful, it's not always the case that a main and dependent permit can be swopped around. If the main permit holder loses their reason for being here (job) then it could be you'd both have to leave the country, whether you have a job here or not. Check with your canton migration office is the best advice I can give you as they'll be the ones making the decisions.
