How to change from B permit to spouse B permit in another canton?

Hello,

I am a non-EU person working in Lausanne with B permit that expires on next month. My husband (non-EU) was working as a consultant with spouse B permit and he is now offered a job in Neuchatel and will be getting a new B permit.

Currently I don't know what is the procedure for me to get spouse B permit once my current permit expires. Do I need to go back to my country to apply as joining spouse? Or can I wait until my husband receives his permit. However this leads to the question that if it gets delayed and I might suddenly have to leave here end of next month (I don't want live here illegally). Does anyone know how to deal with this kind of situation?

Thank you very much!

I think you just need to tell Vaud & Neuchatel migration about the changes. But I'd check to make sure that your husband's permit isn't tied to his new employer. If it is, it may mean you'd have to move to Neuchatel canton as he would have to live in the same canton as his workplace is based.

Many thanks for your reply. It is helpful. I will check whether it is tied to the employer. May be we have to until they give the permit. Anyway it is good to know that we don't need to fly back to our country. Thanks again.

Check with both canton migration offices to be sure. They'll be able to give you a definitive answer.

If a permit's tied to an employer it usually has their name on the back of the permit I think.

Hi,
Please update us what the cantonal authorities say. I would be interested to know if the cantonal authorities ask you to apply for family unification again( in reverse way) as you will get dependent permit based on this.

Cheers

Re: How to change from B permit to spouse B permit in another cantone?

Hello,

It took some time to sort out my husband's contract, permit application, etc.

I visited Lausanne commune today and I just had to fill the form 'avis de fin de validité (Permis B CE/AELE)' and to submit a copy of my husband's contract. I mentioned Lausanne that Neuchatel is still processing my husband's permit and I want to live in Lausanne. They said it is ok and I can submit the form even when the decision from the Neuchatel has not given yet.

At the same time, my husband's company has mentioned he will get the decision within 2-3 weeks and they do not know what type of permit he will get at the moment (restricted or not). I will update what happens next. Thanks!

Re: How to change from B permit to spouse B permit in another canton?

Hello,

My situation has changed during the past couple of days. My contract has been extended until November since I had to finish an urgent project. So I got my usual B permit again from Lausanne (and they cancelled my original application). My husband has to move to London urgently due to company transfer, so he will again get a spouse permit from my permit until November. We will both move to London after November. Hence, we no longer have the same situation.

However, as I mentioned in my previous post, it is definitely possible to change from B permit to spouse B permit in another cantone. Thanks !
