Renewal of L permit to B, and Fees
I've been living and working in switzerland for over two years now, and I have been dealing with quite a long process now for renewing my work permit for a 3rd year. I am from the US and moved here to work in one of the hospitals and live with my girlfriend (who is Swiss). The past two years I have had no trouble getting my work permits. This year my employer sent in a request for an extension a month or so before mine was to expire. Then Bern basically told them that they needed to give me a raise and prove why they needed to hire me and not someone from inside the EU. Well then the HR did both things, and It basically looked like everything should be ok and it should get renewed. Now I have also gone to the Gemeinde where I live, with a form for my permit extension request completed and stamped from my employer. I am hoping this year that I will receive a B permit. However, now my HR at the hospital has sent me a pack of bills that the Migrationsamt, the Staatssekratariat fuer Migration SEM, and the Volkswirtschaftsdirektion Amt fuer Wirtshaft und Arbeit, sent them. All the bills are billed with the "Einbezahlt von" to the name of my employer and not me. Are they able legally to send these bills onto me? I have already payed the Verlangerung fee at the Gemeinde for 102CHF.
Here is a list of the bills the HR passed on to me:
1.) Rechnung fuer Stellenantritt 95CHF (addressed and billed to my employer) from Migrationsamt
2.) Rechnung fuer Spruchgebuehr 180CHF (addressed and billed to my employer) from Staatssekretariat fuer Migration SEM
3.) Verfuegung fuer Arbeit 400CHF (addressed and billed to my employer) from Amt fuer Wirtschaft und Arbeit
This just all seems really weird and wrong, the past two years I never paid more than 150CHF total for my permit renewals. Also when I was doing some searching online for anyone else who has had similar things happen, I could not find anything. So please if anyone has any answers that can help me with this process it would be greatly appreciated.
