Family Reunification after 25

Hi,

I am currently in Switzerland as a dependent of my parents on a CDL.
I am due to turn 25 in a few months after which my CDL expires as of now.
The website does not give any information on what my options may be after this.
Would I be required to leave Switzerland even if I am still majorly financially dependent on my parents?

Can I take up a language course or something to get a student permit.

I would appreciate any answer from people who have heard or been through the same thing as I am running a little short of time
Very sad situation to face *sigh*

P.S: I am Non-EU

Thanks

Re: Family Reunification after 25

How long have you been here - could you apply for nationality?

Couldn't you get a job and thus your own permit?

No, only been here three years actually
My parents have been here for 5. Does that help?
Getting a job would be the best. I do have a temp contract for the moment but that doesn't extend beyond my 25th birthday and I am not sure they will extend it.
Have all UN kids all gone for jobs post 25 and got their own visas??

Re: Family Reunification after 25

Some relevant information here:

Quote:
La carte de légitimation doit être restituée lorsqu’un enfant a atteint l’âge de vingt-cinq ans. Ainsi, l’enfant qui atteint ses vingt-cinq ans et qui désire poursuivre son séjour en Suisse, doit déposer une demande d’autorisation de séjour selon le droit ordinaire. Cette demande doit être déposée assez tôt à l’approche des 25 ans.

Yes, basically as that's the way it works. You either get a job here under the normal non-EU hiring rules, decide to study something which would get you a student permit or leave Switzerland.

Your current employer would have to prove they can't find a Swiss/EU national who could do your job before they'd be able to extend your contract so you need to talk to them about this. The criteria is here:

https://www.bfm.admin.ch/bfm/en/home...zulassung.html

If they're willing and think they have enough chance of success to justify the time and expense for the application then I'd get them started on it right away.

Or look for another job or a study course you'd like to do which would get you a permit.
