Short-term assignments for non-EUs in Geneva/Lausanne

Ciao EF members,

Still negotiating intra-company transfer terms with my current employer,but apparently I have to dig a bit more on this matter.

So the overseas company is planning to send me to their Swiss office for 2 months so I was wondering whether they would still have to apply for my L permit before I get there? I am a non-EU but I can stay in Switzerland for up to 90 days.

I have read somewhere that for EU/EFTA nationals they issue L permits for short term assignments even if they will stay a month or two, but not so sure about non-EUs Any ideas? Do i still fall under the quota rules?

At this stage, they will not process B permit application as they want to make sure that I like French speaking part before they consider transferring me permanently......MEH

Thanks a bunch in advance xxx

Re: Short-term assignments for non-EUs in Geneva/Lausanne

The 90 days are for a visit as a tourist. If you work, you're clearly not a tourist.

Hence yes, you need a permit and yes, that will be an L and yes, you need one before you come here.

Your company needs to apply for it and I don't think there's any special rule for these kind of assignments, i.e. the employer will have to go through the regular process and you will fall under the quota rules.
