I am a non eu living in Switzerland from 6 years and on a B permit. Recently been unemployed and on ALK benefits, took the permit extension form to RAV but they sent me to ALK for stamping. I took to stamp from ALK which selected searching for a job in the "Non active" section and then stamped. Though I have already submitted the form to the immigration dept. for extension, a bit concerned whether they will renew it. I am reading many posts on the Forum that lately such renewals are not happening. Does any of you know any recent case? Does it make a difference if ALK stamps instead of RAV?

I will appreciate your comments. I am very concerned on my situation.

Re: RAV or ALK for B permit extension?

Hello, I am currently in the same situation as you were. Could youbtell me what happened afterwards? I also heard from someone that if you are on ALK, you will not likely get any job calls because you are non EU... is this correct?

Thanks!

As mray hasn't been on the forum since 2015 I expect they didn't get the extension.

Re: RAV or ALK for B permit extension?

This link to the Ct. Zug website indicates that an annual non-EU B permit will normally be extended in practice until the end of the period for which the job-seeker is eligible for unemployment compensation. The link is for non-EU citizens (Drittstaatsangehörige):

https://www.zg.ch/behoerden/sicherhe...ltsbewilligung

It is the migration office, and not RAV/ ALK (Kasse), that approves a residence/ work permit extension.

It may be more difficult for non-EU citizens, even though already resident in Switzerland, to obtain a job than an EU citizen due to extra work that might be required by a prospective employer.

It is not necessary to inform a prospective employer that a job-seeker is registered with RAV.

Re: RAV or ALK for B permit extension?

Dear Mullhollander,

I`m a non EU as well, leaving in ZH for one year and with my B Permit that was just extended another year, being valid until June `18. It is very likely that I leave my job as well in the next 6 months and based on your reply I believe you can point me in the right direction.

The questions I have are:

a) Is my B Permit linked to my current employer? How do I know if it is?
b) In the case I leave the company do I have to leave the country as I would lose my privileges? Or...
c) Can I stay at least until my permit is valid?
d) If the above is valid, as I have contributed more than 12 months do I get support from RAV?

Thanks in advance.

Re: RAV or ALK for B permit extension?

a) Is my B Permit linked to my current employer? How do I know if it is?

Look on the backside of the B permit under Anmerkungen. If a company is listed, it is tied to an employer. See the bottom photo at this link for an example (Angela Jones Ward is employed by Strong Company, 3012 Bern):

https://www.sem.admin.ch/dam/data/se...-ausweis-e.pdf

b) In the case I leave the company do I have to leave the country as I would lose my privileges? Or...

See c) below.

c) Can I stay at least until my permit is valid?

Normally, you can stay in CH until at least the end of the permit's validity.

d) If the above is valid, as I have contributed more than 12 months do I get support from RAV?

Yes, if your employment ends, RAV/ ALK would normally provide unemployment compensation. For the number of work-days of unemployment compensation, see this RAV brochure, p. 10. (Calendar days can be calculated by taking working days x 7/5, e.g., 260 work-days equals 364 calendar days, that is, approx. one calendar year):

http://www.awa.sg.ch/home/arbeitslos...6_englisch.pdf

Also, although it is not legally required, the migration authorities may extend the B permit until the end of RAV financial support. See my above post #4.

Re: RAV or ALK for B permit extension?

Dear Mullhollander,

Thanks a lot for your help, clarity and quick return.

On the back of my permit there is no mention of me employer but it mentions my current role in the company, my job title, and something on "self employment is subjected to approval"- selbst erwerbstätigkeit ist bewilligungspflichtig.
