Re: 2015 Permit Quota for Non-EU

Hi, thank you. This is a very useful post. I have got a job offer from Basel and they are applying for non-EU work permit for me with a joining date in Jan 2017. Will this quota exhaustion still apply to me?

I suppose it would be under 2017 quota.

Another question: for non EU graduates with a Swiss degree, if you find a job within 6 months, are you subjected to this quota or not, because you supposedly would be "on equal footing with swiss citizens"?

Re: 2015 Permit Quota for Non-EU

Can someone clarify

1) are the quotas used up annually or quarterly?
2) quota spaces are issued based on application date?

Everything I had read led me to believe that quotas were released each quarter, but the recent news suggests the quotas are full until the end of the year. Does that mean that applications consider the work start date and not submission date?

I mean, if there are 1000 quotas for each quarter, can a company submit in January an application for a July start? If so, would that application take up a space in Q3(Jul-Sep) and not Q1(Jan-Mar)?

I'm asking because I thought that we could time an application, for example, submit on October 1st and then we would be covered by the last quarter quotas.

I thought that a submission dated June 3rd was valid for that date and for the second quarter quota, regardless of the starting date on the contract.

Thanks

Re: 2015 Permit Quota for Non-EU

Non-EU work permit quotas become available at the beginning of the year. 50% are distributed to the cantons and 50% are retained by the Bund (Swiss Federal government).

This report shows that 56% and 62% of the total non-EU L and B permits were exhausted by June 2016. Non-EU L and B are also going more quickly in the period January to June 2016 than in the same period in 2015. See p.14 for details:

https://www.sem.admin.ch/dam/data/se...16-06-q2-d.pdf

Generally, the exhaustion of non-EU permits in some cantons may not be more dramatic in 2016 as in 2015. According to this December 2015 article, "economically strong cantons such as Basel-Stadt, Zug and Genf had already exhausted their quotas in March (2015) and had to apply to the Bund (for more)."

Re: 2015 Permit Quota for Non-EU

My husband has been hired by a large swiss company and we are supposed to receive the contract early this month (Sept). We used to live in Zurich so have been through the process before. However somethings still are not clear to us, and some things have changed!

I see from reading above that ZRH's quotas for non-EU has now been depleted. I am still holding out hope that perhaps some permits can still be borrowed (from Uri? or that if the start date is in 2017 new quotas would apply, even thought the application was submitted in 2016. If that is the case, would the migration authorities make the company open the position again to Swiss/EU applicants?
At this point, should we just lose hope? It is our dream to move back to ch and we should never have left

Re: 2015 Permit Quota for Non-EU

At the bottom of the Le Temps article it mentions that, although the 2016 Federal reserves for B permits were nearly exhausted at month-end July, there were still B permit reserves from 2015:
Et il reste dans la réserve fédérale des unités de 2015 (à fin juillet):

Permis B: 179 (aujourd’hui certainement entamés)


Also, since L permits are in greater supply, it can be expected that some of these will be issued to non-EU employees in 2016 as a temporary measure who would otherwise be eligible for a B. In 2017 there will be an effort to replace these L's with 2017 non-EU B permits.

Try to be patient. Based on what I've seen here, 12 weeks is quite common for a first time permit for non-EU.
