Help please, looking for information on how long I can stay in Swiss!
 
Hi everyone,

I have a question and I hope someone knows the answer!

I'm from Holland and I will be going to Switzerland in December to do a Ski season. My boss will get me a workpermit of 3 months. This permit will last until the middle of March, but I want to stay until somewhere in April.

Does anyone know if I can just stay in Switzerland after the permit ends? And if so, how long am I allowed to stay?
Or do I have to cross the boarder and come back after the permit ends?

I have read different things about it on the internet and also people are telling me different things, so I'm a little confused at the moment. Really hope one of you can help me out with this!

Thanks in advance,

Romanée

EU citizens can stay up to 3 months with no permit, but you have to register within 2 weeks of arrival. If you are working from December-April, hence longer than 3 months, you will need a residence permit, which doubles as a work permit.

Thank you lorena1!!

But does that mean that when I arrive and I register and I let them know I have work, that after my workpermit ends I can stay 3 more months? And yeah I am staying in an appartment there and I will earn money so I can do that.

I would like to work in Switzerland. What are the conditions for getting a work permit?

Nationals of an EU-25/EFTA state now only need a residence permit: this residence permit doubles as work permit. However, a residence permit will only be issued if you have a valid employment contract.

I would like to work in Switzerland. How do I proceed?

EU-25/EFTA

Gainful employment of up to 3 months
EU-25/EFTA nationals taking up a job in Switzerland may stay in Switzerland without a residence permit for three months in a calendar year. However, they are subject to registration with the appropriate authorities.

Not sure if this registration scheme would apply to ski personnel or not though.

After your 3 months' employment is up, you simply revert to tourist status for up to another 3 months. Just don't work during that time.
