Dear EF members,
I would like to ask you all, maybe somebody can give me advice. I am a EU25 national, currently looking for job in Switzerland, already living in Zurich… but not registered as a resident and without any work permit. I already had some job interviews, everything was going ok till the point they ask my current status here which is “tourist” (I have read that in order to get the work permit for me I need to find a job and get a working contract and then apply for work and residence permit which is issued in 2-3 weeks) after saying that I don’t have yet the permit nor the residence I could feel they have doubts and they were thinking probably it will take some time and they will have to put up with some bureaucratic work which is not true because they don’t have to do anything (if I have the correct information).
So my question is:
A, is it better that I register already for residence and apply for the L permit and continue to look for job. In this case I know there are some obligations that I have to meet.
B, stay the way I am now and just continue writing on CV EU25 national… (this option is more convenient for me as I don’t want to over budgeted myself with health insurance and all payments connected to the “living in Switzerland” for now.
Any advices or help appreciated
