Non-EU and EU marriage - both holders of Carte de Légitimation

EDIT: Title should read 'both CDL holders' - I didn't realize CDL and Ci were different

Hello friends,

It's been a while since posting after having crossed the border into France and becoming a frontalier, but now I'm contemplating a move back into Helvetia, and I am once again at the mercy of your infinite collective wisdom.

The situation is this:

My EU girlfriend and I (non-EU, from US) are getting married in 11 days. We are both currently on 'cartes de legitimation' (CDL), working for the UN but living in France. I (mostly) understand the process for changing my civil status if we were to remain in France, but we may move back into Switzerland, and I'm wondering if this change in civil status will also affect my work permit, particularly for applying to new (non-UN) jobs.

Before I landed my current (entry-level) job and receiving a CDL with the UN, it was practically impossible for employers to consider hiring me as non-Swiss and non-EU. Even for internships, I was immediately turned away once they realized I was American. No one wanted to bother with the lengthy, arduous process.

However, I may have found an employer who is now willing to go through with it, but I am wondering if my upcoming marriage will make things any easier for him.

As always, any feedback is most appreciated! TIA!

Re: Non-EU and EU marriage - both Ci permits

Sorry, but it will only make it easier for him if your new wife has a Swiss residence permit and you have a dependent's one because she's financially responsible for you.

If you don't have that he'll have to go through the non-EU hiring process.

If she stays employed at the UN after the move you'll both keep the CDL status anyway iirc. Again, if you want to find a non-UN/NGO job you'd be back at the non-EU hiring rule I think because the CDL doesn't count as a Swiss residence permit for hiring purposes.

Thanks MF. Do you know any good threads for how the "non-EU hiring process" works?
