Are number of days outside of Switzerland restricted on B Permit

Firstly, please accept my apology if this has already been answered / covered somewhere in a previous thread, but I couldnt find it.
So, my question is, when on a B Permit are you restricted in the number of days you can spend outside of the country?
I thought I read somewhere a while ago that you could only be out of the country for a certain number of days otherwise it would affect your B permit, 90 or 180 seem to be in my head, but am not sure.
Anyone have the info or a link where it states this?
Your help in this matter is appreciated.
Thank you.

After 180 days. Can potentially be longer if a respective request is submitted before leaving the country.

https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi...000/142.20.pdf (Art. 61)

Verlässt die Ausländerin oder der Ausländer die Schweiz, ohne sich abzumelden, so erlischt die Kurzaufenthaltsbewilligung nach drei Monaten, die Aufenthalts- und Niederlassungsbewilligung nach sechs Monaten.

Re: Are number of days outside of Switzerland restricted on B Permit

English version:

Section 2: Expiry and Revocation of Permits

Art. 61 Expiry of permits

1 A permit expires:
a. on notice of departure abroad;
b. on the grant of a permit in another canton;
c. on the expiry of the term of validity of the permit;
d. on expulsion in terms of Article 68.2

If a foreign national leaves Switzerland without giving notice of departure, a short stay permit expires after three months, and a residence or permanent residence permit (expires) after six months. On request, a permanent residence permit may remain valid for a further four years."

Re: Are number of days outside of Switzerland restricted on B Permit

Hello, I'm on a dependent L and I was told by the authorities (when i wanted to go out of Switzerland for a while) that I could be gone 3 months without permission from them, and 6 months with notice to the authoritites. My spouse on the other hand could only be away for 3months.

Lucky you then. Usually only C permit holders can get permission to stay away longer. Otherwise it's only 3 months for an L permit holder and 6 for a B/C.

Yes.I was away for 3.5 months to give birth, and returned without hustle with my L. Little one on the other hand, had to go through the process of acquiring permit. It took 2 months from start to finish with one request for additional information.
