L to B for Non EU citizens

Hi All,

I am an Indian currently working in L permit in Basel. I am in my second year term of L visa and it will get expired in Nov 2017.

Now that I am in discussion with my employer to extend my visa by converting it into a B permit. Since the expiry is in Nov 2017, I doubt how the approval rates would during the year end. Basically I have few questions on this topic.

1) How is the quota concept work in case of B permit approvals?
2) Is this quota applies to entire switzerland or does individual cantons have their quota limits?
3) What are the chances of getting B permit approvals in Nov 2017?
4) If I force my employer to file my extension sometime on July or August 2017, will the chances of getting the B permit approval is high?

Thanks

Please use the search, this has been answered before, Your employer will apply for a permit, they can't ask for a B permit, the Swiss will decided what permit to issue.

Re: L to B for Non EU citizens

Well, I guess they can ask, but there's no guarantee you'd get a B.

Nor is it possible to apply early iirc. I think 2 months before the renewal date is the earliest so for a November renewal it would be September.

Re: L to B for Non EU citizens

Quota is per year and per canton. Cantonal authorities can ask for extra permits in case if they end up using all their quota well in advance. Heard Geneva or Zurich going through this last year.

Link to 2016 year quota and I guess 2017 may be similar too.

Chances of getting a permit depends on permit availability and how well your employer can justify your position. Your employer can get required info from authorities and even if you reach out to authorities, I dont think you would be given info. Check with your employer and ask them to speak to authorities.

Your employer can apply for a permit 3 months in advance (at least authorities recommend) and can even ask for a 'B'. Its up to authorities to give you L or B. The earlier you (read your employer) apply the better are the chances of getting one.
