B permit made redundant, changing cantons?

Hello All,

I was made redundant earlier this week with 2 months notice (so contract ends 31.05). I have an EU B permit.

I know that the terms of the (EU) B permit say you're not allowed to move cantons if unemployed (which technically I'm not right now).

Does any one know if having received my letter of notice blocks my right to move or may prevent me from receiving unemployment benefits afterwards ?

Tried to search for this but couldn't find a particular answer and a bit worried that asking to change canton may result in no unemployment or permit being possibly revoked.

Thanks !

Re: B permit made redundant, changing cantons?

I don't know, but would guess that as you have to apply for the new permit before you move to another canton they'd probably ask to see your employment contract. Whether they'd check with your employer to find out if you're still employed or not - well your guess is as good as mine.

My question to you is why bother to try and move now? Was this already in your plan and the job loss has complicated things or are you simply thinking of moving? If the latter then simply don't bother to do it now.

Whether lying about your employment status would constitute "making false statements or concealing material facts" regarding any permit revocation again depends on how the canton would view it.
