Re: Non EU permit

SORRY. I did it again. That's what happens when I spend my precious time looking at EF on the phone when I should be washing up. Scrolling my finger must have hit Groan. Removed.

I'm sure your wrong gainfully employment doesn't mean you always get paid.
Wrong, your knowledge of English is crap.

Can you point me to info on voluntary employment that would help.
You can get a permit without needing employment in certain cantons if you pay at least an annual tax bill with at least 7 times the rental value of the apartment/house you live in.

Also, regardless of whether you pay yourself as being the company's director, unless you promise to create Swiss jobs you won't get permission to found a company.

Switzerland is not some orange for random entrepreneurs from abroad to come and squeeze a bit of juice out of; if your company isn't going to benefit the country, you won't be allowed to establish it.

So the question is if the salary for the position was 100'000CHF but I'm volunteering or not taking a salary would I payin the the same amount social contributions or what unemployed pay I'm assuming since its considered gainfully employed without pay that I would pay the regular contributions based on the salary I would be paid. Please corrrct me if I'm wrong.
Work permit stuff aside, in what world is the above even an option, except for a very, very, very few with those symbolic salaries but then millions in stock?

It's not legal to employ anyone at no pay in Switzerland except for clear volunteering activities. Working as a "director" for what would otherwise be a 100k+ salary can hardly be called "volunteering" Consequence: no permit.


Since "no one can do what you can do" (which would be a first, really), there should be no problem whatsoever going down the normal route to obtain a residence & work permit.

Just say what you really want and why you're so dead-set on Switzerland even though it's been pointed out fifteen times that it won't work out this way.

Re: Non EU permit

From his very first post on another thread

https://www.englishforum.ch/permits-...eu-permit.html

I get the feeling he just doesn't want to be in the States anymore (can't blame him) and picked Switzerland to try. There seems to be confusion over whether he needs his Type D visa first (which Geneva is asking for before they consider the permit) or not.

All I can suggest - since we've probably exhausted all options and given plenty of explanations/reasons why he'll have problems setting up a business here - is that he applies for the visa with the embassy/consulate, submits his business plan, finances and permit application to the Geneva cantonal migration office and see what happens. And report back here whatever the outcome.

If his skills are that unique and in demand here, he should find no problem in getting a job. If the aim is setting up his own company, it's a bit more difficult, but this desire to not be here 365 days a year only complicates things and frankly puzzles me. If he wants to leave the States behind (unforunately not really possible tax-wise) then do so, don't keep flitting between the States and Switzerland which is what I assume he'll be trying to do with a Swiss permit for only 120 days a year.

If his skills aren't unique then no likelihood of employment or setting up a company here. Just because you want to, doesn't mean you get permission to do so. If it's not going to benefit Switzerland's economy why should they allow a company to be set up here?
