B-permit. Is it transferable?

Hi, I know there are many discussions happened on this topic. However based on recent changes in rules, I have following questions.

1) How can I know whether B-Permit is open or closed ended?
2) Is it possible to convert a open B-Permit if it is closed B-Permit
3) If B-Permit not open and some one has a offer letter in Switzerland, can he apply a work Permit or transfer the B-Permit (not open) to the new employer?
4) in the event if B-permit not open and transferable, can he apply for a new permit not leaving the country?
5) Is there any good immigration consultant which you can refer in Zurich area?

I'm taking about Non-EU passport holder.

Appreciate your response and guidance here.

Re: B-permit. Is it transferable?

The decision was made by the Cantonal Migrationsamt, it will depend on your situation/circumstances versus the employment market.

I suggest you buy a nice box of Lindt chocolates, go there, and ask them.

Indeed as this one in which you posted a reply.

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

1) How can I know whether B-Permit is open or closed ended?
It will be in the letter you received with your permit or possibly on the back of the permit. Note that nearly all non-EU B permits are tied initially. I think only university professors can get an open B straightaway.

2) Is it possible to convert a open B-Permit if it is closed B-Permit
Yes, though it's difficult. The potential new employer has to apply for a new permit and go through the non-EU hiring procedure. It can't be done by the non-EU permit holder. Only a Swiss employer can apply.

3) If B-Permit not open and some one has a offer letter in Switzerland, can he apply a work Permit or transfer the B-Permit (not open) to the new employer?
See answer to 2.

4) in the event if B-permit not open and transferable, can he apply for a new permit not leaving the country?
An applicant can stay in Switzerland while the new application is being considered.

5) Is there any good immigration consultant which you can refer in Zurich area?
If you want to waste your money using a lawyer to try and fight it, go ahead.

Also see this thread by capricious from 2016 which may have a bearing as it involves Zurich canton.

https://www.englishforum.ch/permits-...le-non-eu.html

Whatever you do don't resign from your current job until you have confirmation from the Swiss authorities that a new permit has been granted. Also note that capricious' report is the only one we have so far about this 12 month rule for non-EU B permit holders.

Re: B-permit. Is it transferable?

The easiest way I found was - I went to the labour office in Zurich, showed them my permit and asked if it is open. They said it depends on my case and they cannot tell right there. They gave me a form to fill and send them an application about what I want to do (I wanted to find out if I can change company on same permit or my new employer had to apply for a new permit). In about a week they replied with proper answer.

You will need to fill up and hand in this form to know whether you can freely change job or not http://www.awa.zh.ch/internet/volksw...+AB+online.pdf
