Re: Non-EU B Permit

Having a degree is a requirement for all non-EU applicants.

"Personal qualifications

(Art. 23 AuG)

Cadre, specialists and other qualified employees will be admitted. "Qualified employee" means, first and foremost, people with a degree from a university or institution of higher education as well as several years of professional experience. Depending on the profession or field of specialisation, other people with special training and several years of professional work experience may also be admitted."

Re: Non-EU B Permit

I am european and started with a L permit so they gave wife which is not european a L permit as well. Then when I got a B permit (6 months after) they also gave her a B permit as well. They give to the spouse the exact permit that the husband has (or the opposit I believe).

I am an engineer with an average salary

Re: Non-EU B Permit

Probably, and why would you want to change to part time?

Rather than taking 10 subjects in a semester and just pass the exam. It is better to take 3-4 subjects in a semester and complete it with good knowledge and improve skills for future life in Data Science sector. Also, this allows me to learn German too.

Also, it is permissible for all the students to take part-time study. Which allows them to indulge both in work in the study. I believe this is the reason why most western people are independent in their life and creative in their thoughts. When I come across the same opportunity, I also wanted to make use of this wonderful opportunity.

Still, as a student I think you are not allowed to work more than 15 hours a week

Re: Non-EU B Permit

Anyways my intention is not to work more than the allowed duration. I am aware that I am not allowed to do more than during studies and my Uni doesn't support this.

Re: Non-EU B Permit

Students are limited to maximum 15 hours per week work-wise and need to get permission to do so.

Don't know where you're studying, but here's ETHZ's rules, I expect they're the same everywhere else.

"Gainful employment

During the semester, you may accept a paid part-time job of no more than 15 hours a week. Full-time employment is permitted during the regular semester vacations. However, in both cases your employer will have to apply for your work permit at the cantonal Office for Economy and Labour ("Amt für Wirtschaft und Arbeit" – AWA) if you come from a non-EU country or from Romania or Bulgaria. This is only possible once you have received your residence permit!

Important:
Bachelor students from non-EU countries must have lived in Switzerland for at least 6 months to obtain a work permit.

During their first 6 months in Switzerland, Master students from non-EU countries can only obtain a work permit for a job at their ETH department.
Further information can be found at: www.arbeitsbewilligungen.zh.ch."

You'd need to talk to your uni and more importantly the cantonal migration office to see if it's possible. I doubt it will be, you're here to be a student studying the subject(s) you applied for and were accepted to do. But it never hurts to ask.

This happens nowadays. I heard this also that people who already had a B visa is given B itself. However, I am looking for a career start in IT , can anyone help me.. I tried many websites like Indeed, LinkedIn, students.ch etc

Probably the question is why you'd like B permit sooner? I could not see what is the advantages of holding non-EU B permit compared to L permit.
Mainly residence. 98% of the time , L permit of non EU applications get rejected. very few lucky ppl get it.
Thats one of the reason i can think of if its tied to employer.

Re: Non-EU B Permit

I would like to highlight - any internal transfer initiated by company from no -EU country get B permit directly which is tied to employer. I have seen few such cases last year.

ex - Swiss company has branch in SG and employee working in SG move (transfer ) to ZH office get B permit directly.

Depends on the company, if they are big enough this may work.

I asked my immigration lawyer last year if this would work for me. He said, there was definitely a level required, like VP, etc. But also there was a salary requirement of over 300K I believe.

Re: Non-EU B Permit

I managed to get a non-EU B permit a few months ago when I moved to Switzerland (Zurich), as well as a cohabitation (B) permit for my non-EU (unmarried) partner, so it's definitely possible

its not quite true.. When I was a student, I worked 2 days and each day was 8 hours 12 mins. So per week I worked 16 hours and 24 minutes. This is also mentioned in the contract and there was no problem (for Bern).

The other exception, foreign students can work 100% in holidays such as winter or summer holidays as I did both.

Nah, that might be a requirement for the permit quota tranche reserved for executives, but it's definitely not all there is.
Like, Google here has no problem hiring scores of non-EU engineers and the average salary there is more like half of 300k.

Let me clarify my statement. I was responding to the prospect of an "internal transfer". If you meet certain requirements the company could forgo the requirement of having to do a local job search first.

Totally understand that 300K is not required for non-eu workers, if it was I'd be enjoying a much better life style!

Re: Non-EU B Permit

Normally you receive B with new permanent employment and people who are in Switzerland for short term employment for example IT onsite jobs receive L.

View Post
What are the chances and criteria of a Non-EU citizen getting a B permit on his first year application?
- Is it always the case that, non-EU citizens always get a L permit in their first 2 years?
- Has any non-eu citizen received a B permit in the first year? if so what was different in the application?
- Are there any recent cases (last 2-3 years)?

Thanks.
