SAP NONEU WORK IN GERMANY has no particular reputation at present
NONEU GERMANY to Switzerland, I.T guy, is it possible ?

Hi All,

I would like to ask if it is possible for a non eu national, working in Germany to look for jobs in Switzerland, as I see quotas have expired on 31August for Geneva, Basel, Zurich. Is it possible in near future.. is it worth moving from Germany to Zurich or any other german speaking part of Switzerland.
I speak English, learnt German...do I need French if I want to increase my chances of getting hired.

I am sap guy with 10 years experience.. and since 2 years I work in Germany, Frankfurt.

I understand a non eu stands at very less chances of making it to this dream land..can any one let me know the chances and how I can adapt to the job culture and how do I fit in here...Thank you very much..have been reading on this forum since 3 years, this is my first question.

Re: NONEU GERMANY to Switzerland, I.T guy, is it possible ?

As a non-EU national you have no right to move to Switzerland to look for work. Your residency permit in Germany means nothing here. You're a third country national and as such can only move here if you have a pre-approved job offer from a Swiss employer, move here with your Swiss/EU spouse/partner or are independently wealthy enough not to need to work.

You can certainly apply for jobs in Switzerland while living in Germany, but you will come under the non-EU hiring criteria which is outlined here:

https://www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home...zulassung.html

This means any Swiss employer has to prove they can't find a Swiss/EU national to do the job and it also costs said employer time and money to make the permit application so unless they think they have a good chance of success they won't try.

If you have been reading the forum for 3 whole years then you already know there are a TON of threads already about Non-EU people seeking jobs, and the questions you are asking are very basic. Go back and search the forum, read the many job-seeking threads, and do all of your research and due diligence on Swiss job sites and sign up to as many IT recruiting companies as possible.

There is rarely a short term solution, so aim for preparing yourself as much as you can for next year

Oh boy.

Google will pretty much give you the answer in 10 seconds, as will the thousands and thousands of threads in this forum.

No, you cannot just move here and look for work. You have no right to reside here without a job.

You currently being in Germany and having some sort of permit for Germany has zero relevance.

You can look for and apply to jobs from where you are at the moment as much as you want. Should you be offered one, your company needs to prove that there are zero Swiss/EU/EFTA citizens to do the job - which is of course not really the case for the majority of jobs. If they succeed to prove this regardless, then you will get a work permit and only then will you be able to move here.
