B Permit expiring

Hello All,

I am coming up to my 5 year anniversary in Switzerland and my b-permit will expire early February. My question is what is the process for renewal? Do I need to contact the gemeinde myself or do they post the registration. I have tried to find this information online and nothing. I am a UK national and live in Zurich. Thanks

Normally you will get a notification from your townhall/Gemeinde to come and renew the permit, in my case it was 2 months in advance or so.

If you want to go for a C permit, you´d need to check what the requirements are (UK citizens need to show a language certificate in some Kantons)

Re: B Permit expiring

I do not know about Zurich but in Bern, they send 1 month before the expiration.

As roegner also said, you will receive a notification from your townhall/Gemeinde via post, with a form to fill in. (1-2 months in advance) You practically don't have to do much, providing you or your spouse still work here. (they might ask a certificate from work though)

And the Betreibungsamt auch eine Frage über Sozialhilfe.

I think they investigate that for sure, before issuing the permit. OP asked what she has to do though.

Re: B Permit expiring

Officiallly you should apply at your Gemeinde/Commune, 2 months before the 'B' permit expires. They will tell you which documents you need.

Re: B Permit expiring

We didn't have to do anything. The renewal forms arrived in the mail. You fill them out and check the box at the bottom that says that you want to be considered for a C permit.

You and your partner\spouse go to communale office, present the forms, present your language certificates and proof of continued employment.

The C permits arrive in the mail a few weeks later. It really couldn't have been easier.
