What happens when your B Visa runs out and you're waiting for your C?

Hi

Greetings from Zurich - Here's hoping maybe someone has had a similar situation.

Currently have a non-EU B which is good til the end of January and I'm off on business in February. Having submitted the documentation for an early C permit, I'm just wondering if I don't get my new card by the time my B runs out, do I have to request a special extension so I can re-enter the country?

I've searched here on the forum and online with limited success.

Any thoughts EF'ers?

Merci vielmal/Merci Beaucoup/Tanti Grazie/Takk Fyrir

I'm currently in the same situation as you, waiting for my C permit with B having run out on Monday. If you need to leave the country, you need to go to Migrationsamt ZH (Berninastrasse 45) in person with your passport and ask for a return visa. It costs 90 CHF and they issue it on the spot.

Quoting an official reply from MA ZH,
Quote:
Wenn Sie reisen möchten und momentan über keine gültige Aufenthaltsbewilligung verfügen, können Sie am Schalter des Migrationsamts des Kantons Zürich ein Rückreisevisum beantragen. Am Schalter wird direkt geprüft, ob ein Visum ausgestellt werden kann. Sie müssen persönlich mit Ihrem Reisepass (Gültigkeit min. drei Monate nach Rückkehr) vorsprechen. Ein Rückreisevisum kostet CHF 90.- für Erwachsene, für Kinder zwischen 6 und 12 Jahren CHF 50.-, Kleinkinder unter 6 Jahren wird für die Ausstellung eines Rückreisevisum nichts verrechnet. Ein Rückreisevisum wird nur ausgestellt, wenn Sie bereits das Aufenthalts/Verlängerungsgesuch auf der zuständigen Einwohnerkontrolle Ihrer Wohngemeinde/Kreisbüro, eingereicht haben.
