Re: job seekers permit

Did you have any unemployment benefit before moving out of Switzerland and did you transfer the benefits to your new country? If so that would only have been for 3 months and I would guess disqualify you from getting more if you move back here.

I never visited RAV, so i never received any unemployment benefit or having transferred any.

Aren't unemployment benefits calculated on the more recent months worked?

i.e. if you worked 12 months but have been gone 12 months you're not going to get much, unless you'd also been earning/contributing in an EU country in the time since you left CH?
maybe they average income over last 6 months or last 12 months, whatever is more favorable. So if one waited for 6months before applying on RAV he gets half of salary and if he waited 12 months he gets nothing.

Re: job seekers permit

Um, is unemployment a social insurance?

"L EU/EFTA permits without gainful employment are granted to job seekers from all EU/EFTA states. However, this practice does not create an entitlement to social insurance."

Unemployment is an insurance you pay into when you're employed, and as such is not social insurance, I believe.

Social insurance includes things such as subsidies for food, lodging, transport, and health insurance - when you don't make enough to live on your salary or you're not able to work for medical reasons.

Unless you were employed in an EU country, six months of nothing is nothing.

Thatīs a definite no, this does not work that way. Itīs an insurance, nothing more so plain math will be applied for the calculation

Re: job seekers permit

How is with the right to apply for job seeker permit as EU resident? Does one need to register as job seeker and then apply for job seeker permit after 3 months passed? Can one say that he's in Switzerland for 3 months already and can apply for job seeker permit immediately?

Then you will for sure have to show some paperwork you have been here. You have to have registered in a town.

Trying to trick the system is never a good idea.

No, you can be here as a tourist for up to 3 months without registering. If you haven't found a job in that time then you register as being a resident and get a job seeker permit for another 3 months providing you have the funds to support yourself.

Why would you apply immediately? a) You're lying and b) it cuts down on the time you have to find a job because the permit is only for 3 months. Being here as a tourist and then applying gives you 6 months in total to find a job.

Well, since you don't seem to have been employed in another EU country recently from what I can gather you're unlikely to be entitled to unemployment so probably wouldn't meet the financial requirement to get the permit.

As for health care you should have an EHIC card which provides emergency cover throughout the EU/Switzerland.

I would be entitled if last 12months would be taken in account for unemployment benefits calculation.but if RAV would take in account only last 6 months, then i would get zero unemployment benefits.

Re: job seekers permit

Then talk to RAV about whether you'd be entilted to anything and whether you'd get a permit of any kind. You could be penalised several months of payments for not signing on as soon as you knew you were going to lose your job, but only they can tell you that for sure.

Which bit of NO do you need explaining, the "N" or the "O" ?
