Non-EU Student - Part-Time Work

Hi everyone!

I'm a Non-EU citizen currently studying in Geneva as a masters student. A week or so ago, the 6-month restriction on my student B residence-permit which barred me from working part-time at all ended, and according to the university/canton guidelines, I'm now allowed to pursue upto 15 hours of part-time work, after proving to the university that it'll not restrict my studies in any way.

I am getting two opportunities to teach so far. One by a tutoring website based outside of Switzerland the T&Cs of which state that I'm hired as an independent contractor and not bound by an employment contract. Another through a .ch website that allows tutors to find students and find part-time teaching jobs with them.

I'll be teaching barely about 2 hours per week on both, likely on weekends.

How do I go on about this? Do I just need to take the permission from the university and inform the OCPM? Will the income I make (on ~20-25 CHF per hour, and most likely not for the entire year) come anywhere near the taxable limit? (I only pay the annual 25CHF cantonal tax so far) What other things should I take care of?

Thanks so much for your help!

Re: Non-EU Student - Part-Time Work

Not sure either of those would work. You need a Swiss employer to apply for a work permit for you. These are the rules according to EHTZ:

I assume they'll be the same for the rest of Switzerland.

Re: Non-EU Student - Part-Time Work

I'm fairly sure this will indeed work out.

A real, full application is not necessary. OP's employer has to submit some basic application, but it is not particularly complicated. https://awa.zh.ch/internet/volkswirt...m_studium.html ("Gesuchsunterlagen für Nebenbeschäftigung")

The income is unlikely to come near the taxable limit.

Re: Non-EU Student - Part-Time Work

Thank you so much for both the replies!

The university career page states that I only need to provide a E-form with the signatures of the employer, a copy of my ID and my B-permit, and a cover letter from the Career Letter giving me the requisite permission. It doesn't mention that the employer has to apply for a work permit for me.

Although the first opportunity I'm getting is from a company not based in Switzerland, the second one is indeed an opportunity to become a private tutor for an individual who is a residence (and probably a citizen - I haven't confirmed yet) of Switzerland. Can that person act as an employer or does it specifically have to be a company?
