Working permit for Non-EU spouse of a Non-EU PhD student with D visa

Hi,

I am new to this forum. I have been looking for a thread with the same situation of mine, but I failed. I'd appreciate any response.

I will be a non-EU PhD student with D visa at Zurich. I am wondering if my husband can apply for the working permit as a dependent of mine. He is a non-EU, and the companies in Switzerland he has applied for told him they only recruit EUs. I am thinking if he can apply for a working permit as the dependent, then maybe there is a higher chance for him to find a job.

Thank you so much for any answers.

Re: Working permit for Non-EU spouse of a Non-EU PhD student with D visa

Welcome to the forum. Firstly, a D visa only gets you into Switzerland for more than 90 days. It's the permit itself that gives you the right to live/work here. I assume as a PhD, you'll get a B permit and your spouse will get the same. As far as I'm aware since a PhD is considered work, your spouse would also be able to look for a job and wouldn't come under the non-EU hiring rules. He doesn't apply for a work permit, his residence permit would include that if he finds a job. He'd just need to take his employment contract to the gemeinde to let them know he'd found a job.

However, be aware that as his permit is dependent on yours, if you do lose/finish your PhD and lose your permit then he can't switch to being the main permit holder and would have to give up his employment as well.
