Change of Cantons wih B permit

Hey,
I got into both University of Zurich(UZH) and University of Geneva. The acceptance from Geneva came a bit late so I had to apply for Student VISA D with the acceptance from UZH with Canton of Zurich as my residence.

My current situation is such that I am still in India and my VISA application is approved by the Canton of Zurich. I am planning to move to Switzerland by early September 2018.


University of Geneva is my choice of school. Now I would like to change my permit from the Canton of Zurich to Geneva once i reach Switzerland. Just to be clear i have not yet registered at the Canton of Zurich. Kindly help me regarding this procedure if at all this is possible.


I would also like to know any other alternatives regarding the same.



Thank you

Re: Change of Cantons wih B permit

Sorry, but don't think it's possible. You would have to apply for a new student permit with Geneva.

Re: Change of Cantons wih B permit

Thank you for your reply. But reapplying for a new B permit through the Swiss Embassy in India will take another 2-3 months. Can i do the same directly at the Canton of Geneva or Zurich?

Re: Change of Cantons wih B permit

No. You'd have to start all over again.
