change of canton while unemployed for B permit non EU person

Hi all
I searched the old posts in the forum but only found posts of C-permit holder.

I am not working since Jan and receive the unemployment insurance in Geneva, I wonder if I can move to canton of Zug/Zurich while continuing to receive unemployment insurance payment before finding a job.

I have a B permit, NEITHER linked to canton NOR to employer but I hold a non-EU passport. I only lived and worked in the canton of Geneva.

Thanks for your insight and advice.

Re: change of canton while unemployed for B permit non EU person

No, short answer.

"Art. 37 Change of the place of residence to another canton

1 Persons with a short stay permit or a residence permit who would like to relocate their place of residence to another canton must apply for the appropriate permit from the new canton beforehand.

2 Persons with a residence permit are entitled to move to another canton provided they are not unemployed and there are no grounds for revocation in terms of Article 62 paragraph 1."

There's no such thing. Admission of to-be-resident foreigners is a cantonal matter, every Swiss residence permit is issued by a single canton and it is valid for that canton only.
And yes, you are not entitled to a canton change while unemployed. You may apply, but will in all likelihood be refused.

HR of my last company told me it was not linked to canton, I also asked the authority of another canton if I am allowed to work there and they confirmed.

As said, it is the cantons who issue permits so in that sense your current one is tied to Geneva. If you want to move to another canton you have to apply for a new permit - which can and would be refused since you are unemployed. The law is quite clear.

Obviously if you get a job offer in Zurich/Zug then you can apply for a new permit and it will likely be granted. But you can't just decide you want to move to another canton whether you're employed or not; it's always a case of applying for a new permit and waiting to see if it's granted or not.

Plenty of non-EU countries, including Lichtenstein.

Which one?

Just info I glean from other websites. And I'm already a playtester and moderator on another forum - which keeps me plenty busy. Darn Korean spammers.

A new expansion for the game was announced in March, to be released some time later this year so all the playtesters are waiting patiently (bloody impatiently actually ) to be let loose on it.
