Re: Pertaining Work Visa

A non-EU candidate has no part to play in applying for a work permit. That is solely down to the company.

The company must first prove that there are no Swiss or EU citizens qualified and willing to take the job. That process is between the company and the authorities in Switzerland.

All you can do is wait.

A word to the wise, though: Were it me, I would make all negotiations with the company contingent upon gaining that permit. And negotiate in return clauses, as a non-EU employee has little security here should the job disappear.

Good luck.

Re: Pertaining Work Visa

okay thank you so much for the reply.So my employer has to prove this to the authorities that
  • That it has made every possible effort to find a worker on the Swiss and European local labour market, the latter if the application concerns a non-European national

One more question I would like to ask here is, Can I any Visa agents help me on this ?

Re: Pertaining Work Visa

The employer has to do all the work with regards to the permit application.
You will not be involved.

All you can do is supply a very good CV to the employer.

No. It's not even actually a visa, but a permit to live and work here. It's issued by the canton (state) where you'll be living and working. Nothing to do with embassies or anything else that anyone could help with. It's entirely up to the prospective employer to deal with.

Okay, Thank you so much for the valuable inputs, I am/was little confused about this point "that it has made every possible effort to find a worker on the Swiss and European local labour market, the latter if the application concerns a non-European national". I mean how will the employer prove that I have some skills which is missing in entire EU. Anyways lets see what will happen as I have reached here and going to meet my employer.

Re: Pertaining Work Visa

I have many Indian national colleagues who have had no issue 'getting in' as local employees.

Possibly your employer's relationship with the Gemeinde may have some influence, but there's nothing you can do about that.

Well, Google in Zurich for example has no problem hiring probably hundreds of non-EU software engineers every year so that's definitely possible. The more experienced you are and the larger your future salary, the better the chances.

Pertaining Work Visa for NON EU Candidatw

Hello All,

I have been working for a Switzerland based client and he offered me a job in his Switzerland office. I know there is nothing I can do here. I'm being curious about one thing, How long it will take the employer to prove

that it has made every possible effort to find a worker on the Swiss and European local labour market, the latter if the application concerns a non-European national.

Any specific timeline for this ?

Re: Pertaining Work Visa for NON EU Candidatw

Short answer - no. It depends entirely on whether the canton/Federal government thinks they've done enough. If they don't they can ask them to continue their efforts to find someone.

Re: Pertaining Work Visa for NON EU Candidate

Hello

Thank you so much for the answer.

One more question

Exceptions to the admittance requirements
  1. Service and guarantee work for products from the country of origin

Does this means that if you are working for a very long for Swiss client you cant get some relaxation in rules ?

Pertaining work Visa

Hello All,

Few months back I got an offer from an employer in Basel and I started to work for him as remote employee. Mean time employer published job advertisements in different portals and everything is expired now. Right now I am going to apply for 3 months business visa, I have few question which I want to clear with you all. Any sort of help would be really helpful for me.

1. What is first procedure to apply for Visa ? I know employer needs to do this but still I wanted to know, Also does any one know if there are still any number of visa opened to NON EU candidate ?

2. Instead of applying for 3 months, Would it be possible to apply for 1 year ?

Any help would be much appreciated ?

Thank you all

Re: Pertaining work Visa

Don't know what this 90 day business visa is you're talking about. Are you looking to move here or just continue working remotely?

Re: Pertaining work Visa

Hello

Thank you so much for the response. Basically the employer asked to work from their office for 3 months to get a feel of everything. And in parallel he is proceeding ahead with the visa process as well. Utilimate idea is to relocate to Basel.
