RAV support with L permit

Hello everyone

There is a lot of discussion about RAV support in this forum but unfortunately i didnít find the answer I need, so I will open discussion about this over again..

In this moment I have L visa( I have open work contract but I still canít get B permit, but that is another issue...), and probably i will lose my job because of some company issues. I have worked for this company exactly 13 months ( 9 months with job contract and 4 months with temporary buro)
My questions are:
1. Is is possible to get support from RAV even though I have L Permit.
2. Is my 13 mouths of work is enough to get the RAV support?

Thank you all
I wish you a good day

Re: RAV support with L permit

First off, you need to differentiate between the RAV who are the Unemployment office and the Arbeitslosenkasse who are the Insurance company that make the payments. They are separate entities with their own responsibilities and it is the Arbeitslosenkasse eligibility you need to be concerned with. As far as I know there are no eligibility requirements to register with the RAV.

Yes. The first time I was unemployed I was on an L permit. Depending on when your L Permit expires, you may experience some delays in your first unemployment payment. My L permit expired at the end of the contract and I was in the catch 22 situation for a while where the Migrationsamt wanted to see proof of income in the form of eligibility for unemployment insurance and the Kasse wanted to see my Permit before they paid me.

What were you doing before the 13 months with this company? If you worked in an EU country then your National Insurance payments while working there would count towards your eligibility. It may also be that you are entitled to a lower Insurance payout based on working 12 months, but I can't remember all the limits.

Edit: Can't find the link to the eligibility table, but I did find a link that said that eligibility is working 12 months in the last 2 years, so you should be OK to get something. I think if you have worked 18 months in 2 years then the benefit is higher (but that may only apply if you have children).

Answers to your questions:

This RAV St Gallen document "Essential Information for RAV Clients" provides information on eligibility and RAV processes (English):

These two RAV online courses also contain essential information on RAV processes. Be sure to print out the certificate at the end of each course for your future RAV adviser:

Just curious, if I may ask: how did you manage to get out of this catch 22?

In the end, I went in to the Kasse and explained the situation to them and they agreed to make the first payment on the basis that I had to send them a copy of my permit within 30 days. A copy of the monthly statement they send, which shows entitlement periods at the bottom, was enough for the Migrationsamt to issue the permit.
