Re: Permit C - on Hold - NON-EU - Traveling to CH

the entire issue seems to revolve around 'valid' and 'on hold'. If the email recieved by harpalsingh is true, it means 183 residency is not a must
It's either valid or not valid.
Why not try it & let us know, good Friday thread me thinks

Re: Permit C - on Hold - NON-EU - Traveling to CH

The ultimate arbiter to this question will lie with the airline you use to travel.

A suspended C permit which the traveller only has a copy of a possibly expired document is going to be viewed with suspicion. Remember airlines receive very large fines for bringing in inadmissible passengers, and they may be required to return the passenger on the next flight - even if they have to offload another passenger to do so. This costs them as well.

I would recommend anyone in this situation to get, in writing, written confirmation from Swiss authorities that their documents will be accepted on arrival.

Crossing the land border won’t be an issue but crossing another border into another Schengen country could be problematic. Having something in writing from Swiss authorities would help there too.

Re: Permit C - on Hold - NON-EU - Traveling to CH

I was in a similar situation - with my permit c on hold.
So you can enter Switzerland with that permit but it cannot be used as a valid visa continuously.
What I mean is - I was allowed entry in the country but I had to register again with the cantonal authorities and I was issued a new permit.

So in short - you can enter once but cannot use it to fly in and out continuously

He probably has the original & it may not have expired.
My C permit expiry date was 3 1/2 years after leaving CH, I retained the original document.

So it seems an 'on hold permit C' entitles one to a single entry (like Visa D)

The OP wasn't very clear on this:

and I went to Monturex to give back my Permit C
and
Quote:
Now I still have my permit Valid for more 3 years.

If he has the original document, unaltered, not sure what the issue is. If it's been stamped "cancelled" or "suspended" or had a corner cut off there may be one.

It was my understanding that suspended permits had to be returned to the commune of issuance, but perhaps this isn't in all cantons.

I think this is very much cantonal dependent. A friend of mine put the permit "on hold" and had to physically hand it back. Thus he would not have anything to show to the officials upon entry except his passport. But he's an EU citizen so it didn't matter much.
