Re: How to check if the B permit non-eu is open or restricted ?

Finally, found out mine is an open B permit. Can I continue living in this canton and work in say Zurich. My employer said I had to get approval from Zurich canton as well.

As your employer said, both cantons would have to approve. But having an open permit at least means it's possible. :

Re: How to check if the B permit non-eu is open or restricted ?

Reviving this thread as I've received my 5th permis, but never this wondrous letter with codes that all you EFers seem to have.

Did you receive this with the permit? Does your employer receive this?

I have always received the card sticky taped to a piece of paper listing the rules and regulations of the permit itself. No personalized info of validity, type, observations etc.

On the card itself, its been the same old plastic one I've been receiving with just a new validity date.

Aside: For people in Geneva, FYI, I applied for the permit myself because my employer in canton Vaud refused to (EPFL "sorry we don't do permit renewals for employees in other cantons). I used to subscribe to the "employers must" apply for the employee, but it seems that you can do it yourself. All I had was the form signed at least by the employer and a new contract. All the "obligatory" particulars listed on the form in regards to job search, number of employees etc etc I did not include. Geneva

This is your 5th permit so you've been here a while and might be subject to different rules. A newly-arrived non-EU person wouldn't be able to walk into Geneva and ask for a permit without some sort of employer involvement.

I completely agree.. however even for a 5th timer, I should not have been able to as a non-EU if you follow what is written on the Geneva website or their forms. The only employer involvement was the letter of extension of my previous contract and their stamp on my permit renewal form. I donít know how special I am though, seeing Iím still stuck with a formation permis even though the submitted the form I used is for real job not paid training/study/Postdoc.

But @3Wishes, any insight on this code letter?

Your employer did their part by extending the contract and stamping the request. They didn't have to prove anything new. Are you saying you're on a student B even though you're not doing studying or doing a post-doc? Sounds strange to me but then I don't know Geneva's rules.

Unfortunately I'm not really sure about code letters. Based on what I've read here on EF, I thought it was a code on the back of your permit.

Anyone else have more insight into that? If klausenhauser has a student permit would it even have that code letter I've read about?

Ah, I also thought there part was sending it to the authorities as per what is written on the form and the website (in Geneva)

Yes, that is right. I was previously a postdoc in Geneva, so perhaps the authorities are confused as now I am at EPFL but not as a professor but as a staff scientist. When I submitted my application, I also acted dumb and asked hwz I was still under formation and they said it was a mistake... I will have to go there and see in person once again (Yipppe Geneva)

As per my permit, I also have no written code. I just have under indications "formation aves activitť"
