Re: 2020 language requirements for permits

Yes, probably, if you want to upgrade to a B, assuming you can, then you'll need to meet the language requirements.

Any EU/ETFA nationals not on the above list will have to meet the language requirements whenever their permits become due for renewal as far as we know. This has yet to be tested by long term permit holders.

Does anyone have any new information on this? My wife was enrolled in language classes until February but stopped with COVID lockdown, and we had forgotten about the language requirement for the visa renewal. I submitted everything for the renewal except the language certificate in June for a June renewal. Then in August we were asked for the language certificate.

I was told at the migration office today that "you must have the certificate." and that we are to send it in to them ASAP. At this point, we can't register her for a test until the end of October. Does anyone have an idea of what happens if she fails the test? We are only staying in Switzerland through the Spring... would we be kicked out earlier?

Re: New language requirements for B/C permit renewal?

The cantonal website lists several different places from which you can obtain a certificate. See page 3 of this PDF:
https://www.fide-info.ch/doc/08_Spra...ertifikate.pdf

Here's a PDF from Fide with locations and dates. It's not clear if everything in September is full, but you can always try
https://www.fide-info.ch/doc/08_Spra...titutionen.pdf

Definitely try to schedule the exam as soon as possible, and provide proof of the registration to buy some time.

The Swiss seem to like their rules, and at one point someone posted an image here from a Zurich brochure. The image implied a person could be asked to leave if they didn't meet integration requirements.

Re: New language requirements for B/C permit renewal?

Hi All,

I am German citizen, currently on a B-Permit that is going to expire in September 2021. I live in Vaud.

With these stricter regulations/requirements to obtain a C-Permit (proof of language skills and integration) I am a bit unclear if I am excluded from this as a German citizen and will just receive my C-Permit as a replacement for my B-Permit.

Sorry if this was asked here before, but there is a lot of info out here and on the internet.

Thanks
Markus

Re: New language requirements for B/C permit renewal?

As a German you have the right to a C straight after your non-student 5-year B permit (assuming you are not on cantonal/communal benefits nor that you have been unemployed for 12 months or more consecutively). No other requirements can be asked from you thanks to the binding settlement agreement your country has with Switzerland.

Thanks, that was my understanding but good to have it confirmed.
