question about length of permit G

Hi all,

Iíve just moved to France, and will commence work as a governess in geneva. Since the family I will work for donít speak English or French, i said Iíd help in getting my work permit and registering me with avs etc.

I went to the OCPM today to get the application for the permit G (frontalier). The necessary documents to provide with the application do not include proof of employment such as the work contract. As far as I know, if your contract is for more than 1 year, you will get a 5 year permit - if less than a year, it will be for the duration of employment. How are they to determine the length of the permit if you donít submit a work contract?

Thanks for any info!

Re: question about length of permit G

"G-permits are usually valid for one year, and are limited to the border zone of the issuing canton."

Re: question about length of permit G

Ah I should probably mention I am UK citizen and I think what you quoted only applies to third- country nationals?

You are correct. There is no border zone for EU nationals.

Your problem may start in 60 days....

Re: question about length of permit G

This should make it clearer.
