B permit- question regarding travel

Hi,

I would like to know if anyone had an experience entering Switzerland through Italy as a B-permit holder (non-EU). Would it be a problem to clear immigration in say, Milan airport, with a Swiss B-permit? If I have to obtain email confirmation to be on safer side, whom should I get it from- the embassy in Italy or Switzerland or Home country?

Thank you.

Let's say, if you were flying into Milan...
1. ...where would you be flying from?
2. ...why would you not have access to your passport?

You will be fine. A residence permit issued by a Schengen member state (which CH is) can be used instead of a visa to cross the Schengen border at any point.

Blueangel: I assume OP is from a non-EU country which needs a Schengen visa to enter Schengen territory, so just a passport won't do

Thanks for the clarification. I was just hoping that the OP wasn't trying to to fly into Italy with only a B permit.
