As a new Non-EU L permit holder, what document(s) and/or id(s) will I receive?
 
This question is partly brought about by my attempt to get a credit card from PostFinance, but I think the question makes more sense here rather than in the finance/banking subforum.

They asked for a variety of things; copy of my work contract, payslip, etc. One thing they asked for was a copy of my "residence permit." So I sent them a copy of my biometric ID, which says "L" on it, so to me it is proof of residence permit. But they mailed back again asking for "residence permit." I don't know what else they would want. It's been about 2 months for me here, and I don't know if I will receive anything else from the city. Like I said, I have the biometric L card, but besides that all I have is a paper "Meldebestätigung fur Ausländliche Person" which is a signed document they gave me as temporary proof of resident permit being granted, while I waited for things to come in the mail.

What does "residence permit" mean? Is it a paper thing I will get, or is it just the biometric card alone, and I need to figure out why PostFinance didn't like it?

L is a short term permit, they want to see a B or C permit probably.

Oh that makes sense. I didn't even think of that.

So it's true that I've received everything from the city that I'm going to, and that if asked to see my "residence permit," indeed that just means the biometrit id?

No, that means that they probably won´t give you a card unless you have a B or C permit as you already sent them a copy of your L permit.

Sorry, I did understand that, my wording was just bad. I just wanted to confirm, for future reference, if anyone else wants to see my "residence permit," they are talking about the biometric card.

Yes. Your residence permit is the credit card-sized thing with biometrics.
