non-EU, living in Germany, Working in Switzerland

Dear Members,

I got a job offer in Zürich and currently, I am living in the north of Germany. I have a few questions before I accept the job offer.

1. Is it worthful to work in Zürich and live in Konstanz or Waldshut-Tiengen (Salary approx. 130000 CHF, Electrical engineer with PhD and 3 years experience)?

2. I have German Permanent resident permit and I do not want to lose it. Is there any way to get G-permit. As I know it is only for those who are already living near the swiss-german border for at least 6 months?

3. Is it allowed to get B or L permit and live in Germany (to keep the german permanent resident card as well)?

thank you in advance.

You can live in Switzerland and get a B / L, or you live in Germany and get a G. You can´t get a B / L permit living in Germany normally.

It is quite a commute though.

No idea how the non EU part plays a role, assuming your employer knows that they need approval to hire a non EU?

Edit: missed the part of living in North Germany... so no G permit

To be able to get a G permit you would have to have lived in a border zone for at least 6 months as well as have permanent residency in Germany.

https://www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home...willigung.html

So no, you don't qualify for that and it's not possible to have any other type of Swiss permit living outside of the county. So you'd have to make the choice of not taking the job or moving to Switzerland and losing the German permit.

Thank you for your answers.

I understand i am not eligable to get G permit since i do not fulfil the criteria.

What do you think if I rent a small apartment in Switzerland to get B/L permit but actually live in konstanz, is it allowed? Will it make any trouble for me in Germany or in Switzerland? If it is possible, then what about taxes and other stuff?

Sure, pay your health insurance double, pay your taxes double..... Not worth the hassle. Run the risk of losing your permit because you are trying to trick the system? You are non EU, very easy not to extend your permit.

Short answer is no. See roegner's reply. If such a thing was allowed for non-EU nationals you'd be eligible for a G permit.
