Non EU National working in Liechtenstein

Dear All,

I am a Non EU national working at a Company limited by shares (AG) in Liechtenstein. I am having a work permit of 1 year. But according to my company, it not easy to extend my work permit after one year.

As I checked below link and I am thinking there is a possibility to get 'B' work permit if I am a specialist or another kind of qualified employee with completed professional experience. Since I am a graduate in Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science and Engineering and working as a Project Manager in position, having 8 years experience in Software Development, I think its possible.

Could you please let me know if there is any criteria for selecting the specialist or qualified employee in Liechtenstein and also the possibilities of extending the work permit after 1 year?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
John

What permit do you have currently ? L ?
How did your company manage to get the initial permit in the first place ?
Is there a difficulty in renewing your permit or converting to a B ?

Which link , by the way ?

Your situation is not very clear to make any reasonable comment.

Take into account that you are an IT guy competing with all EU nationals. Will indeed not but easy - but perhaps not impossible.

Sorry the link was missed when I done the first thread. It was https://www.llv.li/inhalt/117231/amt...y-requirements

At the first time, my employer applied for B work permit and it was rejected by the Govt. There for employer applied L work permit and got the same in time. I am not sure about the exact reason why B work permit is rejected for me.

According to employer, its not easy to get visa and they are telling so many difficulties in renewing my permit or converting to a B visa.

That's why I posted here to find out if there is any criteria for selecting specialist or qualified employee in Liechtenstein or if there any other reason to reject visa.

I am still not sure what kind of permit you have. Liechtenstein Residence and work permit , or Swiss Residence Permit with Liechtenstein Work Permit ?

In general, extending a permit is easier than applying for a new Permit. Appears you have crossed the difficult hurdle since you are already working in LI, renewal in most cases should be a formality unless you are on deputation/secondment.

Now I have Kurzaufenthaltsbewilligung (L), the one you can see here in the second paragraph, https://www.llv.li/onlineschalter/formular/397

Its about 6 months now since I started working here at Liechtenstein and only 6 more months to go with L permit. After that I have to try B permit, but I checked with my employer along the information you have mentioned here, and they are still telling that it's only up to 1 year (6 more months from now) and after that I have to go back to India and come after 6 months again for 1 year.

According to your opinion, its easy to get Aufenthaltsbewilligung (B) if the person already completed successfully with 1 year of Kurzaufenthaltsbewilligung (L) in Liechtenstein?

Re: Non EU National working in Liechtenstein

The company needs to apply for it, not you.

If the company says no, then it's no.

As Tom correctly mentioned above , it really is up-to the company to go that extra mile and convince the authorities to issue you an extension or a B permit. As a Non EU individual , unfortunately you don't have much claim to permits without your company's backing

Okay. Thank you for the information. But if there is any salary criteria which proves I am specialist? Some of friends says company is able to prove that I am specialist by saying salary in certain extent only (Something like >7000 franc). Is there any such criteria to select a specialist?

Most of the time you can 2 years an L before you can go for a B. If your salary wasn´t high enough, you wouldn´t have received a permit at all. I do not think that the salary is the main decision factor.

Re: Non EU National working in Liechtenstein

Hello All,

Hope you are doing good and sorry to bother you. I am currently holding a Indian Passport working in Malaysia in Digital Marketing. I got one potential employer from liechtenstein. But thing is that they are also quite new to hire Non EU, they said will research meanwhile asked me to do if I get any info.

I have question to swissindian that may I know how you got hired to liechtenstein in L Visa (I saw the link you gave) and where did you stayed (because my employer said we cannot stay even if we have cross border commuter permit to work). My Potential employer wanted to check how I can get to stay in Switzerland or Austria and commute to liechtenstein. Can you give some info based on your experience?

Also to others if you know any info it will be really helpful

Re: Non EU National working in Liechtenstein

Actually I am not sure how I got the L visa exactly. Its all done by the company itself.

In my case, I was working with the same company for the last 8 years with one of their subsidiary in India. I came here to work and interact with the clients of my company and also get trained in business logic of our products.

And now my company is planning to extend my visa and they have checked with government several times, but unfortunately me or my company didn't get any positive information yet.

Thanks Swissindian for your prompt revert. Oh i understand the same. So you commute from Switzerland or Austria to Liechtenstein or you stay in the Liechtenstein and work? Sorry for too many questions. ,meanwhile i will ask my potential employer to check how we can get L Visa.
