Re: Relationship between company and Work Permit

I have seen 11 weeks for canton approval for someone on this forum so now I am benchmarking to that. I hope it doesn't go beyond that.

Could well be, could not be. Do not benchmark that to anything, it takes as long as it takes.


At least you haven´t had a denial, have you?

No the authorities just say it's pending when asked by HR.

I have a feeling the actual status is processing, i.e. things are going on behind the scenes but you don't know what they are. It's very unlikely that after 8 weeks nothing at all is happening and the authorities haven't even started looking at the documentation.

Re: Relationship between company and Work Permit

Just confirmed by HR that Canton approved it and now it's with federal authorities and also the person dealing with my case is on holiday coming back after 1 week. Keeping my fingers crossed now.

Great news! This means your qualifications have been recognized. The federal level (SEM) just oversees if the Canton makes any mistakes and see if there is quota available. Once you have this process approved, your Work Permit is basically approved. (not fully yet the end of the story, though)

Congratulations. Now is the time to start looking for a place to live and do inform yourself about customs procedure (in case you bring more than just a single suitcase).

I think he stills needs to wait for the second step (federal SEM) approval before looking at the settling thing in Switzerland.

Re: Relationship between company and Work Permit

HR informed me that if federal approves it then labour market authority will also. So it the federal approval which is pending. But HR also said that the most critical is Canton approval since they do most of the preliminary screening and hence take a longer time, whereas the other approvals mostly come and are much faster. I hope that is indeed the case.

I wish you will go through the federal step.

For myself, frankly speaking, the first step took 1 week. The second step of mine was also about 1 week.

Sorry for mixing up your gender, no one can tell from your user name anyway.

Please keep us in the loop about your progress.

Re: Relationship between company and Work Permit

Hi Guys,

I am still waiting for federal. How often and when does federal reject if Canton approved it without asking for any additional documents?

I am starting to scratch my head now after 11 weeks.

I heard that rejection by federal SEM is unlikely. It checks if the canton has done the job right and also checks if quota is available.

I have no idea why your case takes so long. For me, the canton and federal things took 2-3 weeks.

Re: Relationship between company and Work Permit

Thanks for your prompt response. I have been checking other threads but can see conflicting information, some say federal is what makes the critical decision and Canton approves all, while others say vice versa.

One of the checks that federals do that the canton cannot do on its own is that you do not pose a threat to the security of Switzerland (i.e. you are not a known terrorist, you are not recorded as a wanted criminal in Interpol/Europol/etc, such kinds of stuff).
Another is just a sanity check that the job that you've been approved for by the canton is really highly qualified and well paid, just in case you had pals at the cantonal migration office who waved you through. Doesn't seem to be your case.
Finally, every canton has its own share of quota for new permits per year and half of the total annual quota is held as a reserve by federals. If the canton wants you but has already exhausted its quota they need to ask SEM to grant a permit out of that reserve.
I guess SEM can refuse it if they run out or if it's really tight and they want to give them to someone else they think is better but honestly I've never heard of that happening.

Re: Relationship between company and Work Permit

Thanks for such a clear explanation. As per this I really hope federal approves it.

I have been checking the remaining work permit status and see quite a lot remaining,
since there was an increase in the number of permits this year for non-eu, though a breakdown at cantonal level is not available on the SEM website.

Re: Relationship between company and Work Permit

As an update, I am still waiting for my permit. Federal did come back asking for more clarification on company's efforts of finding locals to which company responded 3 weeks back. Original clarification was already very comprehensive and genuine so this came as a surprise.

As per experienced people here, how long does federal take in responding either approval or rejection in such a scenario?

Is asking for clarification a negative indication already and they would reject it or is there still possibility?

Similar experiences would really help me.

Total time I have been waiting is 3.5 months.

I feel sorry for such a long wait. I personally feel curious which profession you are in?

Re: Relationship between company and Work Permit

Rejected with an amazing reason that company should hire someone junior, why do they need someone senior😀😀 and junior people are in good supply locally. Company went back again why they need a senior person and I am yet to hear the feedback now.
