C Permit, Non EU, Work in Germany

I was wondering if someone could help me with this a bit complicated situation. I am a non EU resident in Switzerland since six years with a C permit. I have a job opportunity in Germany which I am very interested in. Since I have almost all my life here girlfriend, friends, other stuff here and I don't want to lose my C permit, I have the following open points:
  • Is it possible for me to register as a Wochenaufenthalter. Would that be sufficient to keep my C permit?
  • Legally speaking, how often would I need to return in order not to lose my C permit.
  • How would it work with the taxes? Will I pay taxes in Germany or in Switzerland
  • How would it work with health insurance? Can I somehow use my Swiss insurance in Germany or vice versa
  • Is there is anything I am missing or should worry about

Many thanks for the help!

Re: C Permit, Non EU, Work in Germany

I don't speak German so I don't know what Wochenaufenthalter is but I can help you a bit with the rest.
Have a look here:

I have the impression that you have to stay more than half of the year in Switzerland to be considered a Swiss resident but it is only an impression.
What I know for sure is that a person I know (EU nationality, Swiss C permit) works 100% in a EU country, is taxed there at source for the professional income which is excepted from any further taxation in CH.(Tax declaration still to be filled in in CH but the income from that work is not taxed).
Furthermore, the same person got an exception from having a Swiss health insurance.
On another note, you might also think about putting your C permit on hold.

Re: C Permit, Non EU, Work in Germany

Thanks a lot for the information. It is nice to know that someone else has done it. After further research, it seems indeed to be a very unusual case that there is no really solid answer for. The result of my research is that somehow I need to justify that my "center of life" is still here in Switzerland. I was wondering if the person you mentioned is married or having a family here in Switzerland? Somehow having a family here is being considered as a very convincing argument for qualifying as a center of life.

Many thanks again for your help!

Re: C Permit, Non EU, Work in Germany

You will need a German Cross Border Commuter Permit. As a non-EU, Swiss permit C holder you must be a resident of the border zone. All of canton Zurich, but the counties Horgen and Affoltern are considered border zone. In addition you must have lived in the border Zone for at least 6 months.

You are only allowed to take up work in the German border Zone. This is: Stadt Freiburg, die kreisfreie Stadt Kempten (Allgäu), die Landkreise Breisgau - Hochschwarzwald, Lörrach, Waldshut-Tiengen, Schwarzwald - Baar-Kreis, Tuttlingen, Konstanz, Sigmaringen, Biberach, Ravensburg, Bodenseekreis, Lindau (Bodensee) und Oberallgäu.

Only EU-27 (EU minus Croatia) and EFTA nationals have full freedom of movement and are not bound to the border zones.

Re: C Permit, Non EU, Work in Germany

You are welcome. Indeed, the person is married here and also is a firefighter. By the way, you could integrate in the Swiss society and offer valuable assistance, too like this. Check here:
