L Permit Cooling Down Period

Hello Community,

Does the cool down period also apply from L permit (under a short term contract) to B permit (Non-EU [under permanent contract] or Family Reunification)? This is in case the L permit will expire before the new permit is issued.

Thanks!

Not if the application for the B is already in.

Thanks for your reply Medea!

So, if the L permit expires and the application is not in then the cool down period applies? Even though it is from L to B? I thought that the cool down period was only for short stay permits (L). How much time is the cool down?

If its from L (short stay contract) to L (Non-EU permanent or Family Reunification) then, is it the same?

What on Earth is a cool down period? Never heard of such a thing related to residence permits!

The cooling off period is the period one has to be outside Switzerland before being able to apply again for a permit.

(Mostly if not exclusively a short term working permit issue)

Cooling off periods do not apply for B permits, however if your L has expired and you have not yet applied for another permit you must leave the country anyway.

I assume just for non-EU then? I have friends who have had back to back L permits for years.

So, if you already applied for the new permit and your current permit expires, are you allowed to stay until you get a decision?
