How long before an L permit expires can you get a new one

Do you automatically get a B after L?
Can I get my Permit sorted out from GB as I am staying with family looking after them during the virus situation.

No
No

Thought you said youd never go back to the UK?

Maybe give your townhall a call and ask them what is possible or email them. Ours are quite responsive and answer within a day.

Also make sure you have a valid permit as otherwise you may not be allowed to enter Switzerland worst case.

No and no.

Swiss goverment has suspended the issuing of any new permits for the next 3 months and you can't renew unless you're in the country. I would guess with an apprenticeship it would be another L anyway.

Also since you aren't in the country I doubt you'd be entitled to any Swiss benefits as per your other thread.

I thought you wanted to claim benefits or Kurzarbeit. You can't do that if you are in the UK.

If your permit expires whilst you are in the UK, they are not going to let you back into Switzerland anytime soon either!

Re: How long before an L permit expires can you get a new one

People now physically outside of Switzerland, are allowed to return to Switzerland if
  1. they are Swiss, or
  2. if they already reside in Switzerland (= have a current, valid permit, and have your real-life domicile here, including a home and personal possessions in the home and a job or at least a recent job).

As far as I understand it,
  • while Justin's situation is 2., and he is now on vacation in the UK, so he will be able to return to Switzerland
  • if, however, that L permit expires, then, Justin, you will not be allowed to travel into Switzerland, until the corona crisis is over.

Then all you have to do it to make sure you travel back into Switzerland before your L-Permit expires.

Please bear in mind that finding a flight, booking a seat, and all steps around booking, etc., are potentially more work than they used to be, so getting from your nan back to your flat in Basel will probaby take longer to organise than it ususally did, before.

In asking this, Justin, you speak from my heart. So many of us want to know when, when, when will it be over. But we don't know, and no-one can predict the end. And I think Roegner is right: not soon.
