Renewal of the B permit (EU/EFTA) during coronavirus

Hi!

Can the coronavirus epidemic have a negative effect on my permit B renewal? I am a citizen of the European Union, I meet all the conditions for the "B" permit.

Sent a message to the Kreisbüro to see if there will be a change in the process. I should hear from them by today or the next few days assuming that they have not shutdown or limited operations.

Cantons are not granting new permits for the next 90 days, but whether that means they're also not doing renewals for that period I haven't heard.

Re: Renewal of the B permit (EU/EFTA) during coronavirus

I just heard back from my Kreisbüro. For renewals, they are not sending out invitations until the situation stabilizes. For those whose permits do not need to be immediately renewed (such as myself) this should not be a problem as they are hoping to resume operations by the 19th though.

I am not sure though about new permit applications though.

Yes. Atm everything is shut down until the 19th April, but could change depending on how things go with getting this virus under control.

Re: Renewal of the B permit (EU/EFTA) during coronavirus

Forgot to add to this. At least for Zurich there are no issues for extension of residence permits as per the migration office other than individual Kreisbüros being closed. In that case, we just have to wait until they re-open.

But the issuance of new permits are on hold until the situation normalizes.

Kreisbureaux or Kreisbüro.

Open, but by prior appointment only:

I knew I should have googled that one first

yea- I saw the webpage - it's actually been the same since before they lifted any of the restrictions. I called at the end of April and they said to wait till you could come in.

Just wondered if anyone had experienced anything different. It's easy enough for me to just call.. I always avoid to talking to anyone if at all possible...

Thank you for the link though
