Non-EU permit extension advice-Same project different canton

I have a restricted L tied to my employer. I still work for the same employer and on the same project, but I have work permit in Bern, now they plan to place me in Zurich to replace my colleague who was in charge.

Now my permit expires soon, can my employer directly applies B to Zurich, so the work permit documents is filed to Zurich authority instead of Bern. But my employer said it is difficult to extend to Zurich, is it true?

I think at this point it is the fact that a work permit in Zurich could be considered a new application which are not being processed for the time being given the current situation.

Can they apply for an extension of your L for the time being? It is renewable after the first year before the possibility of getting a B is considered.

No idea. So in this case, transfer to Zurich, the application is considered as the new L instead of B?? I just want to know the chance, when applying directly to B Zurich...

If your permit is tied to your employer, the employer has to request the permit and cannot ask for a type of permit, the authorities will decide what you get.


Is this your first year on an L permit?

Roegner is right. The authorities will decide what permit you will get.

I'm from the French speaking part. Based on my experience, it depends on two factors:
1) How long is your contract? If it's one year or less, you will get a L permit. If it's 2 years, you maybe eligible for B permit but it's very unlikely you will get it. It used to be possible before 2014 referendum.
2) There is a quota of different types of work permits for every canton based on nationality. If you apply early in the year, your chance of getting a 'better' permit or not being rejected is higher. Even if you have a permanent contract, it's still possible to receive a L permit if the quota is finished.

The best person to ask is your HR manager, preferably somebody skilled at handling non-European applications. He/she can decide what is the risk of switching cantons and is able to specify a B permit request in the application form or motivation letter. It's up to the authorities to make the final decision.

Basically, your options are:
1) Request your work permit from Bern. Either you have to commute or there is a possibility to have a second residence in another canton. You should be able to find more info online.
2) Request your work permit from Zurich.
