Job switch on L permit

Hi All,

I am working in Zurich for our client on L permit valid for a year. I do have discussions ongoing to extend my permit for another year. I am thinking of switching to another organisation before my permit ends, so need help to understand the options I have

1. If I am offered a job in another canton, can new employer raise for my permit without issues? What are challenges in this scenario for new employer or me?
2. If I am offered job in same canton, how will the process look like? Is it possible that I am Able to continue working with new employer and new permit without having to spend a year of cool down period?
3. Can I search for job in other EU countries while working on L permit? How will process look like in this scenario?

Re: Job switch on L permit

Switching jobs isn't possible on a non-EU L permit. They're for a specific project and when that project is finished you're expected to leave the country. You can't be considered for another job here for at least 12 months.

You can look for another job in the EU, nothng to stop you doing that.

And non-EU permits are in short supply.
