Short term visa to stay untill my work visa is approved

Hi All,

I m from India.
I m currently one of the stranded person and waiting to go back since work permit has expired in April itself.

Currently I have managed to get a new job and they are in process for applying new work permit for me.
The process will take 6 more weeks to approve from labor department of swiss.
Problem is that I cannot stay more since flights are already started and I have to go back to India.

So is there any visa that I can extend my stay since If I go back looking at situation in my country I might not get flights to come back.

Please advice.

Thanks,
Ashy

Re: Short term visa to stay untill my work visa is approved

your potential employer may be able to request a temporary visa to stay, are they willing to ask on your behalf ? Normally non-EU visas take up to 3 months, so I'm not sure about the '6 week' time frame you were given...



Normally, however, for Non-EU you need to apply from outside of Switzerland.



You could try asking for a tourist visa to stay, but the problem is you are also no longer entitled to health insurance etc, so it's a big risk if you stay and are not covered...
