Experiences with permit applications

Hello all

I'm currently in the process of a permit application.

I couldn't find a similar thread, and maybe others will find it useful too. So, what are your experiences with the Migrationsamt and the permit application?

They sent me a letter with some questions 1Ĺ week ago, and today I called them, and they told me that a second letter with more questions is on the way. This is of course completely fair and I happily document anything they request. But is this normal?

Re: Experiences with permit applications

Welcome to the Forum.

What kind of permit? Are you EU or non-EU? Are you married to a Swiss or EU? Do you want to be a student, work here, start a company here, you're independently wealthy and just want to live here, or what?

Unfortunately your post is far too vague to offer any relevant info. You don't have to share your life story, but a bit more info could help.

A few more details could be useful.
Which permit are you applying for? B/L/Driving/Diving etc.
Are you EU?
Do you have a contract from a company here?

Re: Experiences with permit applications

Thanks for your responses I had actually described my situation first, but decided to take it out to make the thread more 'general' so more people could benefit from it

But for my case I'm an EU citizen, working full-time on an unlimited contract for an employer in my home country. We're using Payroll Plus to ensure all contributions are paid and all registrations have been done properly My application is for a B permit

Re: Experiences with permit applications

Itís normal you get asked such questions as your employer is not based in Switzerland
