Work permit for non-EU student in Germany

Hello Everyone,

I recently graduated from my master's course in Germany. I have found a suitable job position in Switzerland. However the employer said before inviting for interview he needs more clarification on my visa status. If anyone had an experience with similar situation?

My questions are as follows.

1) Currently my visa status changed from student to job search visa in Germany. If in case I get a interview call and I get selected, my employer has to proceed and submit my application for work visa. Is this right?

2) Do I have to be in my home country if at all there is interview for visa? or I can attend interview from Swiss embassy in Germany?

3) What are the chances that a graduates visa will be approved?

Thanks for your time.

Im pretty sure your visa status in Germany means nothing in Switzerland. If youd done your Masters in Switzerland, then it would make a difference, but not when youve done it in Germany. You will be treated as any non-EU applicant.

I haven't but the primary message would be that Switzerland is not Germany.

Re: Work permit for non-EU student in Germany

You could apply for a permit/visa anywhere, but it is strongly recommended to do at your current place of residence. https://www.swiss-visa.ch/

No kind of German permit will give a non-EU any advantage in job hunting in Switzerland. Actually, no kind of any non-Swiss permit will give anyone an advantage.

The employer must show that they could not find any Swiss, EU, EFTA, or non-EU person already in Switzerland with an work permit for the position. This alone takes a few months.
Art. 21 FNIA https://www.admin.ch/opc/en/classifi...index.html#a21

In other words and in conclusion: Proceed with the job application, try and hop for your best, but in the same time also look for a job in Germany. It is easier to quit a job for a new one than do find a job when you do not have one at all.
