B permit transferability

I looked through the posts (but apologies if i missed something), does anyone know if it is possible to know inadvance whether a B permit is transferrable between companies?

I tried to get a answer from the kreisburo but they claim they can't know this.

For example, I was moved here by my current employer (demonstrating I am needed, they couldnt hire a Swiss or EU citizen, etc.) and now am looking at changing jobs-- will the new employer have to go through the same process or can they just work off my current B? Obviously, it is a bit sensitive so I cannot ask my current employer about this.

Any tips/experiences appreciated!

It can be, but I think the new company does have to go through pretty much the same hoops and your old employer would also have to agree to the move.

To know for sure, contact the following in this order with your permit number.

1. Cantonal alien office

2. Cantonal economy and work office

Re: B permit transferability

Check your residence card. If its written "authorized to work on projects/client", then you cannot switch employers unless they sponsor you. Process is a bit more harder than deputation permits/visas.

Re: B permit transferability

you can call the cantonal work authority and they will check it for you.


If you already have a potential new employer, they can also make the call if they have a copy of your permit.

Re: B permit transferability

If you sill given a B permit for a particular job for which your employer cannot find a Swiss/EU to do it, why would the authorities allow you to transfer to another employer?

Once you get a C permit you can change jobs.
