CDL expired on 12.09.2020 requested for an extension permit stay on 11.09.2020 in GE

Dear leaders.


I was currently holding a CDL through my work and it expired yesterday on 12.09.2020. However I sent a letter to OCPM Geneva requesting an extension. I live with my Fiancée and we are preparing to get married and traveling back home to Rwanda during travel restrictions would interfere with our plans. I sent a request late because I was suppose to be starting a new contract (with the new contract I would have renewed my CDL with no issue) which was delayed due to administrative issue.


My question is, Is this going to be regarded as an overstay since I applied one day before?


I am reay stressed over this.


Anyonr who were in similar case where they applied for a t-permit extension late?


Please share you insights.


I don't want to be considered an overstay.

I thought CDL is a federal matter issued only through your organisation. I didn't think the OCPM has anything to do about it. Last I knew there was a grace period of 2 or 3 months but all of this should be through the organisation who requests it.

Yes It is a Federal matter.
That's why because I was no longer with the organization I requested to stay in Switzerland through my non married partner who has a Swiss B permit. According the law they passed in August of non married partners being able to come and stay here during Covid restrictions on travel

According to the Swiss regulations regarding CDL https://www.eda.admin.ch/content/dam...anentes_EN.pdf the CDL holder is automatically granted a courtesy period of two months from the end of their service to organise their departure, find a new job etc.. Those non-schengen nationals have to leave before the expiry of the two month courtesy period while the CDL is still valid.

So if you marry and get a permit through your spouse or the administrative hold-up is rectified within two months, you are fine.

I was arleady in those two months period. I was to sign a new contract and at the last minute there were some delays in administration. That's why I applied for a request for a stay permit through my Fiance. But I have arleady used the two months.

Where did you hear about it? Source?

If, as you said, you have already used up the two months of your courtesy period, you are indeed illegal in Switzerland now
