Non EU B permit extension papers - Power of attorney

Dear EF members
Due to covid iam stuck outside of switzerland and my b permit extension is due. Authorities asked me to submit in person at kriesburo they are not accepting postal application.Due to lockdown, iam not able to appear in person at the kreisburo. Though the authorities extended the time to submit.
I would like to know if I can make power of attorney/authority to someone/lawyer who can submit on my behalf.
Or is there any way to submit. Pls guide me

Why stuck? Switzerland will allow you to enter, so I expect they will expect you to return.

Re: Non EU B permit extension papers - Power of attorney

You are allowed to enter in Switzerland and will have to stay in quarantine if you come from a risky area.Therefore, no,reason to not renew your permit in person.

Stuck due to quarantine for 3 weeks and then after that post covid test negative only I will be able to travel. So it will take 5 weeks to get everything clear

Have you got COVID? If you are just in quarantine due to travelling most countries will let you leave the country during this time!

Yes iam in quarantine now, I can travel after that and then I can submit the extension papers.
My question is through power of attorney is it possible to submit my papers now on my behalf so that delay can be avoided

Re: Non EU B permit extension papers - Power of attorney

Just call the commune. My B Permit was due for renewal end of April. But because of COVID, lockdowns, etc... I finally renewed it sometime in June.

I’d just give them a call - and explain your situation.

Re: Non EU B permit extension papers - Power of attorney

I was of the impression that non-EU B permits were renewed by the employer. Have things changed?

It could be a student or post-student permit, which are done by the applicant.

Your profile says you're Indian, so I assume you're there. I see two reasons why you'd be in quarantine:
1 - you have a positive test or have been exposed to someone with a positive test, or
2 - you have only recently arrived there

1 - If you're in quarantine since you're ill or have a positive test, make that clear to the Swiss authorities. Provide them proof of the test. Ask if they'd really like you to travel internationally right now and appear at the municipality in person.

2 - If you're in quarantine because you recently arrived, I've not seen any quarantines of 3 weeks. I've read from 7-14 days. There are exceptions/exemptions one can request if the person doesn't plan on staying very long in the country.

I've not read that a person needs a negative test in order to leave the country, although some airlines might request that.

I am not sure a power of attorney would work, unless it's already in place. POA have to be notarized in person. If you're truly in quarantine you should not be exposing anyone, not even a notary.

How much time do you have before the permit expires? Do you have an employer who might be able to intervene on your behalf?

Re: Non EU B permit extension papers - Power of attorney

I am in the same situation. B Permit expires in January, am starting the renewal process now because once I am out of Swiss quarantine I am heading to UK for a while and coming back requires planning for further quarantine periods both here and there.


You may have to call them at least three times. My Swiss German colleague did it for me, and got conflicting answers each time.



The general outcome was you start the process at the local Gemeinde office, which has to be done in person. They will send the details to the Migrationsamt, who will give you an appointment to have your photo taken/other information collected. Obviously, this can only be done in person too. The new permit (now a plastic card type) will eventually be sent to you by registered post.



We were told the only bit you can do a POA for is the collecting of the registered letter.


Hence I also have to fit a further 4 weeks quarantine into the run up to Christmas.


It is annoying that it cannot be done remotely - but as I am asking them to renew my ability to live and work here, it sort of makes sense that I have to be physically here at the time.


Kind regards




Ian

Re: Non EU B permit extension papers - Power of attorney

Just to say there are still places in the world where Covid restrictions are in place or related lack of flights, etc. that make it impossible or near impossible to get to CH. One colleague is still stuck in asia due to no flights from that particular place.
