Re: How a non-EU can get a Swiss B Permit

As someone else has pointed out, you will need to find a job first and your potential employer will apply for your work permit. And given the Covid situation right now, it's going to be a bit more difficult than in normal times, which was already not easy.

I'm not sure the local rail company will be your best bet - they are truly a local company and deal almost exclusively in the local languages. I do know of some foreigners working for the SBB but they are in very specialised roles. And English is no longer a distinguishing factor because so many young Swiss can speak fluent English.

But finding a job, whether in Switzerland or elsewhere, is a lot about luck anyway. So good luck with your job search!
