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!

Just wanted to throw another option out there - do you happen to work for a multinational company who would be willing to send you on a secondment?

I have almost the same background as you, but I work in finance instead. I moved here two years ago as my company was willing to place me on a secondment and I received a project work permit, valid for a maximum of 2 years (although they did just extend it for another 6 months).

The catch is that you have to have an employment contract with the Australian office, and your salary will need to be adjusted to match Swiss standards (not something all employers are willing to pay).
Unfortunately the company I work at right now is big in Australia, New Zealand, China and some part in France but it is not available in Switzerland

Re: Australian to Swiss Work Permit

It was actually the case for me too, as a non-EU resident. The employer applied for me for the permit and offered me the contract!

1. Marry a Swiss or EU national already living in CH. 2. Move to CH and get residency card. 3. Find a job.
Does this really work for an EU, albeit non Swiss, citizen? I am facing an issue where my spouse (non married) is a South Korean working in Germany (studied in UK) and I am a German speaking EU citizen (Austria) wanting studying in Switzerland potentially looking to work in ZUR but it is highly dependent whether my spouse will ever find a job here or not.

How would the work application process change for her? Could she then already state that the employer doesn't have to get a special work permit for her?

It changes it because the non-EU hiring criteria is no longer applied. See your other thread

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

my girlfriend is from a 3rd country with a student B permit (no lucrative activity) and because of this she's struggling to get hired.
Applying for the concubine visa, will give her a lucrative activity B permit? Or would it make it any easier for her to find a job here?

Again, as said before, ask your cantonal migration office. Concubine permits seem to be very subjective regarding the ability to work or not. Only they can tell you if it would be possible for her.

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

Hello, I know this is not the right place to ask. I'd like to know if my address will be updated with the immigration office since I moved to a new house. Is it automatically updated? Because they sent letters for the permit there the first time and I'm thinking they might send notice of expiry to same address. I need some clarity on this please

No, you need to inform the authorities and anyone else that you moved.

okay. But we are under the social dienst, will they update it with immigration or do I need to send an email to the immigration office separately?

You need to inform your gemeinde and the cantonal migration office because a new permit with your new address will have to be issued - and paid for of course.
