Chance of work permit after cantonal approval? (Non EU)

Hi there,

I'm
- a non-EU holding a master diploma from ETH in STEM field,
- got a job offer from a Zurich-based Swiss Startup company,
- my student permit expires in Feb 2021, am currently working for them less than 15 hours per week

My company has applied for my permit, one week ago the office asked them to prove how my study is related to the job. Today morning my company informed me they the status has changed from pending to 'bewilligt'. Since it's only been one week, I guess it's the approval from the cantonal level. I am wondering what's the chance of being reject at a federal level? Would the canton ask me to submit any documents?

Thanks!

Hello, welcome to the forum.

I guess if the canton approved your permit, that's all you need, congrats

Permits are in the hands of cantons, not on the CH federal government. So, you have a permit. If the canton refused the permit, you may appeal to federal authorities. But, that's not your case.

Slim. It would mean the canton did not follow the law and regulations as this is more or less the only reason it can be rejected on the federal level. Congratulation.
