UK citizen, Brexit: Obtaining C permit in future

Hi All,

I have been researching quite a lot on UK-Swiss bilateral agreements post-Brexit and wanted to clarify a point with someone knowledgeable.

I have been living in Switzerland since 2019 with a B permit, so will have my rights protected. Per explainer for the agreement between UK and Switzerland, on citizens’ rights following the withdrawal of the UK from the EU and the Free Movement of person Agreement (specifically per point 19),

'UK nationals who are living lawfully in Switzerland at the specified date will be able to continue living there. Equally, Swiss citizens who have been living lawfully in the UK at the specified date will be able to continue living in the UK. After five years’ residence, those in scope of the agreement will be able to apply for settled status in the UK or permanent residence in Switzerland.'

Is this straightforward, as in just apply for a C permit or alternatively Migration office automatically will send you a C permit in due course? or do I have to meet all the new permanent residency requirement i.e. language skills and all? I don't mind either but would like to prepare in advance.

Appreciate your response on this. If this has already been covered by a different thread, please kindly point me to it. Thanks in advance.
