What does a `Stellenantritt` file from the migration office mean?

Hi there

I'm a non-EU Swiss university graduate and my company is applying for a work permit for me. Today we got a file from the migration office with the title 'STELLENANTRITT' with a Zulassungscode of 1402. It's valid since March and no ending date.

I thought it might be a provisional approval or something, but it was also written: 'Ist zur Ausuebung des Berufes eine gewerbe- oder gesundheispolizeiliche Bewilligung oder eine aehnliche Ermaechtigung notwendig, muss sie zusaetzlich eingeholt werden'. My German is limited and it seems I'll need to apply for some extra permit.

My question is:
Does this `stellenantritt` file mean they have approved or they just got the information from my company that they want to hire me?

Thanks!

Can your employer not ask the migration office?

The last part means, if you need professional approval, you must get that separate to the work permit..... ie if you are a Dr and need your medical qualifications recognising.

Edit: A bit of googling shows that 1402 is probably the permit you have been given (looks like a B).

thank you for your answer! They sent the scan to me today, i'm just super curious myself right now.

Asking them should be a good idea!

Hello,

Check this other EF thread. It seems the Zulassungscode 1402 means B permit. https://www.englishforum.ch/permits-...rmit-type.html

About the Bewilligung, it's just like Island Monkey wrote, does your job needs some kind of license? Doctor, dentist?

Thanks! I don't think i'll need some extra permits to do my work, it was just written in that letter from the migration office. Good to know that it is not referring to work permit!

I checked other threads too, but I am just unsure if this letter/file form the migration office is an authorization or just informing me that they have received the request to hire me

There is no such thing as a work permit. What you get is a residence permit. Which allows you to live and work here.

Only in a very few specific cases a B permit with no work entitlement may be issued, usually a trailing spouse or similar. Student permits have their own special rules, which I'm not familiar with, but I believe they either disallow any paid work or limit the hours you can work, something like that. SWK will be along shortly if it's relevant.

thank you for the answer! sorry for using the wrong word, i mean residence permit

So you think this file meanings they are issuing this permit? I have been on a student visa for 2 years and have recently graduated.

What's is SWK, if I may ask?

You have been here on a student permit
The visa allows you to enter Switzerland, the permit allows you to stay for more than 90 days.

Be aware that "permit" has two meaning.
1) The physical card.
2) The actual right to live and work, study, or just spend your money here in Switzerland.

SWK == Someone Who Knows . (I assume).

This A4 sheet is a confirmation that the permit has been granted. Keep it until you don't receive your new card. It actually is a very powerful sheet.

I remember how back in 2014 when I got it I called the Swiss embassy in my home country and they asked me to just drop by anytime without registration. When I came with this A4 sheet and my passport, a dude made a call to CH and spoke some mysterious language, which I now would identify as Swiss German, and within minutes I had a D visa glued into my passport. No questions asked, no additional documents, nothing.

No end date means it is an open permit, so you can change jobs freely. Congratulations, this is quite rare for non-EU to get an open permit straight after studies.
