Where to get(download) application form for permit C

Sorry, if this sounds stupid, but I can not find in google application form to fill out for Permit C, while I read here things like "I am working on my permit C application".

Please advise where do I get it from? Need it for C anticipe. Thanks!

It does not exist as such in canton Vaud, you need to explicitly write a letter requesting one based on such and such article and date and sign it.

Thanks! This forum is really helpful!
So it is a sort of motivation letter, where I ask to change the permit to C and explain why, right? What valid reasons would you (or anyone) recommend, please? (Apart from future naturalisation, buying property, freedom to look for jobs across Switzerland, set up a company).

I will attach copy of work contract, salary for 3 last months, copy (or original?) of language certificate.
Then I should go to police office and request Extrait de l'office des poursuits (this will cover both debts and clear criminal record, right?), attach this one.
Then I attach a recommendation letter from the neighbours.
Anything else?

And send everything to Service de la population and wait?

Re: Where to get(download) application form for permit C

A bit over the top for a C permit but the bare minimum you need to include is the list of documents in the checklist I shared with you in a previous post (which also contains the relevant articles).

As advised in said previous post, the process in canton Vaud is sending everything via your town hall.

I don't know about Vaud, but in Valais, the form is the same for all permit types (L,B,C etc), there is a tick box section for which permit (normally left blank as canton decides) and you could put a written request with it for a C I guess.

Thank you! Could you please help me understand if the articles you are referring to are for EU or non-EU? As per my understanding- for all foreigners.

There is no difference between EU and non-EU. Permit C is not part of the FMOP agreement between the EU and Switzerland. There are some countries, most of them EU members, which get some facilitation regarding permit C.

People from the following country can get permit C after 5 years and need no language certificate:
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Liechtenstein, Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain.
Also applies to the spouses of citizen of the following countries: Austria, Denmark, and Germany.

People from the following countries can get permit C after 5 years but need to meet the language and integration requirements for C after 10 years:
Andorra, Canada, Finland, Great Britain (*), Iceland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Sweden, United States of America, and Vatican City.
(*) Includes Hong Kong citizen wich are British Citizen, but not Britisch Nationals (Oversea) or British Dependent Territories Citizens.

The above two situation would be Art. 34 Par. 2 FNMIA and an agreement with country of origin

All other can get permit C after 5 years on permit B if they meet the requirements of good integration.
That would be Art. 34 Par. 4 FNIA. Be aware that if only one of the spouses applies for permit C, the other spouses still must fulfil some minimal integration requirements.

If non of the above applies it would be permit C after 10 year of stays which is simply Art. 34 Par. 2 FNIA.

Re: Where to get(download) application form for permit C

Do you actually have to volunteer?

Our gemeinde sent us a letter a couple of months before the five years telling us that we had the option to convert to C. They included the one page form (the same one for all permits just with different boxes to tick), and a list of things required (which for SG was just an unlimited work contract, no language requirement), then I had a ten minute chat in their office to prove basic integration and it was done for all four of us.

Thank you for explicit answer! Could you please elaborate on the requirements for the spouse which is not currently applying, as this is our case. If you have any links to laws that would help a lot.

Re: Where to get(download) application form for permit C

In Kanton Zurich (or in my Gemeinde at least), you can't apply for or renew permits remotely or online. If you're not sent a form proactively, you have to go into the Gemeinde office and ask for one. You also have to submit the completed form in person at the same office along with the requested documents -- passport, tenancy agreement, marriage certificate (if appropriate), etc.

AFAIK, it's only when you get into citizenship territory that you have to make a more detailed case for being granted the upgrade, and will be expected to submit references, proof of integration, and a much wider range of supporting documents. B and C permits are relatively straightforward, and a much quicker process.

The relevant ordinance has no explicit requirement. It is up to the cantons to define it. In canton Zurich the spouse would need level A2. Could be that there is no such requirement in canton Vaud.
