Basel Language Requirements for C Permit

Hi all,

Before I contact my local migration office, does anyone know if language certification is now a requirement to go from a B to a C permit?

Thanks!

Re: Basel Language Requirements for C Permit

Didn't you answer this question here?

https://www.englishforum.ch/permits-...ml#post3238480

A1 and A2 you said. Depends if you're applying at 5 or 10 years.

"After five years of residence. Foreign nationals applying for a C permit (which grants permanent residence) after they have resided in Switzerland for five years are required to prove that they speak the official language in their canton at level B1 and have written skills at level A1 of CEFR.

After 10 years of residence. Foreign nationals applying for a C permit after 10 years of residence in Switzerland must demonstrate written skills at level A1 and oral skills at level A2 of the CEFR in the official language spoken in their canton."

Re: Basel Language Requirements for C Permit

When I take the exam, do I need to show I have taken german class until B1 level or just simply take the exam?

You have to take the exam, and only language certificates from a select few organisations are recognised.
