Non-EU Switching Jobs between Cantons

Hello Everyone!

I have a question regarding switching jobs. What is the process for switching jobs between two cantons?

I currently work in Schwyz but I live in Zurich; however, I received a job offer for a company in Zurich. I've received confirmation from Zurich canton that I am allowed to switch jobs in general (no restrictions on my visa, etc.), but I'm wondering if the new company has to do anything else (such as fill out a canton switch form?).

I live in Zurich so my visa was issued by Zurich - but of course the initial process went through canton Schwyz, but I'm not sure if this makes a difference.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Non-EU Switching Jobs between Cantons

Don't think so since it sounds as if you have an open B permit.

It's a PERMIT, not a VISA!

The real question is how you managed that. The rule is you're supposed to live in the same canton as your workplace is based so how did you persuade Zurich to grant you a permit?

Then I can't see why Canton Schwyz was even involved.

I see people on this forum write this, but it has not been my experience at all. I have seen every combination of people living, working, moving between cantons in suisse romande and it has never been an issue.

With an open B it's not; with a tied B it's a different story.
