B Permit - Query

Hello -

I am a permit B holder living in Switzerland for 8 years and my permit is expiring in December. I am on chomage since may last year and I found an employer in the US who is willing to engage remotely. My permit doesn't allow me to do independent activity. With a very difficult post covid job market, how do I ensure that I get my permit renewed with this opportunity to do remote work with a company based in US? Any advice?

Thank you!

No, they're not.

Actually you're permit says subject to authorisation. You'd have to get the cantonal offices to agree to you being self-employed.

Also I would worry about what your bank may do if you work for an US company. Although you probably don't fall under FATCA they may decide to chuck you out anyway just to be on the safe side.

As such you are not entitled to become self-employed. My suggestion would be to discuss the situation with your RAV officer and see if there is anything they could do, perhaps working via a payroll company or something.


At least it will gain you some cred with the RAV for trying.
