Husband quitting job and going to USA/Can I stay in CH longer than him?

Hello, I am seeking advice on a B-permit Visa question when a person quits a job. We live in BaselLand. We are non-EU citizens. My husband received a job offer back in our home country of the US that we plan to accept. Our B-permit is tied to his employment, however I also work part-time as part of my family reunification visa. Our B-permit is currently set to expire in March 2022.

My question is, upon his resignation from his employer and his last day on the job, how long do we have before we need to exit Switzerland? He will go to the US and start his job, but I would like to stay to finish a teacher training program I am currently taking. Is it possible that I stay an additional 90 days on a tourist visa or something else after he departs for his new job, or do I need to leave when he leaves? I have read conflicting information online, with some people saying we could stay for up to six additional months, while others say you need to leave right away. Nothing in the forum I have read lines up with my question either. Any guidance is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

I think you should talk to your cantonal migration office. As a US citizen you don't need a tourist visa for stays of less than 90 days and when the permit becomes invalid that's effectively what you'll both become. However, whether you could stay as a tourist and still do your course I don't know. And you certainly won't be able to continue to work part-time since you will no longer have a permit that allows it.

Thanks so much for your feedback. Yes, I figured I wouldn't be able to work part time after his departure, but am hoping to just be able to finish out my nine-weeks of student teaching (which is unpaid) for September/October/early November even if my husband begins his job in August. If he left at the end of August, and the 90 day tourist stay could begin then, that could take me through the end of November to finish things up. Fingers crossed, will check with the canton migration office when they reopen on Tuesday, but was just itching for some insight before then. Thanks so much!!
