Wow, 7 days is unbelievable! I'm really hopeful to hear back around 8 weeks because I'm no longer in the mood to do my current job if I'm honest.

By the way, may I know in which canton do you work?
That's exactly how I'm feeling at the moment. My new company offered me the job at the end of March. Expected to start on 1st September. It's going to be a long summer. I've already given up my current job mentally!

If the Geneva bureaucrats are reading this, please get a move on! It's eight weeks today!

Well, perhaps you don't have the temperament to live and work here.

Sorry to hear that you still haven't hear back from them. It's now been 6 weeks for me, still no news from Zürich. It's looking less and less likely for me to start early August. I just wish that there's a proper, hard deadline; it's mentally exhausting not knowing when will you actually get a decision.

Re: Work permit processing time for non-EU

Finally, I have just been informed by my employer today that my work permit has been approved by the SEM and AWA

So, it took six weeks in total.

Anyway, thank you everyone for your replies.
