B permit and time abroad

Hi,


I know the topic of 180 days has been covered quite extensively but I have a slightly complicated situation that I would like some help with. I've just recieved my B permit but have already left Switzerland overland to Germany and will now fly to the UK due to medical reasons. From the UK and once approved by the Swiss authorities, I will fly from the UK abroad for 6 months to conduct research. This will however mean as I'm flying from the UK that the total time will be longer than 6 months (4 weeks medical UK + 6 months field campaign). Since I have no exit stamp from Switzerland will the initial departure even be recognised or will they use the German stamp as a reference? If yes will they accept the first 4 weeks were medical and do not count towards the 180 days being allowed continously to be spent abroad?


Many thanks!

Why not just head back for a weekend in the middle of the 6 months? Feels like playing with fire unnecessarily.

Re: B permit and time abroad

I'll be in a remote part of Africa so popping back for a weekend isn't quite so simple

As I understand it, you can talk to the Gemeinde people and explain your situation. They might give you an extension on the 6 months, due to your special circumstances.

Perhaps it would make more sense to first fly from the UK back to Zurich once my medical stuff is finished and then fly from Zurich straight to Uganda to avoid any confusion?

So maybe just one last question:


As I said I have no exit stamp from Switzerland as I travelled first overland to Berlin and flew from there to the UK. If I travel now abroad for another 3 months and then return to Switzerland will anyone at customs care that I don't have an exit stamp from Switzerland? It will be well within the 6 month continious period allowed abroad, I just won't have their stamp in my passport. Thanks again

Sorry and one last question. Are they more concerned that its not 6 months in one go or do they also closely look that its not more than 6 months in the last 12 months as well (i.e would multiple shorter trips be less noticebale)?

Re: B permit and time abroad

Sounds like a posted worker from Switzerland to country outside EU, read this. It seems your employer needs to do some paperwork and you forget about stamps on the passport.

Tangential topic: you still need to pay for health insurance in CH during your time abroad.
