Bureaucracy in the first week

Hi friends,


Two questions from a noob in SZ:


- if I enter (having type D visa in my passport and an address) a week before my first day at work, will that be enough to get the documents I need (permit B or some temp doc saying I will get permit B) from cantonal office necessary for my first day at work?


- is there a difference between changing address in the same canton and changing address between cantons? I assume if my temp stay (let's say at my friend's apt) is in the same canton, it will be much faster to just change the home address once I get a lease.


Thanks

Yes!
A new work permit will be required.

Yes, because the permit is already approved so it's just a matter of you letting them know you've arrived to start off the process of getting it issued. It'll take a little while since you'll need to provide biometric info during the process.

The difference is within the same canton you'd just need to let them know your new address and a new permit would be issued with the new details.

Changing cantons would require you/employer to apply to the new canton for a new permit to be approved by them before you could move.

Cool, so one week before the first day is enough? I assume they won't be able to produce the actual card so soon, so they will probably give me some piece of paper to confirm I have registered at the cantonal office.

Re: Bureaucracy in the first week

I arrived on a Saturday before my first day at work, the following Monday (so, arrival 2 days before starting work). On that Monday, I registered with the authorities and did the HR formalities at my place of work. Welcome!


p.s. I was a non-EU person.

Re: Bureaucracy in the first week

Not enough info above to accurately guide. People need an idea of your nationality, as the rules and their application are not the same for everyone. That's why you'll see sections of laws divided into things like "for EU nationals", "for nationals from x" and so on.

No, since you need to give biometric info as part of the process. You'll be given a piece of paper saying your permit is being processed so you can use that to open bank accounts, etc.

Re: Bureaucracy in the first week

it's good to have a plan and a route. What I usually advise is:
- download local google maps.
- go get registered
- go get a month pass at the railway station walid from today
- go get a sim card
- go to the bank and get an appointment to open an account. In case of UBS it was like 'yeah, we found you a place where you can do it' and then you go there. Opening a bank account does not take 30 minutes like it does in Poland so you wanna do it asap.

- register at post.ch - you may need it to redirect your mail later

- when you have the phone number, arrange a consultation with the health insurance of your choice. I had bad experience with brokers (f...d up 3 out of 3 things they had to do. Massively. They will also try to push you all the possible stuff)
- grab a beer.
