Work permit for non EU Nannies

Does anyone know if it is possible to hire a Nanny from the Philipines or from South America legally in Basel? Is it very difficult to get the work permit for them? What do you have to do to apply for it? How long does the process normally takes? What are their chances of getting the work permit? Are there any agencies/lawyers that can do the paperwork for you?

Thanks for your help.

Re: Work permit for non EU Nannies

Does anyone know if it is possible to hire a Nanny from the Philipines or from South America legally in Basel?
yes
Is it very difficult to get the work permit for them?
only because they cannot apply from within Switzerland
What do you have to do to apply for it?
Sign a contract with them, and then the Canton. They have to go to their country of residence and apply there (ridiculous, I know). The fee is relatively cheap (about 100chf)
How long does the process normally takes?
3 weeks
What are their chances of getting the work permit?
good, depending on the employers contract
(ie-can you support this person?)
Are there any agencies/lawyers that can do the paperwork for you?
yes but its an unneccessary cost. If you call your local office and ask about it they usually refer you to a nanny agency, to prove that there is not someone else from Swiss who could do the job (there isn't-there is a massive shortage in childcare) and they confirm this for you, without cost. The only real hardship is the nanny going back to her country of residence for a month! (South America is far!)
