B permit-did not move to CH within the 3 months from receiving the aproval letter

I have an approval letter that I was granted a B permit, and planed to move to CH on march 1st. However I have just realized that the approval expired on the 7th of january 2009. Can an extension be issued after its expiration or would I need to reapply for the B permit. Did anybody experience a similar situation?

Thanks

I'd just email the swiss consulate general in your home country and ask - I am sure they can tell you exactly what you can do...

Although if you do that you'll tip the authorities off - your location says Basel anyway - so do you live here already ?

I live in St Louis, France and work in Basel. I have applied for the B permit to move to Basel, but it took time to give notice for my old apt and find a new one. So, basically one must be stupid not carefully look at the papers. It is done now and I am quite in trouble...

Ah, you have an approval LETTER!

I think it is a case of right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing.

I think you need to take the approval letter to the Basel-Stadt Migrationsamt people (near Schifflande next to the Polizei station) and TRADE IT in for a actual B-Permit. You might need to bring a passport size picture, your rental contract, and your job contract again just in case. The permit will be issued in some weeks with your employer's address and your new Basel address. Perhaps since they didn't know where you would live (i.e. you had not found an apartment when you applied for the permit) they couldn't issue you the actual real permit and gave you this letter instead thinking 1 month was enough for such work...

A quick call or visit should straighten things out. There should be a phone number on the letter... ? Usually the few days difference doesn't matter, but definitely go THIS WEEK!!!!


Hope everything works out for you!!!

Basel Stadt Migration can extend it but you need to apply for an extension. If in doubt contact your consulate.
