USA Citizen on B Permit - can I live in France
 
We are currently living in Geneva, American family on B-Permit. We are considering a move over the border to France, but have heard mixed messages on whether or not this is possible. May I ask for assistance or to be pointed to a thread on this topic if the discussion has already occured in the forum. My keyword searches have not resulted in any threads .

oddly enough, once I submitted this post a nice list of suggested threads was presented, and I found my answer in one of those. So, please disregard my post.

You can read different threads, but it is best to call the consulat in Geneva to get the correct legal answer:

I am in the same position. We have located several places in France that we would like to live and commute to Geneva for work (currently on non-EU B-permit), but the "problem" seems to be with the Swiss authorities, not the French. Can someone please send me the aforementioned links, info?

It's been my understanding that when you live in Switzerland with a B-Permit, that you have to live in the canton where your job/sponsor is. But as always, this may vary by canton. Best bet would be to go to the Fremdenpolizei (don't know the French name for "foreigner police"?), ie: where your B-Permit was issued, and ask them.
