Re: Appeal for unlimited work permit is rejected

Okay, so if I interpret it correctly, you are saying if the Workpermit has code 1402 then it is an unlimited B for non EU? Where do I get to see the code?
You said
"It is my fault that I posted such a technical question. I had first work permit with code 1406, and then I got 1402. I thought this type of work permit might have a special meaning. But later, I found New Table Of Work Permits.pdf (Very useful information. ): 1402 is a workpermit for duration of 365 days until unlimited for the people from Non-EU. With this workpermit, the person will get B permit. In other words, all the new work permits will be issued based on this table and work permit with code 1402 does not have a special meaning. By the way, this was Old Table Of Work Permits.pdf "

code 1402 means that you could get work permit for one year (my case), two years, x years, or unlimited period. In either case, I should go the Gemeinde and renew my Aufenhaltsbewilligung B every year (after 5 years, every two years). This code is written in the paper called "Stellenantritt" that your employer will receive from MigrationAmt.

Re: Appeal for unlimited work permit is rejected

Hi Alirezakarimi,
My employer got my B-permit renewed and I think mine is "unlimited". I am attaching a screen-shot of the approval document my employer received with code 1402. I don't have an end date in this approval.

Regards

You are from a non Eu country so you are entitled to annual renewal of permit.It doesn't matter if you got "forever" work contract.
I just received my B-permit and even though I have an unlimited contract with my company now, the work permit is still valid for only one year. I will have to renew it again next year. Donavir is right. I am also from a non-EU country.

Yes, that is right. But you may change your job without any permission, you may stay in Switzerland without job for almost 18 months (200 working day); whereas, I can not change my job, If I loose my job, I would have to leave the country.

Re: Appeal for unlimited work permit is rejected

I have an "unlimited" work permit since June last year.
Well it basicaly says something like "all previous limitations have been removed" on it.

But it is not clear to me, what exactly is an unlimited work permit? Does it allow you to change jobs freely? Or allow you to work in any canton you want without going thru the whole work permit process again?.. something like an unlimited permit to stay as long as you've got some sort of job in CH?

What exactly is the limit that they remove when you get it?

and why is this whole migration workpermit stuff is so complicated and worse, no where on government websites explained clearly for the foreigners! I anway find it quite weird that all migration, workpermit related stuff are rarely in English. Not even most of the clerks at Migrationsamt speak decent english.

Re: Appeal for unlimited work permit is rejected

swissbob.am I joking??
or are you really kidding me?

This whole topic is for Foreigners alone and German or Italian or French; none of them is as widely spoken as English. Therefore offices like Migrationsamt and their documents, forms should also be available in English.

During my first year in Switzerland, everytime I had to talk to a clerk at Migrationsamt, they could not (or maybe they just did not want to) speak English with me. I couldnt fill up any form because I dont speak either one of the three official Swiss languages. Migrationsamt is not some small Gemainde office of a tiny village in the mountains or something.. its the first room place every foreigner stops by when they arrive to Switzerland and they should be able to serve in English. Punto!

I'm a bit confused about this. The OP has a limited B permit, but cannot change jobs? I'm a non-EU citizen here on a B permit that I have to renew every year. I'm quite certain that I can find another job (I know others that have done so). I'm also quite certain I would not be simply kicked out of the country were I to be made redundant.

My main reason for asking is that I'm considering a move to a contract position from my permanent position. What would happen if my contract were to end (as they all do eventually) and I find myself not working for a month or two during the time that my yearly B permit renewal comes due? Currently, I receive my papers, take them to HR for a rubber stamp, and send them off. If there is no current HR to stamp the papers, what would happen?

I guess this is truly a question for the Migrationsamt, but any advice here would be helpful. I don't trust my local Gemeinde to have all the answers in these cases.

Thanks.

I like it how you tell the Swiss how they should run their country, and I suppose they are thrilled, too.

Hi, Alirezakarimi,
Hope you are doing well.
This was long time ago, but still think this is useful information and worthwhile to reach out to you. So I just got unlimited work permit from AWA, and they told me I am free, but do you know what this really means? My B-permit still needs to be renewed every year (now I am in the second year of B).
Staying in CH without job for 18 months? but the migration office will not give me permit when I ask for renew without a job. Right? so looking forward to hearing from you.


Thanks. Have a nice afternoon/weekend.
Best Regards
Mike
