Non-EU national

Hi, my employer has just offered me a relocation to Zurich. (Currently I am working for the same company in US headquarters) I am a non-EU and non-US citizen and worrying about my work permit I have BA in economics (in Turkey) and 3 years of fulltime work experience in finance (1.5 years in States in a giant consumer company) what do you estimate about the probability to get a work permit there? my other option is to go to Turkey's office of the same company but I need to make up my mind in a few days and reject/accept one of the two options I want the job in zurich much more but -if they decline my work permit- dont wanna risk other option either
Any help comment appreciated Thanks in advance!

Re: Non-EU national

Hey Atadeniz,

When I came out here last year I was in the same type of situation. I found out the following helps when you are applying:

1)If you are educated
2)A company already wants to employee you


So, I can tell you that at this point your in a pretty good situation.

A little detail that you might want to check with your company: they have to prove that they looked in Switzerland for a person with the same qualifications as you. AKA posted a position in the local newspaper or on monster.com. At least they asked my company for that information. Also, I wouldn't make any immediate plans to come over because it took almost 4 months to get my permit from they started the paper work.

Re: Non-EU national

Hi, thanks for the note, appreciate it

wow 4 months huh ? must be a lot of bureaucracy involved my work permit for States took only 2 days to get !!

I was wondering which type of visa you have? I heard about B and L, which one is better? can non-EU nationals apply to B? Thanks again
