And more permit questions...

I have asked a few work permit questions before on behalf of the OH, but this one is for me. I have called the Canton and also asked my employer but I get the impression I am going to have to sort this out myself.

My questions are

1. Do you apply for a B permit in the canton in which you live (Vaud) or the canton in which you work (Geneva)? I went in to see someone at the Vaud canton and they said to fill in this form and send it in

permis_sejours/fichiers_pdf/PE_CE_AELE_plus_3_mois.pdf
but someone else said I would have to request a permit from Geneva, as that is where I will be working....
2. Is all you have to do for a permit (L or B) is fill in the form, send contract and copy of passport, get employer to sign and that is it?? I have asked the OH on how he did it, but he has the memory of a goldfish, although for 1. his company has offices in both VD and GE, so they just gave him a VD contract..

Thanks!

The permit you apply for is a residence permit. If your other half has one, then if you are married you should have one as well. The residence permit then will have a work permit attached to it which might need activating (ie an application to work). As you are an EU citizen your permit from VD will entitle you to work in the whole of Switzerland anyway so you have no need to worry about GE...
