B permits

Couple quick questions:

1. As a non-EU, can I start a new job as soon as the B permit has been applied for or do I need to wait till it has been granted?
2. As a non-EU former B permit holder...I know that the B permit is automatically renewed but - what happens if you leave the country and it expires...do you need to re-apply for a new one or can the old one be renewed? If the old one can be renewed - how long after it expired can you still renew it?

Re: B permits

Hi Marc,
It works like this.
1. Your employer applies on your behalf for a Work permit.
2. You will be able to pick this Visa up at a Swiss Consulate
outside of Switzerland
3. You are now legal to enter the country and work.
4. When you arrive, you have to go to the Community( Gemeinde in
German ) and apply for the permit. All the while, you can continue
5. The work permit usually arrives in 4-6 weeks.

Your former work permit has little bearing on the new one. It has
to be newly issued.
