How long can you stay after your L permit has expired?

So my contract for work is ending next month, and i was wondering if i have to leave right away or not? once that your working permit has expired, are u allowed to stay at least 1 more week or do u have to leave the next day?

Re: How long can you stay after your L permit has expired?

just, you know, whenever you want really. The Swiss aren't known for their precision in these matters. The permit doesn't have a real duration anyway, just a suggestion on how long you might like to stay.

haha yes, i got my speeding ticket last year, and wow! i got pretty lucky, i was off by 3km getting my license taken away. but either way, i paid more than 1,000CHF for it. I don't understand how swiss gov. can just charge your 400CHF just to write u a warning letter.

I'm for sure comming back to switzerland, I'm actually planning to get married, but requirements are pretty difficult to obtain.

I just wanted to stay for 4 more days after my contract ends, im just not sure if they'll penalize for staying.lol.

so i can stay for a couple more days after the visa expires? just not for a long period of time?

Criminal? haha. i guess, if u consider it a criminal just to have a speeding ticket. Everyone gets it, that's life.

The ticket was last year, paid it already just to get it over with. I would have filed a court date and fight the ticket due to the fact that the camera speed radar was incorrect with the speed limit of the street, but this aint america. lol.

yah, just wanted to stay 4 days, so i can pack and have my time. it's pretty stupid if you just finished your working contract the next day you have to leave. they should give you a day or so and then leave.

Re: How long can you stay after your L permit has expired?

Geeeze. OK, first, I'm really sure if your contract ends then the validity of your permit ends as well. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure no one would check on you in 4 days. I wouldn't stay long if I were you but it's not as if the police were after you as soon as you step out of work. Anyway, you can always stay as a tourist, can't you?

I've just heard some rough stories about completely honest people trying to spend some time here and the police checking on them. They all had happy endings though. So I wouldn't worry...

Well if you have an EU passport I suppose you could stay here for up to 3 months more after your L permit expires.

You might have *some* luck if you're EU. If your L has expired, what permit do you have?

I am EU. And will have worked here circa 14 months to date...my contract goes on until 31-07-2010. But my boss has told me depending on work that i might be let go before that date. and also depending on work I might be extended.

Either way I would like to know my entitlements.
