Non-EU Student B Permit - When can I start a part job

Hello everyone,

I have recently gotten an interview for a part time job position for a company in Zurich. But I was told that as a Non-EU student, I can not work part time for the first 6-month period in Switzerland.

I just want to know how do they count the 6-month time period. I received a confirmation that St.Gallen issued a resident permit for me in Feb. But I will enter Switzerland in Apr/May. So when they count the time, do they start from the issue time in Feb or personal register time in Apr/May?

If Non-EU student here know anything about this, please give a reply. Thank you!

Hi, they count six months from the date you got your B permit - I am also a student from a non-eu country and had to wait 6 months before I could start working. Good luck

Thank you for your reply. Does that mean Feb when they have issued a resident permit? But I have not been to Switzerland. If I go to the migration office in St.Gallen, will they give me some kind of paper stating that my permit start from Feb?

Thanks!

I think you have to be residing in the country for at least 6 months and maybe your six months would count only after you actually arrive here (I could be wrong here - sorry). I am sure the migrations office can give you much better information on this. Try ringing them up or e-mailing them they should be able to help, I remember going for an interview with a nanny agency and they rang the migrations office up for me and was told when exactly I would be able to start work (but my situation was different to yours - I had already been living in the country)

Good luck

Re: Non-EU Student B Permit - When can I start a part job

I have contact the migration office in St.Gallen, they gave me a reply as follow:

"In regards to the 6 months. To our knowledge there is not such a rule. You can put in your application as soon as you have a signed work contract."

I get confused now. Why they told me I don't need to wait for 6 months? I could just apply for a work permit when I have a work contract. But others told me that I need to wait for 6 months until I am eligible for working.

Maybe the Canton of Zurich has different rules with Canton of St.Gallen? And if I want to work part time in Canton of Zurich, which migration office should I submit my application for work permit. (Actually it's the Amt für Wirtscha)

Anyone know about this?
