Hi Amit,

If you look through the thread, it has already been answered, but here it is again :

You cannot directly work on L permit dependant. If a company hires you and is willing to process your work permit then only you can work.
I assume for your kind of work, some German fluency may be required, check the job sites to see the demand for your work field.

On a personal note, I would recommend you search for a job here first then leave the job in India, its quite difficult to find one here for non-EUs, also consider the visa situation, currently no new work permits are being issued as the quota is over for the year.

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

[QUOTE=Amit_Purohit;739598]Hi,

A. we are from India & My wife is working Here in Basel on L permit for a 12 month period.(It can be extend)

It can be extend is not the same as it will be extend, the authority may not have the same views as the company.
At this moment in time the situation is dicey, I admit I accnot say how it will be in November.

E. I want to join her because we recently get married and we dont want to stay away from each other for such a long period ...

I wish you find a solution, but in no case give up your job without a work contract in your hands

Now I am planning to leave my JOb and join my wife in basel ...


2. Can I work in other place then basel in switzerland as most of banking jobs in Zurich . ( i will stay continue in basel )

Commuting from Basle to Zurich is a stressful experienced in the winter with minus temperatures and the nasty icy winds, it can be done

Regards

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

Hi everyone! I apologize if this information is in this post, its full of some great information, but I havent found what Im looking for.

I am currently an L permit holder (Au Pair, non-EU from Canada), until Mid-August of this year, I lvoe it here and unexpededly met someone early on that makes me want to stay here. My boyfriend and I have begun to search for work for me for after my contract is finished as an Au Pair (unfortunatley, for non-EU my Au Pair visa cannot be renewed, even though my host family would gladly keep me on).

My question is, is it possible for me to get an extension on my L visa, another L visa if I find temporary work, or a B visa without me having to leave the country and re-enter. Is anyone certain about this, or should I visit my locak Geminde?

Thanks, any assistance is much appreciated.

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

RESIDENTS' B PERMIT (Aufenthaltbewilligung im Rahmen des Familiennachzugs)

LONG-TERM RESIDENCE PERMIT. NOT SUBJECT TO QUOTA
  • Permit delivered for family dependents.
  • Does not include work permission - this must be applied for separately (no quotas; indigenous priority does not apply anymore since 1.1.08)

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

Thanks for the information on various permits Shorrick!

I have a query regarding the L permit;

- I hold an L permit currently and work in the Geneva canton, can I switch my job outside the Geneva canton?

- Would it be possible for my propective employer to have my L permit transferred?

- Or, would my propective employer need to file for a new permit for me in order to make the job offer? (if this is the case, then i can say bye bye to the offer, coz the employer would surely not be willing to go through the grind!! sigh.. )

I greatly appreciate any information that you can share with me regarding the issue I have stated...!

Thank You!

Chandan

It is not possible to switch jobs on an L permit.
The new employer would have to file for a new permit.

And looking at the quota discussions in the forum. I also think it is not the right time. Just hold on for a few more months in your current job if you can. May be it might change

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

What application do I fill out to get an L permit? I am non-EU and I do not want to work and I want to stay less then 12 months. On the website of the swiss embassy it gives me a choice in applying for a visa, I can fill out the Visa D application or the Visa schengen application. There is no document on the website that tells me which one I shoudl fill out to obtain the L permit. I have searched and searched, the directions are just not there.

For the very good reason that a non-EU L permit is always delivered in conjunction with a work or otherwise gainful posting in Switzerland.

Re: Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

I just want to know the current situation prevailing in terms of converting L to B permits and also aquiring a new L permit for a non-EU citizen.
Everyone must be aware the Federal authority of migration in Switzerland has reduced the quotas by half this year, and non-EU workers are facing absolute trouble getting their WP renewed.

Does anyone knows of any current happenings on this or say whether Swiss immigration authorities are considering to increase the quota anytime soon.

This situation happened due to the rising unemployment in Switzerland, the situation will be reviewd in June and afaik, the unemployment situation is improving, but this is a mystery until June.

Does the review anyways suggests that there could be an additional release of quotas.?
Last heard in Dec 2009, the jobless rate in Swiss was close to 4%.
As of now also, are there cases sparingly were the renewal from L to B are getting accepted?
