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

Hello friends,

HR today told me that my work permit B (non-EU) has been approved by canton and been forwarded to Bern for approval. Just wanted to know from your experiences about the success rate of Federal approval.

I know that you don't know the facts, circumstances etc. and also the fact that there have been threads related to this topic before, was wondering if anyone would like to share some recent insights on this.

Thanks in advance.
Wow.. That's something positive we have heard in months now.. Good luck with the rest of the process..

So this is new non-EU B permit, which I heard so far is not an issue.. Would be good if someone can share any success story of non-EU L-B conversion!

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

Hello everyone!

Maybe you guys can help me as well, I haven't had the time to read the whole thread.

Well, basically I live in Switzerland for the past 2 years (non-EU) and for those 2 years I had the L permit. I just recently got my B permit (yay!) and still am wondering if it is a Restricted B or not.

The permit card has the magical words "Mit Erwerbstätigkeit" in the front of it and "Selbst. Erwebstätigkeit is bewilligungsplfichtig" in the back.

What do you guys think? I am still bound to my employer, may I move to another company or not... ?

Any help really appreciated!

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

Still looking for any info on this : Is there a time limit upto which the restricted B permit can be renewed for Non-EU citizens ?
My permit is renewed every year, but is there a problem after 3 years of B ?

Any info appreciated. Thanks.

As far as I understand from the Einwohnerdienste, before 2 months of the expiration of permit (every year) we receive a letter from them which needs to be filled out and sent back. And that's pretty much it.

Don't really think you can renew after 3 years!

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

Not entirely true, I must say. I am non EU. I had an L permit (2009 - 2010) and my wife had a dependent L permit. Yet (after a long struggle), we did manage to get it converted to a "working" dependent L permit. Of course, she needed to prove to the Arbeitsamt that she had a job offer and was qualified enough.

Sadly, soon after we came up for an L to B renewal and here we are now, back in our homeland :-p

FWIW.

Cheers,

b.I.

The Federal or BFM has CAN reject a Kanton approved permit without any reason. You do not even have the right to appeal..

By your lines, it appears that the permit is a EMPLOYER BOUND - for a specific project!!!!

nevertheless, you will have to check the "approval" letter issued by the BfM while granting you this permit, only then you can be sure whether it is bounded for an employer or not!!
Generally when you goto the Canton and ask for such an information, they will blindly take a look at the permit and say you can work anywhere in Switzerland but that isn't true (as heard from one of my friend's case).

I fail to see how you came to that conclusion .

By the Solum's 'lines' it is a normal B permit with the only restriction being the usual one that self employment requires additonal authorisation.

Solum, therefore, has geographic and employment mobility.

I am not pointing out to the words "Selbst. Erwebstätigkeit is bewilligungsplfichtig; but to "Mit Erwerbstätigkeit" in the front of it

Ideally from the out look of Mit Erwerbstätigkeit, it appears to be a normal B permit.
It is generally very difficult for one in the forum to decide (for a non-eu) based on the words mentioned on permit.

BUT, as I mentioned "as heard from one of my friend's experience" (non-eu), he/she too had the similar words mentioned on the permit, but when checked the approval letter there was the hidden fact.

Therefore better option would be to check the initial approval letter issued by "BfM" while granting the permit.

... except that project related B permits have no right to self employment .

Everything depends on the mood of the AUTHORITIES (at that moment) ultimately!!!!

Not at all. There are rules and regulations enshrined in law. Knowing then is the key.

True, there are always rules.
Not all the Canton authorities follow the same rules. Some are flexible to an extent and some are rigid.

That's the reason I said- it again depends on the authorities/kanton of that particular region.
If they say OK, then it should not be a problem.

ok, you're starting to annoy me now.

The guy has a regular B permit as indicated by his right to self employment.

Now stop it.

And the lack of the max. 36 months validity.

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

Hey guys,

Thanks for the replies! Please don't fight lol

After reading carefully the BFM letter I received, I couldn't really find any sort of information that would tell me I have free mobility...

Guess I am going to have to call BFM then, huh?

Anyways, thanks for the input!

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

Hopefully an easy question...

Will the residence permit supercede the Eintrittsvisum? I have a multi-entry visa, but my wife has a single-entry. Will she indeed be able to come and go as she pleases when my B permit arrives, along with her accompanying spouse permit?
