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

Wow, 23 pages! Thanks for all the great info but here is yet another non-EU dependent B permit question that has apparently not been answered: 19 year old daughter starts university in the US. She'll be back and forth over holidays, and worst case, drops out of school and needs to move back home. She has close to two years left before her B permit expires because we renewed them this past August.
  • Do we need to inform the commune that she is out of the country? She is currently planning on coming back here in December after being gone for about 87 days, though in the spring she will likely be out of the country longer than that.
  • Will it be possible for her to keep her B permit?
  • We need to move in the late spring when she is at university and we will probably end up living in a different commune, so will need to re-register our residence. Is this going to cause issues?
Thanks for any clarification!

No.

In a nutshell, offspring being outside the country for purely educational reasons is classed as still resident in Switzerland.

Don't forget to claim the higher tax allowance for a child in full time education outside the country. Also, don't forget you can get child allowance up to the age of 25 while still in full time education. Nice.

Hi Swissbob,

Thanks for help on this issue. Could you please give me a citation in the rules and regulations about residency in this situation? I'm now trying to understand what the requirements are for my daughter to maintain Swiss health insurance while she is studying abroad, and I'm getting apparently conflicting information. I'm being told that her Swiss insurance will not cover her when she is out of the country more than 45 days and that she must get insurance where she is studying, but I'm also being told that to suspend/cancel her Swiss insurance I have to get a letter from the commune saying she is no longer a resident. Needless to say, I'd rather not continue to pay for health insurance that she cannot use.

Merci beaucoup!

Maintaining the health insurance in Switzerland is a requirement of residence. As we are British and have a national health system (smug mode on)we don't need anything extra. I guess for the states you would need at least a repartiation health insurance.

Re: Non-EU Permits - internship

Hey Guys,

wowee 23 pages, I have tired scanning over all the info to find an answer to my question but as a newbie I thought I'd post and see if anyone could help me - as by the sounds of things there are a lot of people in my situation.

I am traveling on a Non Eu passport and moving to Switzerland in 6 weeks
(from New Zealand) to live with my NZ/ Swiss boyfriend. I have been offered an 'internship' with an Advertising Agency in Bern.

I have the contract but I am a little unsure to what kind of permit I should be applying for?? OR if it's even possible to gain working residency based on an internship...

As originally the Swiss Embassy in NZ told me to apply for a B permit but I have now found out that this is not the case,

I have looked into a Trainee permit but this states that I need to be earning a full wage.. (which as an intern I wont be)

So I guess my question is what are my options other than getting married...

If someone could point me in the right direction that would be amazing as I have been told so many different things and I am really lost to what my next move should be....

D

As the first post of the thread points out, you'd have found out it's up to the employer to go to the application process whenever the potential hire is non-EU. You cannot apply for any type permit.

Most likely not.

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

I have a C permit since I'm studying here in UZH, and I am thinking of taking one/two semesters break from school to work and learn German before I go back to the University and change major to the one taught in German.. So is it possible to extend my permit to another year for this reason? my permit is valid till mid Feb next year.. Thank you

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

Hi All,

I've been lurking about the forums for about a week now...scouring the topics for info that I think applies to me and getting myself in a tizzy!

If I could ask you all to lend me a few minutes of your time, I'll explain my situation...

My non-EU fiancé will be relocating to Geneva to start work with an International Organisation in January 2011. He will be entitled to a Carte de Legitimation for the duration of his employment.

I am an EU citizen and I want to join him in Geneva as part of the family reunification, which I believe has to be within 3 months of his moving to Switzerland.

So, my questions are:

1. As we are unmarried, will this bring any problems with my joining him in Geneva as his partner?

2. Will I be entitled to a permit/carte as his partner, i.e. Ci permit?

3. Does the Swiss government's definition of 'spouse' include unmarried partners?

Anyhoo, I really hope that this hasn't been asked already. I promise that I've looked at this thread and a number of others...I've even used the search function!

TIA

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

I may be mistaken -- and I'm certain to be corrected if that's the case --, but I believe that Switzerland, when considering straight couples, doesn't support Family Reunification if one is just a girlfriend or boyfriend. You need to be married and be his spouse in order to take advantage of that and live with him.

That's how I've always understood it.

You're EU, why even bother with a Ci permit? You can get a permit in your own right the moment you get a job.

I'll be resigning from my job in the UK to move to Geneva and I have some concerns about finding work there. I thought that I might have some leeway when it comes to looking for work, if I was considered as his spouse/partner.

Let's just say that I don't want to get there...scramble for a job and then have to go back to the UK when nothing comes up!

Stay as a tourist for 3 months. Then register as a job seeker - 3 months. Then extend the job seeker permit - 3 months. That gives you 9 motnhs to find something .

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

Hello everybody. I want to get some information concerning my residence permit.

I'm non-EU and I've been in Switzerland since April, doing my MS thesis project at EPFL. I have a B permit with the observations "Formation avec activité" in the front and "SEJOUR TEMPORAIRE / DIPLOMANT" in the back.

The case is that this permit expires on December, when I'll finish my Thesis, but I want to look for an internship after that.

How easy is to convert this B permit (I have an scholarship now, so I don't receive any salary in Switzerland) to a work permit (maybe F) with the right to get salary for the Internship?

Thanks.

Jonnahtan.

Of course you can but first you must find a job and an employer to sponsor you.

As mentioned a few times around the forum, in 2011 graduates will eb allowed to stay on in Switzerland for job seeking. If a job is found, the same requirements must be met (no suitable swiss/EU candidate, suitable advertising, etc etc).

Thank so much, swissbob !

My major is in Information Technology industry, and I know there a lot of people pursuing the industry.

how many percent could I have ? if yes, how could I prove that ?

Again, thank for your reply. It is very helpful.

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

Hi all,

I have read almost all 23 pages. Don't see an answer to my issue so here goes -

Friend of ours have been offered a job in CH and they are now considering whether to take it or not, they will come on non EU B permits, their big question is whether or not they can bring her retired parents over here in a year or so to live with them.

Both parents are retired and receive pensions monthly. Is there is family type visa that they qualify for? Her parents are Ukrainian born but have been living in South Africa for over 20 years, so I am not sure if they still have passports for the Ukraine.

Any insight appreciated!

Thanks!
