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

How can you tell if your B is time-limited or normal? Aren't they both Auslanderausweis Aufenthaltsbewilligung B?

Thanks Shorrick.

My company has applied for B for 3 years - is this "Time limited"?
Yes.

And when you say problem - does this mean possible or impossible?

Cheers!
Possible but rather very difficult as I see it.

The time-limited permits have a "befristet auf" mention, with the usual limitation being three years.

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

New law (Entwurf Ausländergesetz (AuG)) from:
http://www.bfm.admin.ch/etc/medialib...ergleich_d.pdf

Quote:
Gleich wie ANAG, aber Anspruch nach 10 Jahren für alle, wenn keine
Widerrufsgründe (v.a. Verurteilungen und Sozialhilfe).
Bei guter Integration kann Niederlassungsbewilligung generell bereits nach 5 Jahren erteilt werden. Kontrollfrist 5 Jahre. Bei Ausreise Aufrechterhaltung 3 Jahre möglich.
Is this draft still valid?
I remember there was a lot of discussion on C permit and how American nationals (and Ausies) can apply for it after 5 and others after 10 years.

The time-limited permits have a "befristet auf" mention, with the usual limitation being three years.
With usual limitation do you mean it's validity period? or how many times (or up to a specific date) it can be renewd?

Usual limitation means that the work authorisation is delivered for (i.e. you are allowed to work in that position) a maximum of three years after the issuance date. The permit has a yearly validity so you have to renew it two times. Once the limit is reached, either the company applies for a one-off prolongation of another maximum three years, or it doesn't in which case the holder has to leave Switzerland.

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

Back to C permit:
How would they count the years you have been in CH? Only the years you have been working are counted or the whole stay time? Does your work permit have any influence? I have a feeling that they decide individually! I read in Halloschweiz forum the story of a PhD student who convinced them (Bern) to count his whole stay and there were others who didn't make it! His case was rejected in kanton (Basel I think) and he sent a complaint to Bern. He received a positive answer within a month.

IN general the years spent as a student are not counted towards the C permit (the law is pretty specific on that). They count only as far as nationality is concerned. Weird, i know.

Shorrick, I was a bit disheartened seeing this information .. I am interested in the second category ...

But could you have a look at
Working with a non EU dependant B permit

Post #11??

The poster has mentioned no problems whatsoever as in gemeninde haus and Arbesitsamt person did not even ask anything!
Is there a thin silver line in the cloud which says, "maybe"? Which means there is no sureity either way, or even better should I look forward to the balance tilted on my side ?

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

Hi Mora,
Am also in the same boat. My wife applied for her visa with a personal appearance in Mumbai on the Feb 20th and she has got the authorization today. So you can assume that it will take 3 weeks at the least for her to get the visa authorization and another 3-4 days for them to stamp it and return it back. Am based out of Zurich and my wifes visa was processed by the migrations authorities in Zurich. I have heard that Zurich is the fastest when it comes to processing things like this!

Some more information would help me give you an exact answer.

1. Has your wife made a personal appearance?
2. Have you got your marriage certificate legalized? (Am assuming you are an indian citizen and your marriage happened in India)
3. Have you registered yourself with the authorities here?

1) It is not necessary for a personal appearance. My wife got the visa thro post. You can go through a travel agent to send the passport to Swiss consulate in Mumbai
2) The only way to track is to call the consulate in Mumbai and ask the status of your application. Typically, it does take 3-4 weeks for the entire process, assuming you have submitted all documents
3) I am assuming you are referring to Swiss consulate in India - Documents to be sent are mentioned on the website. It includes - attested marriage documents, letter requesting visa, job contract, permit and passport copies, apartment contract copy

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

Hi Kalyan,
I have submitted marriage documents, letter requesting visa, job contract, permit and passport copies, apartment contract copy in the "Gemeinde" (city office where i registered my new rented appartment) here in Switzerland. The City office (Gemeinde) said that after 4-6 weeks i will recieve an authorisation letter for visa for my wife and they will send it to me by post to my address in Switzerland and at the same time to Switzerland consulate in Mumbai. And then my wife can go to Swiss Embassy in India and submit application form and can collect visa.

Now please clarify me, as u mentioned earlier, it takes 3 weeks after submitting all the mentione above documents in Swiss Consulate in India as u r wife did. Is the same process to all who are working here on B permit?
1. When should my wife visit consulate in India? i mean after getting authorisation from Migrationsamt ?
2.and marriage certificate must be attested with home ministry while applying for visa or by any authorised lawer will work?
Hope i am not confusing u and sorry to bother.
Regards
I am from Andhra Pradesh.

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

Hi Mora,
This is the link to the mumbai consulate is http://www.eda.admin.ch/mumbai and i have uploaded the check list for a dependent visa.

We started the application process from India, that is the difference i see between you and me. If you see the check list it categorically says that a personal appearance is mandatory. I guess Kapeed would have proceed his wifes dependent permit last year. I was told that a lot of rules were changed with effect from 01.01.2008.

One thing for certain is you would have to get your marriage certificate legalized by the home ministry. That is mandatory. So you can start that process already because that is going to take some time. You may get that done faster if you know someone in the government

I would also suggest that you call the Mumbai consulate and talk to them regarding your case. Call in the morning from 8:15 to 11 or in the afternoon from 1 - 3. They are quite helpful!

All the best!

Yes, she can certainly look for a job. If offered a job the employer must then make the case for the work permit. This is difficult, especially since the latest changes in the legislation. For example, the employer would have to show that there was no Swiss or EU person available to take the job.

Put simply, it is going to be very difficult for your wife to find a job.
Hi Swissbob,

I am a little confused upon reading your response to Kalyan.

My understanding is that if your spouse has a residency permit B with authorisation to work and you have a residency permit B without authorisation to work; that in transforming your permit to a residency permit B with authorisation to work, there is no need for the employer to demonstrate they have been unable to find someone in the local market for the position.

You refer to new legislation - can you please tell me exactly what this legislation says in this regard?

I am a non-EU Australian coming to Zurich with a spousal dependent permit B and will be hoping to work. After reading your email saying it would be very difficult for Kalyan's wife to get a job I am feeling rather deflated!!

Thanks for your help in advance!

Melissa

If your permit is attached to a project related position rather than an open ended employment contract then you may be treated differently as in the case you mention. Otherwise, what you say is correct.

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

Thanks for your quick response Swissbob!

So by the sounds of it if my husband is granted a project-related position then I would not be entitled to work, however if he is granted an open-ended employment contract I would.

Next step is to find out from the University of Zurich (where he will be doing his post-doc) which one they are applying for on his behalf!

Thanks again,

Cheers

Sorry to be dissappoint you but if you spouse has a student B permit then you dont come under the new rule. If your spouse here for studies normally a Student B permit is granted. May be i am wrong in assuming that your spouse is here for studies

Would a Ci permit (international organizations) count toward the normal C permit or nationality?
