There is no time requirement between permits. If you can find a job and your employer successfully applies for a work permit in the time available then you would not have to leave the country but as time is short you may have to look at the option of staying on as a tourist for a couple of months while the paperwork is done. If it takes longer then you may have to leave the country for a while.
----------------------

The option of staying on as a tourist right after the permit ends may not or may be possible without leaving the country. The authorities would know.

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

One of my friends is planning to go to switzerland, but unfortunately only has one of those useless Australian passports... he would plan to live there for maybe 6 months (at least more than 3).
How would he best go about getting a european passport? Or would he be better getting some sort of other visa or something instead?

Your friend can come as a tourist for a maximum of 3 months. For a european passport contact the relevant EU country immigration office.

Non-EU Permits - a few bullet points.

Hi to all.As a non-EU, I signed an unlimited contract with an international company based in Basel at the end of June.My contract starts at the 1st of October.And my notice period for leaving my actual job is a month.So;I have to give my resignation before September.Actually as there is no guarantee for granting residence permit, I do not want to resign before receiving the approval letter.Because of that,time is not easily passing for me.

My future employer says in general it takes 15 days, maximum a month.Some people says it takes between three and four months.In the forum some says it takes between two and three months.Answers are unbelievably different. I am totally confused and stressed.Is not there any standard timeframe for evaluation of the residence permit application in Switzerland?

No. All the information here is anecdotal but it is worth noting that most of the posters are talking about the time it gets to receive the actual, physical, permit. The process to get this is normally only initiated once you register in Switzerland.

The letter authorising you to work in Switzerland and which you will need to register, is a seperate issue. If your prospective employer normally gets this in 15 days then I would work on that basis. Some employers take much longer but not all have such efficient HR departments. Where a company has a good relation with the immigration department it can be even quicker.

Nicely said Swissbob.

Nevertheless it makes me wonder, for a 6month visit, why would someone even think of getting a passport! But he knows better, ofcourse.

By the way, are 'they' ....ermmm... EU passports so readily available? On the lighter side, how bout an ox and three stacks of hays in exchange for one?

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

Apologies for being offtopic ... may be little anecdotes are welcome when your eyes start watering read through the 165 posts to see whether anyone was unfortunate enough like you, with a Non-Eu B permit, and nevertheless shooting a question, which possibly Shorrick or someone who understands the law well, would so humbly answer too! Hats off to masters!

sorry .. no chance there, since it is an ox so technically he is not looking forward to any offspring (daughters or otherwise) .... though he said he might want to call in another 'buddy of his' in the deal if it gets the EU passport (for him ofcourse, I am wiser)

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

I have recently received a B permit just mentioning "Aufenthaltbewilligung"

Is this a long term or a short term B permit?

I am from non-EU and this is a permit with 1 year validity.

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

Maybe this is answered elsewhere but I have not been able to find any similar question.

I am Australian living in Australia. My wife and kids are EU citizens. She does not work for at least another few years. We all plan to move to Zurich if I can get work here. I won't come unless I can get a job.

Does the fact that I am married to her improve my chances of getting a work permit. My guess is no from the forums, but just want to check.

What kind of permit would we get?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

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

Dear all,

Wonderful efforts have been put in explaining the bits and pieces of Non-EU permits. However, I could n't find an answer for my unique case and is :

Being an Indian national, I possess a Dutch work permit valid for 3 years linked to my current employer in Netherlands. I am most likely to get my WP processed by an Employer in Switzerland. The questions are,
  • Is there a provision in Swiss WP laws, which gives me the privileges as that of EU, since I already have a work permit in Netherlands ?
  • Should I get my entry VISAs,dependant VISAs issued by Swiss embassy in Netherlands or should I get it processed from India (I do have my Wife and 2 months old son as my dependants here.)
Experiences of similar cases if shared would be highly appreciated

Regards,
Krish

Visa application takes place at your place of residence.

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

Dear Shorrick Mk2,

Thank you for your insightful and organized post. However, I would appreciate if you could add few more categories to it. 1) Student Visa: BSc or MSc; 2) Student Visa: unpaid PhD (without assistantship position); 3) Student Visa: Paid PhD (with assistantship position at the university); 4) Partner/Dependent Visa issues for each; 5) Children visa
I am a non-EU doing a Masters programme in the UK. I got a PhD offer with assistantship from a university in Switzerland. I applied for visa and picked it up recently (I am still in the UK). My main question is: what should I do to bring my non-EU wife to Switzerland. However, I thought it might be good to rise similar questions as well which I see in different places in the forum. If you could kindly add these to your organized first post, I guess many problems will be solved for me and others.
Thank again.
Best.

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

I am a postdoc interested in working long-term in Switzerland. I am in the non-eu category (indian). I would like to look for opportunities outside the university. If there is an employer interested in hiring me, should I first quit my current position? or can the new employer simultaneously make an application for a work permit? If authorized to work, should I have to leave Switzerland and apply for a visa?

Also, can anyone tell me how I can find out if I have a short term B permit? I live in the french part and all text on the permit is in French.

Thanks!

Dear Shorrick,


Thanks for your reply, article 46 I presume?

"Art. 46 gainful employment of the spouses and children Spouse and children of Swiss and Swiss as well as of persons also an address or a residence grant (art. 42-44) can exercise an independent or dependent gainful employment in whole Switzerland." (babelfish translation)

I have a B permit (non EU), which my employer applied for, my wife will have a dependant B permit, this will allow her to apply for a job, but she wont need to get a work permit as I did, yes?

Thanks!

No. The employer still needs to make an application for the work permit but it is virtually guaranteed to be granted.
