Quitting job when expecting transition from B to C permit

I have a non-EU 'B' permit and the next renewal (in couple of months) is expected to transition me to 'C'.

Due to some recent developments, I want to discontinue with my present job.

I would like some advise from other members of this forum in terms of impact of resignation on this expected transition from 'B' to 'C'. Is it advisable to stay on for a few months till transition to 'C' is done?

Re: Quitting job when expecting transition from B to C permit

In Canton ZH, you can put forth your application for a renewal / upgrade to C three months prior to the expiry of your current B.

I'd advise you to stick on to the job until then if possible.

yeah, stick with it if possible, unless the recent developments involve your company dumping waste in Zuri see or other illegal activities.

Thanks for quick comments.

I can sure wait for a few months if required. Simply trying to evaluate how it would impact me to quit now.

I understand that the employer needs to notify local authorities of all resignations, whenever they happen. I only want to understand if this notification will impact the receipt of annual renewal form? Would I just not receive that form if I quit now?

Re: Quitting job when expecting transition from B to C permit

When I applied for a C Permit as a non-EU B permit holder a requirement was a letter from my employer stating that my employment contract was permanent and with no end date.

I came across this whilst searching, so may I ask, is the letter requirement something you knew about (was it on the list) or was it something that you found out later (perhaps from your employer)?

I ask because I'm a non-EU who was asked to apply for a C-permit after 5 years (I'm from the US) and there was no mention of this. I'd really like to get the permit, since my boss reduced my contract to a six month contract, and I'm looking for a new job. The immigration office made it sound like it was a done deal. Photo, fingerprints, signature, it will come by post...any chance it will fall through? Oh, and I'm married to a Swiss with two Swiss kids, if that makes any difference.

Then you don't even need a job, you will get the C.

How long have you been married?

More than 5 years, you should be able to directly apply for a Swiss passport.

I can apply for a Swiss passport, since I've been married for three years and living here for five. My husband had called the immigration office to ask about the C permit (since I was afraid I'd be demoted to an L permit). He explained my situation and was told that there was no way I'd get a C permit.... However, we also knew I was eligible for the red passport. Weird. However, when I showed up at the Kreisburo for my B permit renewal (thinking I'd get an L), I was asked if I wanted to get the C and was told that I'd definitely get it.

Bottom line is that if the C permit will allow me to change jobs, I don't really see the reason for getting a Swiss passport, since I'm American and will always have to deal with the lovely little idiosyncrasies of my first citizenship. I just don't want my current boss to ruin my chances!

If you get a Swiss one, you can dump the US one!

Okay, okay, one thing at a time, please. Does anyone know if having a short contract is going to derail my C permit, or is it a done deal? I'll think about committing treason or whatever it is that you did later

You are married to a Swiss, your job has nothing to do with it in this case. You could be unemployed for all they care.

Re: Quitting job when expecting transition from B to C permit

Hi everyone, permit renewal question here. I just renewed my permit for another 5 years - I was tempted to head to Australia for maybe 12 months on a working holiday permit. Would my permit still valid if I came back into the country?

Maybe but I think its 6 months out of the country and the permit is gone unless the rules have changed. Indeed even the 5 year permit doesn't help much when you want to work outside CH.

It can take up to 1 year depending on the amount of work the examining office have....so you need to keep your job as long as you can, any changes can have consequences on your application
