Renewing B-Permit in Zurich

Hi all

Am coming up on 1 year in Switzerland. After spending 3 months changing from Kanton Aarau to Zurich, it is now about time to renew my permit (expires in September) for the first time.

What is the process for renewing the permit? When living in France (I am US citizen) it was quite easy but had to initiate it myself 3 months early.

How does it work here? Who do I contact to initiate it? I understand with a B permit it is easy, but I guess still some paperwork to fill...

Thanks

Fill up the form at your Einwonherkontrolle / Gemeinde 3 months prior to expiry date and pay the fee.

Re: Renewing B-Permit in Zurich

We've always been sent a form to fill in and a letter telling us what to bring with the form (passport, money, old permit etc) to our local Kreisburo (Gemeinde office) and by what date.

Re: Renewing B-Permit in Zurich

Same here...they send the paperwork out about 3 months ahead of the renewal date and you go to your local Gemeinde with the correct documents, fill forms, possibly get a new passport photo and pay a fee..

Re: Renewing B-Permit in Zurich

I thought id post this question here as its probably the most relevant here:

My wife is still in process of getting her work permit approved (we are on an L permit atm and she got a job and they are applying for her to work), but my permit is due for renewal in September and I want to reapply ASAP to be able to get a B permit. This helps my wife because it means she can work even if her work permit application isn't approved. My questions are:

1. My work want to wait until the normal renewal time - partly through laziness or stubbornness (ive asked many a time), but can I do it myself assuming I have my contract that is valid for the future? ie. more than a year

and 2. Do I risk anything my submitting it myself? or is it better to just wait for work to get their a into g?

Your employer must apply for the renewal.

Re: Renewing B-Permit in Zurich

How do the logistics work?

Do they hold on to your Passport / current B permit while they do the processing? My family is due to travel in the next few weeks -- just want to make sure they can take their summer holiday and return to CH when they are done!

The don't keep anything, they just check them out at the office and you get them back, if the old permit is still valid, your family can travel and get back, if you're non EU and old permit is expired, make sure to ask for a multi entry visa (if required) + attestation of permit being renewed.
