Timeframe to start work after applying for Work Permit

Hi,
I had asked an official in the KriesBuro regarding the chances of me (non-EU on dependent L Permit) getting a Work Permit if I get a job. He had told me that it usually takes about 2 weeks to start work after I apply considering I have submitted the necessary documents like job contract, etc.
Can someone who has been through the same situation let me know how much timeframe should I be looking to start on work once I get a job and apply for permit?

Many thanks.

I may not have the best of knowledge but I believe for a nonEU dependent L permit, you will need to gain your work permit through your own merits.

In this case, your work contract is only valid upon the approval of the work permit. In the case that it is not approved, your work contract will also be considered invalid.

The fact you are in-country does save quite a bit of time but 2 weeks may be a little ambitious with the current workload of the authorities. I'd allow 4 weeks minimum. Shouldn't be a problem to a potential employer - they are used to waiting 3 months.
