A non-EU student with L permit need help

Hey guys,

I am currently a non-EU student studying in a university in St.Gallen and will graduate in the end of Aug. And I am with L-permit right now.

My situation is: I have signed a contract with a Swiss company in Titino. But the company HR contacted me that I have to go outbound after I finish my study, and they can only start the application when they receive my departure announcement from the foreigner's office.

My question is:
1. Is the outbound requirement only made for L-permit? I've never heard any of my classmates with B-permit asked to do so.

2. Where could I receive the departure announcement? In the airport? or should I register it in Ausländeramt before I leave?

3. Is it possible that I leave Switzerland before the graduation and let the company starts the application as soon as possible, then come back with a touring visa?

4. Considering I need to wait almost 4 months to get the work permit from now on and have signed the contract with the company, is there any policy/law that I can refer to protect myself from company's one-side annulment?

5. Any other tips could facilitate this procedure?

Thank you very much for any feedback/answers/tips/experience share.....

-Crystal

Crystal, at the risking of sounding unhelpful (not my intention btw), have you asked the HR department of the company in question? they could/should be able to advice you on what they need and how to obtain it.

Your HR dept is correct.

There was a recent (01.01.2010 ? can't remember) change where students with B permits can stay on for a few months as a job seeker. Prior to that Student B permit holders were also supposed to leave the country prior to obtaining employment.

At your local town hall when you deregister. Some universities may even do this for you.

Technically you should wait but plenty of people have got away with it. More difficult if you need are not inside the visa waiver scheme and need an actual visa. Whatever, you will need an actual visa alongise your work permit and will have to leave the country to collect that - many get it from the Swiss embassy in Germany for convenience.

Probably not. For a start, the company may not be successful in your work permit application. What does it say in the contract?

Do things properly. Do not try to cut corners.

Re: A non-EU student with L permit need help

I had a colleague who finished his bachelor and master in Switzerland, he was of course on a B permit for students, then he found a job in the company where I work and he didnt have to leave the country for getting his permit to work in the company, maybe this was an exception, I dont know, but Im sure he got it his work permit in without leaving the country (He's also non EU and started working in the company in 2009, before the new law for students took place).
