Question regarding permit renewal

Hello,

I am an Indian, working for a Swiss Company Based in Geneva. Thru this company, I am working on a Contract to another Company Based in Zurich.
My company is having a contract with the Zurich Company.

My workpermit (L) was initially from Geneva. Then the Kreisburo asked me to Transfer to Zurich. So for the first year the permit was from Geneva, then the Permit was transferred to Zurich. Now when my application for Permit renewal was submitted, the works department in Zurich is asking for documents like project description, job description, job contract.

My questions are

1. Is it normal they ask these things even for Renewal.
2. Will I get B permit or a L Permit. (My understaning is L permit cannot be extended for more than 2 years).

Thank you

Regards

Hallo ,

I am also an Indian... I think it is quite normal to ask for those docs for extending L permit.

For two years you will be getting L permit.. After second year, it should be a B, but nowadays there are lot of L to B rejections.. chances are very less for a B permit

And this is happening a lot with Indian nationals working through an Swiss based Indian company.

Yes... I know two Indians from Olten, who had to return back due to unsuccessful L to B conversion... Happened in June 2010..

Re: Question regarding permit renewal

The Works amt is asking for more documents.

My role in the project from the Zurich company.
Once we provided this, then they asked for the above letter from the Parent Company. (The contract was between my company and the sister company of the Zurich Company)
Once that was provided then they have asked for

The contract between the Client and the Zurich Company.

Not sure what else they will ask for

Will Provide an update once I get to know something.

Regards

At least they don't stop asking means good sign.

Exactly the same thing happened to me as well.

Authority will make a decision of my case today.

My finger is now bent due to long term crossed..

Just to be clear because it is a little confusing:

You have a contract with company A based in Gevneva.
They have a contract with company B in Zurich.
Company B in Zurich have a contract with company C in Zurich
You actually work at company C.

If that is the case I suspect that the ZH authorities are interested in company A from a bodyshop license perspective (50K CHF must be deposited with ZH in a case like yours).

The above arrangement is very much frowned upon in Switzerland hence the bodyshop license which is intended to discourage the pratice.

You probably have nothing to worry about. Companies A and B might have though .

sys4cd,

I didnt understand what you meant by.
I'm a employee of Swiss branch office meaning our company is not
Switzerland nationality company. HQ is located in US.
Authority only concerns my project in Customer side and
they kept on asking my task and contract duration.. so forth.
I'm pretty sure they have totally no idea about my detail task since they
don't know verndor specific products detail at all.

From their perspective customer's strong support document is still not enough

Anyway.. nowadays their way of checking is really conservative.

Our company is independent software vendor which can't be switzerland
nationality and I realized my contract doesn't help me to stay here.

Even I have no engagement of project, my company will pay for me.
Why they care about my project...and what a none sense here

Re: Question regarding permit renewal

The Zurich AWA refused my workpermit.
Reason, non-eu cannot work more than 2 years as a contractor.

So packing my bags.

Thanks everyone for your support.
See you soon

Do you have a document stating this? It would be a completely new thing and would have major implications for many on the forum.

I suspect the reason is actually that the maximum 2 years on an L permit are up and the conversion to a B is refused for either quote or other reasons.
