Re: Question regarding B-permit

It depends on the B-permit you have, I think.

My friend's is tied to her job, and she'd have to change her B-permit if she were to get another job.

I'm here on my husband's (which is not tied to his job), and I also have a B-permit. I'm allowed to work wherever.

You're going to get 10 different answers to the question here. I'd ask the nice people at the Migration Office or your District Office for some guidance. If her permit is like mine (tied to yours but allowed to work), she should be fine. However, rules are rules here, and you want to properly follow procedure!

Thanks you for your quick response. In my case, she came as a dependent with B-permit along with the work eligibility.

Ok I will try to call Migrationamt and get it clarified. Thank you for your suggestion.

Yes - she needs her permit to be updated to reflect her new situation.

I had the same situation with my wife, and it's how it works:
The employer of your wife is going to apply the commune for a work permit and then your wife's work permit B will be changed from "sans activite" to "avec activite". But most probably she's here because of you, and this will be stated in the work permit as "regroupement familial, sejour limite aux fonctions du conjoint" meaning, if you leave your job, they're going to kick you and your wife out of the country for good.
