Work Options

With its excellent quality of life, high wages and low tax rates, it’s no surprise that Switzerland is increasingly popular with job-seeking graduates. There are several types of work permit in Switzerland and the conditions of acquisition vary according to the person and the case.
  • B permit: It’s an initial or temporary residence permit valid for one year but can be extended each year, as long as there is no reason not to re-issue it.
  • L permit: It is a short-term residence permit that allows you to stay in Switzerland for up to one year. 
  • C permit: It is a resident permit for those who have lived in Switzerland for ten consecutive years. With this permit, you are allowed not only to stay in Switzerland but also to find a job. G permit: it is a cross-border authorisation for workers.
